The weekly excursions are an integral component of the JSS in Civita experience. Participants of all three programs join together on Thursdays to explore Italy’s vast art treasuries as part of an integrated comprehensive experience of art and life that exists nowhere else. The sheer quality and quantity of it dwarfs all that comprises the Western world’s museums combined. These excursions for the passionate sightseer nourish a lifetime *.
*Note: JSS in Civita does not offer “guided” tours out of conviction. We feel that looking and experiencing art should be immediate rather than mediated – it should be explored in the language of its creation. To maximize one’s experience we urge participants to draw and transcribe from the great masterworks as a way of exploring their manifold qualities, and if not on your own then with a likeminded companion. Orientations on the evening before scheduled excursions are provided as are maps and suggested destinations.
