Abstract: A successful study tour to Venice organised this year by the University of Malta aimed to familiarise students of architecture and Baroque studies with the unique architectural and urban space qualities of Venice - seen in the splendid and colourful architecture mirrored in the waters of the Grand Canal, in the concentration of magnificent churches and palaces expressing the spirit of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque Europe. The objective of another study tour to Florence, as outlined by Professor Denis De Lucca, Head of Department, was to familiarize architecture students with the main representative buildings of Medieval and Renaissance Florence, as reflected in a series of magnificent churches and palaces, in the beautiful works of art contained in them and in a rich urban texture mirroring the social and political changes that rook place in Florence since its foundation as a Roman city built by Julius Caesar to accommodate veterans of his Gallic wars.
Description: This document contains information regarding another study tour to Noto in Sicily.
