Italian Through Film: The Classics is a flexible tool for teachers who strive towards content-based instruction and believe that learning a language should be meaningful and enjoyable. It is based around fifteen classic Italian films which are frequently found in the libraries of many schools and universities, and which can otherwise easily be rented from any video store. It is an adaptable ancillary tool geared towards both high school and college instruction as well as towards adult education. It is comprised of fifteen chapters, one for each of the fifteen selected movies. The films include: Roma, città aperta, Ladri di biciclette, Divorzio all’italiana, Il Decameron, and Tre fratelli
