The Association of American College and University Programs in Italy (AACUPI), in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the Istituti Italiani di Cultura (IIC), has organized the second edition of “Back from Italy”, an exhibition and panel discussion featuring work by young architecture students who have recently spent a semester in Italy. The University of Georgia’s Cortona Studies Abroad Program is one of the fifteen programs participating in the exhibition, presenting work by our Summer 2018 Landscape Architecture and Interior Design students.
AACUPI estimates the number of American students studying architecture in Italy at about six thousand every year. This exhibition, which has the theme “Building within the dimension of history”, explores the extent and significance of the cultural impact that studying in Italy has upon the work of these young architects.
The exhibition opened at the Embassy on Friday, March 29, and will later travel to Miami, Florida for display at the Istituto di Cultura Italiana.
