You might choose to research the importance of the literary canon in Italy, and its relation to the country’s high culture as a whole. Or, you might examine Italy’s role in the spread of Christianity, and particularly the cultural importance of the role of The Vatican. You may even explore how many Italian traditions can be traced to their regional origins due to the country’s political past.
Careers in this field may include roles in the public and private sectors such as heritage management, public relations, journalism, academia and publishing.
