Castle in Tuscany Project

Starting from June 2022, the FAU Italian Program organizes a summer research camp in the medieval castle of Castiglione del Terziere, in Lunigiana, the hilly northern part of Tuscany. The castle was the home of Dr. Loris Bononi, MD, poet and mecenate of the arts, and it houses a unique collection of first printing editions of Italian literature.

Thanks to the friendship of the castle owner, Raffaella Paoletti, and the mediation of Barbara Salani, pianist and FAU PhD student, and Maria Rosa Borghi, Director of Education of the Italian Consulate General in Miami, we are able to offer a 5-day Poetry and Creative Writing Camp. Watch Dr. Paoletti's invitation.

The Research Camp dates are from June 26 to June 30, 2022, in concomitance with the Opera and Master classes led by Dr. Mitchell Hutchings and Barbara Salani. The summer research camp is open to a limited number of students and friends of the FAU Italian program. This is an open invitation to participate in your Professors' research. Research assistantships are also available. For more information on both camps click Opera al Castello-Music and Poetry.
