Summer: Rutgers- Art History in Rome
Rome, “the Eternal City,” has long been a crossroads of peoples, cultures, and civilizations. Today, it is the thriving capital of a modern and increasingly multicultural Italian state, and displays evidence of its ancient, medieval, and modern faces, often in stark juxtaposition. It is not uncommon to find classical monuments, Renaissance art, and twentieth century architecture seemingly jumbled together at every turn of its cobblestone streets. For this program, the city and its many monuments, fountains, churches, museums, and galleries will be your classroom, bringing you into direct contact with the works of some of Western civilization’s most influential artists.

Accommodations and Meals
Students will live in a student residence with other students from the program. The student residence offers common areas for living, dining, and studying. Students will also share bathroom and kitchen facilities with other building residents. Linens, kitchen appliances and supplies, and basic furniture will be provided. Toiletries are not provided. A cleaning service comes once a week, but students are responsible for throwing out trash and keeping the apartment orderly. There is no air conditioning in the apartments, which is quite typical of Roman homes. There is a washer and a drying rack for clothes. Internet access is available but not always at high speeds.
Meals are not included in the cost of the program. Students will have access to a furnished kitchen in the residence, and are encouraged to supply their own groceries and provide their own meals. In addition, there are many restaurants in the area of your residence, but cooking meals will lower the cost of your stay in Rome.
