This summer, a group of students set off from Buena Vista and traveled to Italy to study the Renaissance in a ten-day academic adventure. The group, led by Professor Crawford, visited not only the bustling cities of Rome, Florence, Venice and Milan, but also small country towns such as Spello, giving students first hand exposure to both the vivacious life and architecture of ancient Italian cities and the quiet culture of the Italian countryside.
Along with the range of cultural experiences that the Italian adventurers gained, they saw in person some of the most revered and iconic pieces of art in the world, ranging from sculptures by Bernini and Michelangelo to Brunelleschi’s Duomo in Florence.
