This program is not only for architects but also others interested in a deep dive into architectural preservation, art history, and local culture in several ancient but vital Etruscan hill towns. Using Civita as the base camp, with overnight trips to key locations with historic hotels, participants will explore important preservation work and the protection of cultural treasures in hill towns such as Assisi, Perugia, Tarquinia, Tuscania, Orvieto, Pienza, Cortona and Siena, in addition to Civita. For more information, the new catalog will be issued soon, but is substantially the same program and itinerary as in the October 2021 program book, and you can download that Program Summary book here.
