Renaissance Italy with Tony Junker AIA
13-24 May 2018
Architecture has been described as ‘frozen music’ and few times in history has this idea been more powerfully revealed than in the richly woven visual polyphony of the humanistic Italian Renaissance. In this eleven day excursion through central Italy, architect and program director Tony Junker AIA, assisted by our outstanding local guides, will lead a small group of tour participants on a moving study tour of the Italian Renaissance, from its birth and flowering in outlying Tuscany and Florence to its ultimate expressions in the great city of Rome. Through evening lectures and group discussions, followed by guided visits to a carefully selected sequence of buildings and museums, participants will experience first-hand the dynamics and fabulous achievements of this amazing period in human history.
