Italy Fall 2010

Landscape Architecture Italy Fall 2010

Castiglion Fiorentino

The 2010 Cal Poly Pomona Landscape Architecture Italy Program will conduct its eighteenth session during the Fall 2010 academic quarter. Participants in the 2010 Landscape Architecture Italy program will again live and study at the Santa Chiara Study Center in Castiglion Fiorentino about fifty miles southeast of Florence in the Tuscany region. The session is a great opportunity to visit one of the oldest and culturally accomplished cultures. The art, architecture, and landscapes of Italy are a remarkable blend of Greek, Roman, Medieval, Renaissance and contemporary expressions. In addition, the Italians continue to engage time-honored landscape applications that exemplify sustainable practices and alternatives.
The academic focus of the session will again be the region surrounding Castiglion Fiorentino. We will spend part of the semester learning about the environmental and social systems related to the community. With this comprehension, we will develop perceptual and environmental strategies for the design of the landscape surrounding the city.
Budget for the 2010 Session*
