Architectural Design One-Year Course (#9) – Daniella Ruiz

Week 9 Summary – This week started off with a visit from family in Cinque Terre! Throughout the week, I went to my architectural and medieval art history classes, had an art visit, and visited the Pitti Palace for this month’s art stage!

Sunday, June 25 | At 7 am we headed to the Santa Maria Novella Train Station. After an almost three-hour ride, we finally made it to Cinque Terre to meet up with my brother, Billy, and sister-in-law, Laura. We spent the whole day exploring Monterosso! We went swimming at the beach, took a hike, and ate great food!

Tuesday, June 27 | We woke up at 7 am to climb Giotto’s Bell Tower. The climb reminded me of Pisa! The views from the top were so cool! We got to see the façade up close! And we even got to see other people who climbed the Duomo from the Bell Tower!
