Field Trip to Florence!

Last weekend a group of Umbra students went on an overnight field trip to Florence for their Survey of Italian Renaissance and Mannerist Art class. Professor Adrian Hoch led students on an extensive tour highlighting the city’s main museums and churches. Florence is known as the Renaissance Art capital of the world and this time Umbra students spared no stops. The trip included Santa Maria Novella, the Ufizzi Gallery, Santissima Annunziata, the Brancacci Chapel, Santo Spirito, the Bargello Museum, the Galleria del Accademia, San Marco, the Loggia del Lanzi, and Santa Croce. Of course everyone also had time for a sampling of Florence’s “edible art,” gelato – what’s your favorite flavor?
