This cross-disciplinary subject, taught on site in Florence, provides students with an introduction to Italian and European culture, language, history, art, and politics. It examines Western approaches to the use, production, and study of texts in their visual, oral, as well as written forms. By investigating the history and art of Florence and Italy, this subject encourages students to develop insights into the connections and transmission of ideas across a wide range of media: paintings, architecture, films, and other artefacts. This subject runs for three weeks. Whilst based in Florence, this subject will also include excursions to other Tuscan cities.

This subject will incur additional costs such as travel and accommodation. Students may be eligible to apply for the Melbourne Global Grant. Please ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria before applying http://www.mobility.unimelb.edu.au/outbound/study-abroad/index.html
