ITAL311 - VENICE: REPRESNTN/RECPTN

This course focuses on the city of Venice and its elusive identity as represented in written, visual and built form. Structured as a series of topics and case studies (including primary visual and written sources; buildings and gardens) the course will introduce students to the material and cultural landscape of Venice and develop their ability to "read" the urban fabric and its unique physical context by identifying its various features and explaining the political, social, economic and cultural agendas that brought them into existence. The course includes visits to Van Pelt Library and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
