as crazy as this sounds, part of our curriculum here includes georgetown sponsored trips with our professors throughout italy. this past friday and saturday we went on our first art history trip to the towns of arezzo and urbino, in toscany and umbria respectively. over the course of 48 hours we were utterly inundated with art, and it was so much fun! wandering from chapel to church, we got the chance to explore traditional italian small towns and casually walk by places such as the birth place of petrarch. our main focus was the fresco work of the italian artist piero della francesca, but we also toured the ducal palace of urbino which in terms of scale was absolutely ginormous.
