This course is designed to introduce students to the art and architecture of the Italian peninsula from the Ancient Greeks to the Renaissance. Special consideration will be given to the relation of the works of art to their cultural, historical, and intellectual contexts. No previous experience in art history is required. This course meets twice a week: on Tuesdays, we meet in the classroom and on Thursdays we meet directly onsite in Florence. You’ll participate in classroom lectures, discussions, small group assignments, site visits, and field study trips, including day trips to Rome and to Pisa/Carrara.
Registration restriction: Students may not register for both this course and HOA 320.
Course-related fee: A fee will be billed from Syracuse to cover the costs of required trips (2017–2018 fee = $340). Some “all-school” field trips are required or recommended.
Departments: Art & Music Histories, History of Art, History of Music
