Just a little bit of catch up...
Part of the Temple Rome study abroad program is weekend class trips. I am currently taking two art history courses which required two weekends of class trips. My first excursion was to Napoli with my Italian Baroque course, a time where we were able merge Caravaggio with Napolean pizza. But what I was really looking forward to was my trip with Professor Frank Dabell to Florence. It definitely lived up to my expectations. We viewed many masterpieces, laughed a lot, and had a gelato or cappuccino stop almost every hour. Here are just a few snap shots portraying beautiful Florence, amazing works and fun people.
