What alumni of the programs say about their experience at Gustolab International

“I think the strength of the GustoLab lies in its ability to introduce students to some of the most prominent players in the field of food entrepreneurship, critical food studies, and historical preservation of food culture. Nowhere else do students have the opportunity to discuss the cultural politics of food with the very people who are shaping the field of study on this topic in Rome.” Ashley Young, Phd Student, CSFI SUMMER 2014 PROGRAM STUDENT

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA-CHAMPAIGN

GLi is the Rome Center for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). The program gives students the opportunity to learn and experience the Italian Culture through Food Studies courses. Topics range from food history to the critical analysis on food systems, from the sustainable agriculture to architecture, from nutrition to the use of media and/or design to communicate food products. An onsite facilitator is always available to support students in their new life studying abroad and to provide cross-cultural education and mediation.

During the summer program, students learn to analyze Italian food and wine, study nutrition, explore local and global food communication trends and work on a video project, and learn the Italian language. An important part of the program is intercultural and experiential learning, which allows students to learn about the cultural aspects of the food system through visits, excursions and meetings with professionals, Italian students and community members. After the program, students have the option to continue on to do a 4-week internship in various locations throughout Italy.

What alumni of the programs say about their experience at GLi

“This program was the best decision I ever made. Gustolab International is a great school that helped immerse me into the Italian culture while also teaching me about nutrition and sustainability” – Student from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

“As cliché as it sounds, studying abroad really does change your life. For me, Gustolab has opened my eyes to the world of incredible wine, olive oil and food production in general. Sustainability is definitely something I want to implement in my life and in my diet. Come with an open mind and allow yourself to be flown away by the Italian language,food and vital environmental issues.” – Student from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
