Discover why Rome is known as the “Eternal City”. In this full-immersion journey, you will explore this timeless city while growing your knowledge of Classical Arts. The course alternates lectures about classical sculpture, ceramics, and painting to visits to Rome’s most iconic monuments, museums, and exhibitions. While discovering the fascinating history of ancient artists and their religious and cultural inspirations, you will develop a personal project: a booklet presenting your vision of Rome, containing pictures, drawings, articles, and inclusive of notes taken during class and in your spare time. Milan is a center not only of fashion and design, but also of contemporary art. This course combines lectures about today’s most influential artists, with an active discovery of Milan’s contemporary art scenes. Students will visit museum collections, private foundations, and international art galleries, including venues like Boschi di Stefano Museum-Home collection, Museo del Novecento, Gallerie d’Italia, Fondazione Prada, and Pirelli HangarBicocca (located in a former Pirelli factory). As they discover new artists, techniques, themes, and media, participants will collect their impressions in a personal project: a booklet expressing their vision of Milan, containing pictures, drawings, articles, and inclusive of notes taken during class and in your spare time.
