HART391 Rome: Glorious and Notorious

Rome: Glorious and Notorious (From Rome to Venice) Enrollment by application only. See travel course section for official registration procedures. This on-site course provides students with a profound educational experience, placing them in a long tradition of artist-travelers and nascent scholars living and working in the Eternal City and the Serene Republic. Immersed in the culture of ancient and post-imperial Rome, students examine at first-hand a breathtaking variety of monuments and works of art, including many not generally accessible to the public. The course then moves to Venice, where the legacy of Rome, transformed as the Byzantine Empire, gave rise to another great culture, and also established, in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, a “rival Renaissance,”. under the auspices of its myriad artists and architects.
