Investigate Italy's rich heritage in the arts. The program will have a shared focus on the Renaissance and parallel developments across the arts, but will also look at contemporary influences, culture and practice. A mix of lectures, field trips and discussions will enhance learning on-site. Seize the opportunity for in-depth personal research as well as collaboration through interdisciplinary approaches to the course materials and content.Art History Study three phases of Renaissance art by way of works of art and structures to be seen and visited in person. Explore museums that include works of art dating back to pre-Roman origins, frescoes by the greatest masters of the Early Renaissance, and works of art commissioned by some the most powerful dynasties in Italy.
Music History Experience venues that directly affected the composition of pieces and their construction to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation to music. Because music only exists in time, it is often difficult to truly appreciate a composition, the acoustics and the historical aspects of its inception. Enjoy the opportunity to be in a space where musical pieces were intended to be performed.
Studio Art Explore Italy, a country that has inspired visual artists for centuries. Visit examples of classical architecture, Roman influences, master frescoes, commissioned works and palaces of important patrons of the arts. Consider objects in context, places with purpose, and history with the added insights of presence.
