Italy 2011

French sculptor Niki di St. Phalle’s “Tarot Garden” in Tuscany was just one famous work of art visited by honors students in July 2011.

The class was taking Professor Anne Dawson’s Honors course, “Art in the Italian Landscape.” They also visited the Fountain of the River Gods at the Villa Farnese in Caprarola, Italy; the Park of Monsters in Bomarzo, Italy, a collection of volcanic rock carvings created by architect Pirro Ligorio in the 1500s; Etruscan tombs in Ceveteri; and churches, piazzas and other historical art in Viterbo, Bagnoregio, and Florence.
