Yesterday our students from the Siena School for Liberal Arts and the Siena Art Institute took a trip to Umbria. They explored the historic city of Perugia and also stopped by the giant lake Trasimeno, enjoying beautiful blue skies!
Exploring the Tempo Zulu stones with Bernardo Giorgi, we also had the chance to meet master stone-carver Emilio Frati!
We hope you can join us this evening at 6pm for an artist’s talk with Madhya Leghari, current artist-in-residence at the Siena Art Institute! Free and open to the public, presentation in English. See you there! 🙂
Looking at the “Walk of Destiny” projects, kicking off our Intro Unit with students from the Siena School for Liberal Arts and the Siena Art Institute.
Painting Professor Franca Marini led our visit to the City Archives, seeing the important Biccherne tablets and other highlights of the collection. We also were able to enjoy the view from the archives balony overlooking Piazza del Campo, and other spots in the neighborhood like the Contrada of the Civetta.
