DATES: May 13—June 6, 2018                           TAUGHT BY: Mark Cosdon

An interdisciplinary exploration of southern Italy, an immensely beautiful, contentious, historically rich, and fertile region.  Known as Magna Graecia by ancient Greek colonists and il Mezzogiorno by  contemporary Italians, southern Italy is a land of contrasts.  The   stunning countryside and urban centers reveal the legacy of many great civilizations—Greeks and Romans, Normans, Angevins, and Bourbons. Our course’s study includes extended study in Rome,    Naples, Capri, Pompeii, Lecce, Paestum, Otranto, Vatican City, and Alberobello.  Four credits will be earned upon successful completion.
