Italy as we know it has been a popular travel destination for centuries. In fact, many important literary, historical, and artistic figures extended their study abroad periods, family vacations, or honeymoons to make of Italy their permanent home. The legacy of these ex-patriots lives on in the streets and public structures throughout the country named in their honour. The “English” Italy provides students with an introduction to some of these figures, specifically from Great Britain or the larger Anglo-Saxon world. Organized in three modules, students will examine three specific episodes in the history of in ex-pats in Italy: The English Romantics, The Florentine Academy, and the American Modernists. Their classroom learning will be complemented by field trips and museum visits.
