Welcome to the website of the Spring 2020 Italian Studies senior seminar. Over the semester we have studied the influence of Italian people, culture, and practices in South America. After conducting our own research, this webpage has pages in Italian and English dedicated to our diverse array of findings including: the influence of soccer in South America, the diffusion of Italian Fascism throughout the continent, the impact of Italian enological expertise on Mendoza’s wine industry, the influence of Italian immigration on Argentinian theatre, Italian immigration in Uruguay and the influence of Italian cuisine in South America. Welcome and Enjoy!
