Our students study drawing, the history of art, and European theatre. The SMU-in-Italy program was founded in 1985 and has introduced over five hundred students from SMU and other universities to Italy. The 2005 SMU-in-Italy program is based in Orvieto, a beautiful, medieval hill town in Umbria. Excursions by train and bus are planned to the spectacular ruins of the ancient Roman harbor city of Ostia Antica, to the splendidly preserved late medieval city of Siena and the thrilling early Renaissance city of Florence, both in Tuscany, and to a broad range of important monuments in the magnificent city of Rome. In addition, there will be an optional weekend trip to Venice. ........
