Why Venice?

The study abroad leaders are two native Venetians: Dr. Ilaria Serra and Dr. Emanuele Pettener still have many ties with their hometown and are glad to share their knowledge of the city with the students.

On alternate years, the Program is co-led by a professor of the College of Science, and a professor of the College of Design and Social Inquiry, who takes advantage of the Architecture Biennale exposition in Venice.

Venice is a unique city. Its silences, its colors, its reflections on the waters make it a place that does not belong to the logic of this world, and struggles to keep its fragile identity. Living in such a place – while studying it and striving to understand its history and its contradictions – is an unforgettable experience. Students live in the city for six weeks, meeting its inhabitants and visiting its museums and surrounding areas.

Our program is also unique. Classes are structured around visits to the city landmarks and participation to local activities, from craft making – bakeries, glass factories, wineries, mask laboratories – to volunteering events. Lessons are enriched with guest lectures by local artists, actors, writers (sometimes in their own homes), filmmakers and film critics (with classes held at la Fabbrica del Vedere).
