While living in Italy, and learning about and experiencing local culture first-hand, this class will examine the role of the arts and culture (including food) in Italian life. From an arts administration perspective, we will explore funding and management of Italian arts and cultural organizations with a comparison to the funding and management of such organizations in the United States. We’ll discuss the government’s role in funding for such organizations in both countries. We will visit the ‘original’ Cabinet of Curiosity and learn about the history of museums. Various museum visits will provide a closer look at some of the world’s most renowned art works and scientific discoveries that shaped history. Creative activities and assignments will encourage further exploration with art forms as well.
