The course in question will receive the recognition of 1 extracurricular cfu. Attendance at the course is not compulsory, but it is desirable that all students attend at least the first lesson of the course so that they can ascertain the degree of skills and knowledge possessed.

A booklet of teaching materials (handout) will be made available to students after the start of the course. The booklet includes texts related to some topics of the lectures, and is in effect a subject of examination for attending students.

TEXTS D. Alighieri, Comedy: Inferno, Purgatorio - reading of at least 50 cantos - D. Alighieri, Epistle to Cangrande - material supplied in the booklet - D. Alighieri, Monarchia, a c. di D. Quaglioni, Milano, Mondadori, 2015 (or other economic edition) - E. Auerbach, Farinata and Cavalcante, in Mimesis - material supplied in the booklet - E.

Assessment

Oral exam, after passing the written exam of the preparatory course "Language and writing". (See the section "Possible Prerequisites"). The aim is to enhance the oral argumentative skills of individual students in relation to a discipline that requires the possession of a specific vocabulary. During the test, the attending student is required to report, during the interview, on the topics covered by the study texts, which must demonstrate that they have read and understood every textual and critical aspect. Students will be assessed using the following criteria: (1) subject knowledge. - (2) ability to reason appropriately on the subject matter of the application. - (3) ability to expose matter with language properties. Those tests that demonstrate the student's possession of good critical and in-depth skills will be evaluated as "excellent"; the ability to orient oneself with certain mastery of the subject within the main topics covered in class, also establishing, if necessary, links; the ability to use the technical vocabulary of the discipline in a safe and accurate way. Those tests which demonstrate the student's possession of a mnemonic knowledge of the contents will be evaluated as "fair"; a minimum critical ability and connection between the main themes with the use of the language and the technical lexicon of the discipline. Those tests that demonstrate the achievement by the student of a minimum amount of knowledge regarding the fundamentals of the discipline, even in the presence of some training gaps, as well as the use of a language that is not entirely appropriate will be evaluated as "sufficient". Those tests that highlight difficulties in orientation of the student with respect to the topics addressed in the exam texts, serious training gaps with respect to the founding principles of the discipline and the non-use or improper use of the specific vocabulary will be evaluated negatively.
