The Venice Programme: Introduction

A Unique Opportunity

The Venice Programme provides Warwick BA and MA History of Art students with a unique opportunity to study art produced in Venice and her territories from circa 1100 until the present day. With courses taught by Warwick staff who are leading scholars in these areas, students experience the art of Venice first-hand and over an extended period by living and studying in this city over a whole term (subject to students obtaining the relevant travel permissions).

A Brief History

In 1967, the Department of History at Warwick University sent a small number of its third year BA students to Venice, for the duration of the Autumn term. Nine years later, in 1976, the art historians arrived, led by Professor Julian Gardner. Discover how Warwick's relationship with the city began more than 40 years ago.
