During Fall 2019, students in Elon University’s Integrative Core Capstone have had the opportunity to study the topic of Love through the art in the Uffizi Gallery, the writings of Dante and Petrarch, a performance of La Traviata, and field observations throughout the city.

The semester concluded with presentations of multidisciplinary work on religious love, romantic love, familial love, obsessive love, the science of love, and many other aspects of love of individual interest to each student. What better place to undertake such a study than Firenze, a city where everything from locks on the Ponte Vecchio to Botticelli’s Birth of Venus surrounds us with images of love? Janet Warman Elon Visiting Faculty AEF Fall Semester 2019.
The final projects were presented at Teatro del Sale on Thursday, December 5: it was a pleasant opportunity of sharing knowledge, experiences and good food together with the students and the AEF Faculty.
Special thanks to Dr. Janet Warman, who wonderfully lead the group in this Italian Love and Lifestyle experience and to the students who enthusiastically immersed into our culture:
