The ACM Florence Arts, Humanities and Culture Program provides an excellent opportunity to study Renaissance painting, sculpture, architecture, history, and literature for students interested in art, history, Romance Languages, and the humanities. Italian language instruction, a studio art course, and thematic, often interdisciplinary courses providing a broad perspective on Italian contributions to world civilization facilitate students' understanding of Florentine artistic and cultural heritage.
Visits to museums and galleries, short field trips and longer field trips to Venice and Rome, as well as discussions with local scholars supplement the course work. Staying with Italian host families enriches participants' awareness of modern Italian life.
Prerequisite: at least four courses chosen from classical, medieval, and Renaissance history (including the history of art, music, religion, and theater), study of Italian. Rosetta Stone for Italian is available in the Burkhardt Language Center, Davis Hall.
Period: one semester (fall) or one trimester (winter). Credits: 4.5 or 3.
Program advisor: Professor Nick Regiacorte.
