AHA: Macerata, Italy Summer Program (Summer Art Studio)
The AHA Center is located in a 17th century Palazza, within the medieval city walls of the university hill town of Macerata, just around the corner from Macerata’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The center offers wireless access and a modest computer lab for students, a spacious studio and frescoed classrooms, as well as a small lending and reference library across from the Piazzo Vittorio Vineto, where part of the weekly market is held. Surrounded by soaring medieval towers and Gothic architecture, Macerata and the Marche region offer countless opportunities to serve as your classroom, including excursions to the Arena Sferisterio, the Teatro “Lauro Rossi”, tours through the Roman ruins in Urbs Salvia, a visit to the 12th Century Abbazia di Chiaravalle di Fiastra, and the markets and beaches of Civitanova.
Surrounded by Romanesque, Renaissance, and Baroque architecture on a hilltop between the Chienti and Potenza rivers, Macerata is located in central Italy, a short drive from the Adriatic coast. The Art Studio program is designed for art majors or minors or for students who have completed previous Art course work. Courses are held in a 17th century Palazzo Ricci in the center of the medieval walled city, perched atop the university hill town of Macerata. Every other year, students will attend the Venice Biennale, one of the most influential cultural institutions in the world, as part of their course work. In addition, students will explore Macerata and the surrounding Marche region for historic and modern inspirations. The studio and classrooms in the AHA Macerata Center are adorned with frescoes and unique architectural details accompanied by the modern comforts of wi-fi. The contemporary art collection of the Pinacoteca di Arte Italiana di Palazzo Ricci is located in the same Palazzo as the AHA Center with a separate location just around the corner, providing additional insight and inspiration. Macerata is only 30 minutes by bus or train to the Adriatic coast, where students can relax under the Italian summer sun at the beaches of Civitanova.
