Italianismo is a new study abroad course offered by the Faculty of Arts and Design at George Brown College and the Office of Continuing Studies at OCAD University. This course introduces students to the art, design, architecture, history, fashion, and cuisine of Italy. The course takes place in Rome, Florence, and Venice. Some highlights include visiting the Colosseum and the Duomo, taking a day trip to the ancient port city of Ostia Antica, and a cycling tour of Tuscany. Students will research different areas then participate as tour guides for the group during on-site visits. Students will develop their own creative projects at the OCAD U Florence Studio amidst a backdrop of architectural and artistic treasures from the Italian Renaissance. Before the trip there is one week of basic Italian language instruction and an orientation about life in Italy. To conclude the course, students participate in an exhibition of Italianismo inspired work at the School of Design Gallery, George Brown College.
Total cost including travel is $5,400.
A non-refundable deposit of $1,000 is required by December 6, 2013.
