Today we met at ACCENT for our final lecture of the inaugural MSU Sports Journalism Study Abroad.
Professor Simon Martin met with us to give his lecture: Sport Italia: 150 Years of Disunity. He touched on many topics that gave us a feel for the importance and impact sport has had on politics, economics and culture in Italy over the years.
Students interacted with historic propaganda, searching for the meaning behind photos and paintings that shocked Italian culture at the time of publication. To this day, many of the meanings are left up to the imagination.
Tomorrow we will embark on our final adventure in Rome … Stay tuned!
