THE ART OF RENAISSANCE IN FLORENCE AND ROME

Summer Course for International Students

Period: 04 July 2016 – 15 July 2016 (2 weeks)

Florence, originally founded by the Romans, was governed by the Medici family for centuries. Most of them had a passionate interest in painting, sculpture, architecture and literature. Still Florence keeps an exceptional artistic heritage which is a marvelous evidence of its aged culture.

Florence is the most marked example of Renaissance cities in Italy. Nowhere else in Italy does one find this multitude of buildings and works of art from this period. Among the cultural highlights is the magnificent cathedral (Santa Maria

del Fiore), churches that contain breathtaking frescocycli, renowned museums (e.g. Uffizi, Bargello, Accademia), and impressive city-palaces (e.g. Palazzo Strozzi, Palazzo Rucellai, Palazzo Pitti, Palazzo Medici Riccardi and Palazzo Vecchio, the famous city hall). Apart from stimulating lectures the Summer School programme also includes a weekend excursion to Rome.

Teaching staff: Prof. dr. Michael Kwakkelstein, Prof. dr. Gert Jan van der Sman, and others

Organised in cooperation with Summerschool Utrecht
