Program Overview

Program Description:
Large groups of people along the way have perpetuated the model: silent and anonymous monks, or people who have been the symbol of entire ages. Many women were less well known, but had strong personalities, such as Santa Chiara of Montefalco, Angela of Foligno, Angelina of Montegiove, Rita of Cascia, Colomba of Rieti. This course of Italian language and culture, whilst staying on topic as you visit the various cities, is also a way to improve the language skills of the students.

Umbria is the land of Saints. It is here that historical figures of great stature such as St. Benedict and St. Francis had their earthly experiences. They have left tangible signs of their passage in the architecture of the most famous cities, as well as in villages and in the more modest neighbourhoods. In silent places inhabited by the spirit, in harmony with the surrounding landscape, you will be able to admire works of art of great value that have for centuries been an accompaniment to a message of faith and devotion.
