Program Description:
THEA 2750 Performing Italian
Matthew Maguire  , Joseph Perricone Rome 3

Acting is an exciting way to learn a language because one’s need to master the language is motivated by the desire to inhabit the imaginary circumstances created by great playwrights.
Students will advance their fluency in Italian to act in Italian while in residence in Rome during the month of July at the Irish College, only few steps away from the Colosseum. With Joseph Perricone of Fordham’s Modern Languages Department, students will explore structure and grammar, and expand their vocabulary by reading, writing, and speaking in a full-immersion mode in Italian. The Acting will be taught by Matthew Maguire, Director of Fordham’s Theater Department using a play by Nobel Prize winning author Dario Fo, Non tutti i Ladri Vengono Per Nuocere (Not All Thieves Come to Harm You). The course will be enhanced by trips to Roman theatres, specially to plays by Nobel price-winning playwright, Luigi Pirandello, and to an opera performance by Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, performed outdoors in the ancient ruins of the Baths of Caracalla.
