We will examine the history, culture, art and dramatic literature of the Italian peninsula, through reading, lectures, and visits to sites in Rome, Florence, Siena and Prato, Italy. The study will include courses that examine theatricality and theater practice in Italian culture from the Roman era through the Renaissance and 18th Century.

At the same time you will experience the vibrant culture of modern-day Tuscany.
