Rich in history and culture and with a singular place in the development of Western art, Italy offers unique perspectives to all students of the arts and design.

Once divided into small warring principalities, the Italian Peninsula still retains regional differences in art, architecture, dialect, and cuisine.

Today Italy faces political questions that reflect the pressures of modern globalization.

This course examines the art, culture, and everyday life in Italy, while providing students an opportunity to work in the medium of their choice. It also traces Italian art and culture from the Renaissance to present day.
