The campaign for Hartwick students

Art and Architecture of Italy

Location: Rome, Orvieto, Florence, and Venice

Course: ARTH 307

Students experience the art and architecture of ancient through modern Italy and gain a deep understanding of objects and their religious and political functions. They explore architectural spaces and monuments, and learn how cities and towns integrate them into a community. Placing objects in their political, religious, and historical contexts, students see for themselves the great works of Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Ghiberti, Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello, Titian, Tintoretto, Caravaggio, Bernini, and Gentileschi. They trace the steps of Roman emperors and gladiators, popes and princes, martyrs, and heretics and conduct research while winding through the canals of Venice, the markets of Florence, and the catacombs of Rome.


Prerequisite: Successful completion of ARTH 220 (2 credit preparatory course)
Instructors: Professor of Art History/Coordinator of the Individual Studies Program, Elizabeth Ayer and Associate Professor of Art & Art History, Douglas Zullo
Length of program: 22 days

My experience at Hartwick College would not have been possible without the scholarships that I received. If I had the opportunity to thank the people who donated to those scholarships, I’d take them to my cabin at Pine Lake, make them a cup of Malian tea, show them my pictures, and just try to communicate what the past four years have meant to me because it’s been incredible and I am so happy I was able to be here.
