Program Details

A study of the famous masterpieces of Italian painting from the late Gothic to the high Renaissance.  Artists include Giotto, Masaccio, Piero della Francesca, Simone Martini, and Michelangelo.  Our visits to museums will also take in many works by Leonardo, Botticelli, Bernini and others. Students will read the writings that the artists themselves drew on for their stories, including some of the biblical apocrypha and the lives of the saints.

Not only do students see on site the great works of art that cannot be moved from their locations – the inside of churches and chapels, for which these paintings were intended ; students will also experience the magical beauty of some of Italy’s loveliest towns, historically and culturally important places like Florence and Rome.

Testimonial:
Italian food is AMAZING!!! It was so nice having Dr. Margaritis there because he was able to find out where all the locals usually eat and then arrange for a group dinner there. So, not only did we get Italian food but we got good, local-favorite Italian food!
