Italian Newspaper Features MSHP '24 Cohort in Sardinia

Author: McKenzie Lookebill

On Monday, September 4, five students entering their second year of the Masters of Science in Historic Preservation were featured in an Italian newspaper, La Nuova Sardegna. The article highlighted their trip to the area and the study they are doing at the Church of Saint Andrew, an ancient building constructed on an even more ancient building.

Translated by Professor Steven Seems, the article states, “The ancient parish church of Saint Andrew, rising in the 16th century, is a splendid example of Catalan-Aragonese construction. The first historical evidence for this church is found in an ecclesiastical document of 1539 and it is very probable that the church, whose remains we can observe today on the eastern outskirts of town, was constructed on the remains of a church from the Byzantine period.”
