In 2006 I spent the summer in a small town in Italy called Castiglion Fiorentino as part of my undergraduate architecture program. A studio of us spent the semester at the Santa Chiara Study Center, using it as a base for exploration and discovery throughout Italy. It was a fantastic summer. Upon arriving back in the US, I created a music video based off my experiences and a song written and sung by Vanessa Peters (who had also once attended the program and was at that time living there).
I’ll be heading back to Castiglion Fiorentino in a few weeks. I’m very excited.
