World News Report: Italy



Many subject areas on Italy are well covered in the English language, but not all. It can be a real challenge when your topic is off the well beaten academic trail. Use these pages as a starting point and check the other subject guides as well. The city of Rome is part of the curriculum here, so check the tabs for research suggestions in different areas as well as information on Roman logistics.
