The training objective of the Reportage workshop is to delve into the history of investigative journalism, through the technical, aesthetic, and political analysis of two famous reportages. Students will also experience, firsthand, the design and writing of their own reportage, on a topic agreed with the professor, to be developed in synergy with the group of colleagues in the course. The workshop is thus divided into two parts: after an initial phase of in-depth historical and stylistic study on reportage, as a hybrid form straddling journalism, photography, and literature, we will move on to the assignment of individual work. The learning outcome involves the writing of an individual reportage and its eventual publication on the Stori3 website. During the workshop, meetings with reporters, photojournalists and investigative journalists are planned.
