Rhymes of Change: Amir Issaa Introduces CU Students to Multicultural Italy

This past week, Chapman Italian Studies students had the opportunity to participate in an Italian rap workshop by Amir Issaa, a rapper from Rome who is touring the United States to share his story, talent, and ideas. Amir is a child of an immigrant Egyptian father and an Italian mother. Amir’s lyrics are well-known in Italy, and he has become a point of reference for today’s Italian youth of different national family backgrounds. Amir guided students through a lesson on rhyme in Italian along with a discussion on the issues in Italy and ended with a live performance of his original songs.
