Up-to-date report from one of our students!
Course: Interior Design
Program: One Year Course
Period: Sep. 3, 2018 - Apr. 26, 2019
One of my classmates working for a residential bathroom. Our professor constantly looks around our working and gives us feedbacks. He only speaks Italian but he is very nice and knowledgeable about Italian design. Also, you do not need to worry about language because English or Japanese translator attends at a class.
My other classmates working on each project. One’s project is about renovate a house in Italian style. Another one’s project is about designing a cafe with a book store. They use different building and designing tools but sometimes share skills and help each other.
On Friday, our Art Visit class had a historical walk. We visited some castles, houses, and churches which is related to the Medici family or historically influenced by the society of Medieval era around 1444.
We started with the palace of the Medici Riccardi Family. The house is opened as a museum and sometimes for exhibitions and events. In the center, there is a courtyard, and the Medici family’s statues and relief decorations on the walls are displayed.
This is the Baptistery of St. John, which is very featured building in Firenze.
The front facade was not so decorative as current look in the past. At first, the facade was more simple but by the time and society’s changing, it gradually got more color and relief.
This is called Condotta which is now a Museum inside, it used to be a church. A fun fact, the three arches in the picture are opened in the past. Also, it used to have just one story but added two more stories after.
We visited Piazza Della Signoria and walk around the Uffizi gallery. The Piazza Della Signoria was said to be built in 1299 and used to be a stronghold, but now it is a political and historical point of the city Firenze. Also, the Uffizi gallery is close to this political building that makes it a focus place for tourists and locals.
