ART HISTORY PROGRAMS IN SICILY
2016 - 2017

art history courses

Italy "owns" more than 70% of artistic heritage in the world, according to UNESCO. Sicily is the place where this long and beautiful art history tradition started more than 2.500 years ago.

As Wolfgang J. Goethe wrote in 1786: "Without Sicily, Italy cannot be fully understood. It is here one finds the key to all things". The Greek theatres along its coasts, the temples on its hills, the Carthaginian and Roman mosaiques of its villas are witness and ancestors of Italy's huge art heritage. Sicily has served as a meeting place for three continents, each of which has contributed to Sicily's unique history, art and culture heritage. There are few other places which have been impacted by as great a number of civilizations: the Sicani, the Sicilian, the Greeks, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Arabs, the Normans, the Spaniards. All of them influenced the vibrant Sicilian culture. Our study abroad programs reflect Sicily's magnificently rich 2500 years of art and culture.

For more than 2500 years, Sicily has shared its spirit with travellers from many lands. Situated in the center of the Mediterranean, Sicily has served as a meeting place for three continents, each of which has contributed to Sicily's unique history and culture. There are few other places which have been impacted by as great a number of civilizations: the Sicani, the Sicilian, the Greeks, the Carthaginians, the Romans, the Byzantines, the Arabs, the Normans, the Spaniards - all influenced the vibrant Sicilian culture. Our study abroad programs reflect Sicily's magnificently rich 2500 years of knowledge, poetry, art and traditions.

Every major European royal dynasty that wanted to have power in Europe and over the Mediterranean Sea "had" to own Sicily. And along the last almost 3.000 years of history, every major Mediterranean power has left its mark on Sicily! Important artistic, architectural, and cultural remains are visible in virtually every town of this island in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea and at virtually every corner.

Take a virtual tour of Sicily and learn more about the history, the monuments and the views of our region.

Sicily has an amazing heritage in history, art and art history, and it is here where the roots of the whole Italian culture can be found.

Since 1992, we have passionately dedicated ourselves to promoting our Sicilian heritage and culture along with the study of the Italian language. Since then, we strive to offer opportunities for learners of Italian language to also become learners of the Italian culture and Italian life.

A language is not the result of a set of grammar rules. A language is the result of a culture and its traditions, its history, its life style and its places. If want a fuller cultural experience in Sicily, and not just be a tourist but be a traveller, you can combine an
Italian language course in group or Italian private lessons with:
