BUONGIORNO! While I could surely write a book on my journey in Florence, I’ll only leave you with a few brief excerpts of my thoughts. As I sit and reflect on my unexpected landing in Bologna, plastic helicopters that soared to the top of Brunelleschi’s dome, Causimo Medici’s unforgettable rule and how he won his land back over the Albitzi’s, the competition of the sculpture of the Sacrificial Isaac between Lorenzo and Filipo, and the David by Donatello and Michaelangelo, I think – What if I could have filmed myself during my journey the entire trip – without a cast – just me? Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was technology to perform such a service?

It sounds futuristic – but Filipo Brunelleschi made an egg stand upright. Maybe I’ll have to cook a few omelets or perhaps try to sell water to a well. I would fulfill my hunger and build my confidence. How is that for igniting my brain power?Cenetra Post


My Taxi Ride: My introduction to Florence was one to remember. Have you ever seen a taxi cab fly through the streets of New York? Well I’ve felt them go fast, but I’ve never seen a taxi fly until I’ve been in a taxi in Florence. That was my introduction to Florence. It was nearly a flying car in a rush to get me to the one place where I would dwell after a long day of exploring the streets of Florence.

Hotel Arrival: After leaving the taxi, I looked both ways down a one way street before I decided to cross and walk into my hotel. I was greeted by the front desk staff – who happily gave me my key after I explained to her that I was there with the “The Georgetown Group”. Just before I grabbed my bags, I was greeted by 3 guys, one I had taken several classes with, one I saw a few times in one class, and another I hadn’t met before. They were all nice and greeted me with a hello before I grabbed my bags and walked to the room.

My Room: – When I got to my room, I realized I’d be sharing it with 2 girls I barely knew, there were three twin beds, three sitting spaces, a really nice tub, and space to plug in my Ipod.  I had only seen the girls around campus and taken a few classes with them, but I didn’t know them. We did however, become very well acquainted quickly and understood that we were on a mission. That night, we were concerned about our orientation. We didn’t know what to expect. We were ready to work and deliver what our Professor was expecting of us.

WineRistorante Accademia:
 Our Introduction to Italian dining with an American twist. While we ate pasta and drank wine, we were given an orientation which helped shaped our minds into understand our purpose for being in Florence. We were given directions on where to go the next day to meet up for class. We were immersed in the Italian culture.

The Exploration:  We were happy to know that our Professor was concerned about our well being. She understood that the experience in Italy should be one to remember and that it had to encompass a Socratic style of learning to keep us attentive and focused on the subject. We traveled back in time to the Renaissance (Brunelleschi’s dome was great for this). We were given the best Professor to help us understand how the Renaissance shaped history in Art, Architecture, Management styles, Engineering, and History (Professor Mercedez Carrera ( the best at Gonzaga Florence), and taught us how this all relates to the Jesuit tradition of Georgetown University and merged it with Modern Technology (Professor Cindy Bonfini herself).

In just 7 days, I’ve began to look at art and architecture from a different perspective and I’ll never view a competition the way I did before I studied Filipo Brunelleschi.
