Europe in the Middle Ages and Beyond (HIST216) This unit ventures deep into the heart of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance as we visit key sites across Rome and northern Italy. We will spend the first week at ACU’s Rome centre, tracing Roman history from the emergence of ‘Christian’ Rome in the fourth century, through Rome’s pivotal medieval role as a pilgrimage centre, to the architecture and art that marked Rome during the time of the powerful Renaissance Popes. In our second week, we will stay in Florence. We will also be doing day trips to Assisi, Sermoneta, Pisa and Siena from Rome and Florence.
Screen Studies (PERF215) In this unit you will investigate, analyse and report on important films shot in Rome. We will visit famous locations including; the Colosseum, the Vatican and the Roman Forum. A large part of this unit is watching the films and visiting the film locations. We will be watching and analysing films such as Ridley Scott’s Gladiator and Kubrick’s Spartacus, De Sica’s Bicycle Thieves and Wyler’s Roman Holiday, as well as visiting major locations where these have been shot including the Cinecitta film studios.
