Italy

Art, food, and history in the birthplace of The Rennaisance

Our school year closes in a city that abounds with creativity, a city whose artists and inventors have been vital sources of inspiration since the 1400s: Florence, Italy. During our time in the birthplace of The Renaissance, we’ll debate the human experience while surrounded by Old World charm. A visit to Leonardo Da Vinci’s workshop might have our history classes discussing the merits of his various inventions, reiterating their points by referencing his actual diagrams and drawings. Close-up views of some of the Renaissance’s most famous paintings and sculptures might spark new creative projects for our young artists, their sketchpads filled to the brim with interpretations of Florence’s breathtaking Baroque, neoclassical, and modern structures.  

And if our students should find the authentic pizza slices and gelato a little too alluring, they can always combine exercise and culture by climbing the 463 stairs of the Florence Cathedral. Those fit enough to make it to the top will be rewarded with a breathtaking view of one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.

The Sicilian Experiment

Sicily. An island coveted in natural wonders, ancient ruins, and distinctive street food.

As we embarked on a backpacking trip along the west coast; sensory sounds and visuals captured the essence of the isolated nature felt within the local towns. This short encapsulates the overstimulation one experiences through their first steps into the bustling archipelago rooted in the Mediterranean.
