Destination Florence | BU Today


Ten lucky dogs who were enrolled last semester in CAS’s Core Curriculum class, Renaissance, Rediscovery, and Reformation, traveled to Florence, Italy, earlier this month, where they spent eight days visiting more than a dozen museums and attending a lecture. In the Medici Archive Project. The trip complemented their studies of Dante, Petrarch, Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and other figures of the Italian Renaissance. They also took a day trip to nearby Siena.
