venice.jpgWarwick in Venice - Celebrating 40 years of the Venice term

Professor Michael Mallett, describes the origins and development of the Venice Programme, while current students write about their own Venice experience.

Warwick’s Venice Programme is a unique initiative by a British university. For around 40 years, undergraduate and postgraduate students studying History and History of Art have had the opportunity to spend a full autumn term in Venice, incorporating site visits and study trips, backed up by work with Warwick staff at the University’s Venetian base – now the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava.
