Cortona celebrates the University of Georgia’s fiftieth year in the city with events on Saturday, June 8, 2019.
The day begins with a culminating ceremony at Centro Convengi Sant’Agostino at 10 AM.
Following the ceremony, the latest in the continuous series of UGA Cortona group photographs will be taken in Piazza della Repubblica.
A ribbon cutting inauguration of the Baci from Cortona exhibition is next, in Cortona’s Parterre. This collaboration between UGA Cortona and Cortona on the Move showcases fifty years of historic photographs shared by alumni, faculty, and friends. This event includes a tribute to UGA Cortona’s founder, Professor John D. Kehoe.
All are invited to attend Giostra dell’Archidado events taking place on Saturday and Sunday. These historic recreations include traditional music and flag-throwing, and culminate in a crossbow marksmanship tournament between representatives from Cortona’s historic quarters.
