Rome for the holidays

Monday December 20 2010


Thirty LC students will be heading for Rome to study "The Eternal City: Rome as Art and Museum" over the holiday break.

Dr. Delane Karalow, assistant professor of art; Barbara Rothermel, director of the Daura Gallery; and Steve Coates, adjunct professor of photography, will lead this 16-day study abroad program.

Fine arts students will experience some of the greatest art and architecture the world has produced, while photography students will have the opportunity to capture Rome on film.

Highlights include: the heart of ancient Rome featuring the Colosseum and Trajan's and Constantine's columns, as well as the Baroque Piazza Navona, and one of the most perfect buildings to survive antiquity, the Pantheon. A trip to Vatican City includes St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house the Sistine Chapel and Michelangelo's frescoes. Students will also take an excursion to Tivoli to Hadrian's Villa and the Villa d'Este.
