  • Therefore Italianicity requires a stereotyped image of Italian culture as con- structed by foreigners and their tourist experience, be it personal or mediated through magazines, films or advertisements.

  • Education is an important tool in the fight against HIV/AIDS. And while most schools are welcoming to children, some schools fail to provide the necessary protection for children to flourish and, in fact, may expose young people – especially girls – to violence.
