“Stratfor explains that Italy’s main geographic challenge is to preserve its unity despite strong regional identities.” For more of these videos, visit http://arcg.is/1IeK3dT
Italy’s a country that we may think of as monolithic, but (like so many other countries) it has some deep and persistent regional distinctions. These videos are older, but the the divisions discussed are still pertinent. Stratfor also added a video of Italy in their “Geographic Challenge” series. I’ve updated my map which spatially indexes 70+ of their videos that are especially relevant to geography teachers to include this one. These videos are great starting points for students that are researching a particular country.
