This unique five week publishing program constitutes a full term of interdisciplinary, cross-cultural study with total immersion in the local cultures of the eastern Sicilian coast and Florence. Students and program leaders travel together as a community of scholars in Sicily seven days a week for two full weeks to collect and research travel photography and writing. Participants return to Florence for a three week academic session to refine the research that will be used to create a travel guide based on cultural exploration through the five senses. By the end of the academic and field experience, students will produce a book which will be published by Ingorda-Florence Campus, the University Press of PALAZZI - Florence Association for International Education.

By the end of the study-abroad term, students should have a comprehensive understanding of the geo-politics, history, religions, and cultures including art and literature of the areas visited. Students will have gained new insights into their own worldview and personal identity.
