Piazza IV Novembre

The Museum Practicum students Emma Walsh and Mia Herring-Sampong have been working hard all semester helping our neighbor, the Cathedral Museum, located in the courtyard in front of Umbra. They have prepared an entertaining and fun theme-based tour where you will learn about the fascinating collection of relics, hear tales of the saints, and discover new things about Perugia. Meet your guides in the Umbra courtyard.
Oh Madonna: A Close Look at Different Representations of the Virgin Mary (Mia Herring-Sampong)
On the guided tour, I will be identifying different modes of representing both the Enthroned Madonna and the Madonna and Child. We will think about how Mary’s rendering changes our perspective of her and her identity as a mother and as a woman.
