The Art of Italy

June 7-25, 2014

In our eleventh year of Study Abroad travel, the IPFW Department of Fine Arts is excited to announce its 2013 program, The Art of Italy.  After flying from Chicago to Rome, we will tour the cityIPFW Student Study in Italy that is home to such wonders as the Colosseum and Forum, the Vatican Museum with its Sistine Chapel, and the Borghese Palace, full of beautiful sculptures by Bernini and paintings by Caravaggio. We will then train to Venice, one of the most unique cities in the world and a United Nations Education, Science, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage site. While there, we will tour the Doge’s Palace and the Academia Museum which house paintings by such masters as Veronese and Giorgione. We will take a trip from Venice to Padua and view the ground breaking frescos of the artist Giotto in the Arena Chapel as well as visit the pilgrimage church of Saint Anthony. On our way to Florence, we will experience the wonderful city of Ravenna, noted for its world class collection of Byzantine mosaics. Lastly, while residing in Florence, travelers will understand why this city was the epicenter of the Italian Renaissance. Visits there will include the Uffizi Museum with paintings such as Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, the Academia Museum with Michelangelo’s David, and the impressive Pitti Palace and Gardens. While in Florence we will travel to the towns of Pisa to visit its Campanile or ‘Leaning Tower’, and Siena, one of the most authentic medieval towns in Europe. This is guaranteed to be an amazing art adventure.  For complete cost and itinerary [PDF]. A PDF Reader is required to view this document.
