A student studying abroad with Stephen F. Austin State University (SFA): Renaissance Art in Italy Up Close
I learned a lot about different periods of art, saw tons of art, learned about the history of the Italy. I gained the experience of knowing I can be on my own and I will be fine. I gained new relationships and connections. The entire experience was one I pray I will never forget. Yes, this trip was worth whiled. - Stephen F. Austin State University View Entire Review
I learned more about the political history of Florence and how it inpacted the Renaissance and art world we know today. Also learned more about biblical figures from artworks and how much Catholic churches influenced or commissioned artists to come up with their subject matter. - Stephen F.

About

14 1/2 days in Florence, Siena, Arezzo, and Rome - all ideal places to study the history of Renaisssance art in Italy first hand.  Visits include:


  • The Dome of Florence Cathedral 

  • Michaelangelo's David

  • Botticelli's Birth of Venus in the Uffizi Museum

  • Pitti Palace museums

  • Churches

  • A day trip to Siena, which rivaled Florence politically in the 1200s and 1300s

  • A day trip to Arezzo to see Piero della Francesca's True Cross fresco cycle and experience a mid-size town with few tourists

  • 3 1/2 days in Rome to visit Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, the Roman Forum and Colosseum, among others 

Being based in Florence facilitates interacting with students and faculty at the Libera delle Belle Arti (LABA) art school, with which SFA and the School of Art have had an exchange program since 2014.
