Alumni travel to Rome

Author: School of Architecture

The Alumni Association of the Victorian Society Summer Schools and the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture will host a 10-day course in the study of late 19th- and 20th-century Roman architecture, June 10 – 20, 2011 touring the cities of Rome, Como, and Milan. Part one will be directed by Professor Steven Semes, academic director of the University of Notre Dame Rome Studies Program, focusing on Roman architecture from 1870-1940. The second part, led by Professor Antonino Saggio, an educator with the University of Roma “La Sapienza” specializing in early 20th-century Italian architecture, focuses on rationalist and modern architecture in Northern Italy.

The program is open to alumni and friends of the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture and members of the Victorian Society. Through lectures, site visits, and tours of important buildings, participants will acquire a deeper understanding of the aesthetic, social, economic, and political forces that shape our modern age. Lunches provided. Most dinners on own, although several group dinners and receptions are included.
