Jackie Horn (History & Political Science, 2015) and John Case (History & Political Science, 2015) are studying Italian this semester in Florence, Italy. It is all Italian all the time in a small class made up of three Guatemalans, four Americans, a Colombian, and four Catholic priests, one from India and the others from the Philippines. They say their teachers are great and that they are learning a lot of Italian as well as a lot about countries other than Italy from their classmates.
John, learning at the feet of the dark lord.
In case you haven't had a chance to visit Florence, the sculpture below
is the "Rape of the Sabine Women" by the Renaissance artist, Giambologna
(the sculpture in the right background, also by Giambologna, is called
"Hercules Fighting the Centaur Nessus").
