Professors Adrienne Bell (Art History) and Carrie-Ann Biondi (Philosophy) co-teach a study-abroad course in Venice entitled “Art and Philosophy in Venice.” In January 2010, students visited and gave presentations at historical, artistic, and archaeological sites in Venice, Padua, Verona, and Vicenza. In this photograph, students are seen at Palladio’s Villa Rotunda (Villa Capra) in Vicenza. Throughout the course, they discuss connections between artistic movements and leading philosophical ideas from the ancient world to the modern era.
English and World Literature Professor Peter Naccarato has spent the last few summers teaching at the Umbra Institute, Perugia, Italy. “I have brought groups of MMC students to Perugia, Italy, where I teach a course at the Umbra Institute called Mangiamo: Food in Italian Literature & Film. MMC students share apartments with visiting students from other U.S. colleges and universities and have opportunities to study the Italian language or to take courses in other facets of Italian history and culture. We also travel around Umbria and Tuscany and students have also travelled to the other parts of Italy (Rome, Venice, Sorrento, Capri) and Europe (Barcelona, Greece, etc).”
Professors Alessandra Leri (Chemistry) and Jason Rosenfeld (Art History) took students to Rome during a Spring semester. The students had hands-on experience studying Roman art history from antiquity to Baroque, and were able to utilize their newly acquired language skills. On the last day of the trip, Carol Berman ’14 delivered a presentation on the Colossus of Constantine, the colossal acrolithic statue of the Roman emperor Constantine the Great, pictured here in the courtyard of the Palazzo dei Conservatori of the Musei Capitolini with the group.
