Among their many activities, participants will visit the archaeological sites of Torcello, the Contemporary Art Exhibition of La Biennale, the island of Giudecca, some of the city's most interesting churches and they will attend a multidisciplinary workshop on the theme of travel(s).
Enriching the program are some cultural and extracurricular activities, such as a dragon boat tour along the canals of Venice and a social dinner for students and faculty.
