This 12-day seminar introduces students to the history and culture of the Eternal City, with a focus on the built environment. Notre Dame faculty in a range of fields, from art history and architecture to anthropology, will provide students with an immersive experience and guide students in their exploration of the city. Students have the opportunity to visit many of Italy’s most revered cultural treasures and to participate in a rich cultural and intellectual exchange. The Global Gateway on Via Ostilia serves as the home for lectures and discussions, while Rome itself, with its rich assortment of monuments, museums and densely-textured, storied neighborhoods serves as the students’ true classroom.
