**This program will not be offered in Summer 2019, but is tentatively scheduled for Summer 2020.

Italy has made a profound contribution to Western civilization, producing some of the world's greatest thinkers, writers, politicians, saints, and artists.  Impressive traces of their lives and works can still be seen today, in Italy's great architecture and enchanting countryside.  Learn more about one of Europe's oldest cities - Rome - by joining the UW Classics in Italy program!  You’ll spend three weeks with a group of UW-Madison students, led by a UW-Madison Professor.  You’ll spend time in several Italian cities, including Rome, Urbino, Pescasseroli and Castellammare di Stabia.  Don’t miss this exciting chance to take a walk through history with other Madison students!

The summer 2018 program was led by Professor Marc Kleijwegt from the Department of History.
