Through a diversity of course offerings, you also study European and American cultures in various disciplines.Any two courses taken in the Venice program count as two semester-long courses (4 credits each) of degree credit.The National Archaeological Museum of Venice, situated in the Procuratie Nuove, can be legitimately defined as the heir of the ancient Public Statuary of the Most Serene Republic of Venice, the founding nucleus of the collection partially rearranged in the Vestibule of the National Library of St. The Archaeological Museum boasts an extraordinary collection of Roman and Greek sculptures, as well a large number of ancient coins, marvellous gems and cameos, bronze artefacts, pottery, Egyptian and Assyrian-Babylonian antiques and prestigious findings from the Late Antiquity period.The National Archaeological Museum of Venice has its most remote roots in the establishment of the Public Statuary of the Most Serene Republic of Venice, set up in the late 16th century thanks to the donations made by Domenico and Giovanni Grimani.The second room of the museum is formed by an aisle leading to the rooms which house a collection of Greek statues.The display cases aligned along the walls host a restricted selection of the very rich numismatic collection of the museum (almost 9000 pieces), with coins dating back to a broad time span ranging from the Greek age to the Byzantine period (some are undergoing renovations).
Boarding is always a bit confusing as I stand around unsure of when to board.
This collaborative, multidisciplinary program brings together two prestigious universities to deepen your understanding of Venice—a city with a rich history and an environment unlike any other.
You experience its diverse culture, art, and history through workshops, excursions, and field trips, as well as participation in the local community.
Originally situated in the Antechamber of the Libreria di San Marco (St.
Mark Library), current Vestibule of the National Library, the Statuary has been one of the first public museums on ancient art in Europe and for centuries it served as a renowned and highly visited cultural point of reference. More recently, in 1997, two walls of the Public Statuary inside the Vestibule of the National Library have been renovated.
