Ravenna & Bologna Study Trip

Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 08:00 to Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 20:00

AH2012 Medieval Art & Architecture
AR1020 Materials & Techniques

A major goal of the trip is to see first-hand examples of Early Christian and Early Byzantine architecture. It is not possible to see these architectural style-periods in the Paris region. And first and foremost, the goal is to see as many medieval mosaics as possible on-site. Mosaics are difficult to photograph, they depend completely on their architecture settings, and they reflect off of natural sunlight. It is one of those art forms that must be experienced on site! Seeing original mosaics in Ravenna has changed the course of artists’ careers, such as Gustav Klimt. Bologna is one of the culturally most important cities in Italy, home to the oldest universities, a remarkably well-preserved historical center, and dozens of artistic treasures dating from Etruscan to modern times.
