Florence, Italy, May 30, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Rome is the only and true Eternal City with its 28 centuries of history still visible in the unique complex of masterpieces that have survived the passage of centuries.
A place where each new civilization overlapped the old one, a multilayered open air museum where visitors can see a medieval church next to imperial roman ruins and with Renaissance and Baroque art masterpieces decorating its inside.
A city whose urban richness has been shaped by emperors and popes but where art experiments are still alive as shown by the architects Renzo Piano and Richard Meier, the contemporary heirs of artists such as Giotto, Raphael, Michelangelo, Bernini, Borromini and Caravaggio.
To let students appreciate such complexity and beauty at its best while learning Italian language is the aim of the History of Art in Rome Course.
The History of Art in Rome course consists of an introductory classroom session followed by three on-site guided tours. The syllabus is constructed as a series of interlocking journeys of discovery.
During the first session a combination of texts, slides, illustrations and maps will introduce students to the art history of Rome and its development through time, from Republican Rome to the contemporary world.
Further information about the art history courses in Rome are available on the school’s website.
