Fairy tale in Italy

Puss-in-Tuscany

Puss-in-Tuscany

This is a bit of a cross-post from the Monash Fairy Tale Salon, but the good news is, Fairy Tale in Italy is part of the 2014 Monash Prato programme.

That’s right – a chance to study fairy tale in Tuscany! We’ll be looking at the first European authors of fairy tale, Straparola and Basile, Collodi’s Pinocchio and the tales collected by Italo Calvino, including those which were originally sourced from the area right around Prato itself.

There’s an information session, details below:

Date – Monday 28th October
Time – 1:00pm – 2:30pm
Location – R1 (Bldg 8), Clayton Campus
More information is available at http://artsonline.monash.edu.au/prato/
We always have a fantastic time. The programme is full and challenging, but you do get to study in Italy! I can also advise on the best place for gelato and gluten free food and the best museums in which to see Cinderella’s shoes (okay, perhaps not her actual shoes, but close enough!).
