I am a university student studying art history in Japan. I am a university student studying art history in Japan and decided to study abroad in Florence, one of the centers of the Renaissance period.

日本で美術史を学ぶ大学生です。ルネサンス期の中心地の一つである、フィレンツェで美術を勉強したいと思い、留学を決意しました。1ヶ月の短期留学ですが、初めての海外でドキドキです。

Art History Summer Course (#2) – Arisa T

It has been two weeks since I have been in Italy. Every time I write a student report, I am amazed that another week has already passed. Every day is fresh and fun.

イタリアにして2週間が経ちました。学生レポートを書くたびにもう1週間が過ぎたのか、と驚きます。毎日が新鮮で楽しいです。
In the art history class, we sometimes walk around the city of Florence as well as churches and museums. The entire city is like a museum, dotted with historic buildings. This picture is of a hotel, which was originally used as a residence for aristocrats and is long and narrow with small windows like a fortress.

art historyの授業では、教会や美術館だけでなくフィレンツェの街を歩きながら行うこともあります。街全体が美術館のようで、歴史のある建物が点在しています。この写真はホテルの写真ですが、元々は貴族の住まいとして使われていたそうで、縦長で要塞のように小さな窓が付いています。

The exhibition at the Museum of Precious Stones, which we visited as a class, was also impressive. These are furnishings made from marble and precious stones such as lapis lazuli based on painted sketches, like inlay work (not exactly). (Strictly speaking, this is not the case.)
Since the colors are not mixed as in an underdrawing, they are expressed while retaining their vivid colors. Imagining the delicate work that requires a sense of taste in the selection of the precious stones and the way the shadows are applied, I am even more in awe of these furnishings.

また、授業で行った貴石博物館の展示は圧巻でした。描かれた下絵をもとに大理石やラピスラズリのような貴石を用いて、象嵌細工のように作られる調度品です。(厳密には違うそうです)。
下絵のように混色しないため、色鮮やかさを保ったまま表現されています。貴石の選び方や、影の付け方からセンスが問われる繊細な作業を想像すると、この調度品への畏敬の念がさらに湧いてきます。

Art History blog In the elective class, we took part in backmaking. I had not used a sewing machine since home economics class, so I was nervous, but after some light practice, I was able to watch the teacher’s demonstration and get started on my project, which was easy to understand and fun.

選択授業ではバックメイキングを行いました。ミシンは家庭科の授業以来だったので緊張しましたが、軽く練習をしてから先生の実演を見て制作に取りかかれたので、分かりやすく、楽しかったです。
Art History blog Here is the finished mini pouch. The pattern is not very clear, but I like it because I think it is also a taste.

できたミニポーチがこれです。よくわからない模様になりましたが、これも味だなと思い気に入っています。
Art History blog I had a day off from classes on Friday, so I went to Venice with a friend. The scenery of the city on the water was fantastic and I felt like I was in a movie.

金曜は授業が休みだったので、友人とヴェネツィアに行きました。水上都市の風景が幻想的で、まるで映画の中にいるようだと思いました。
Art History blog I was very impressed with the scenery of the city on the water. In Venice, I had the famous squid smelt pasta and bongole pasta. The seafood was as good as the rumors said it would be, and I enjoyed them to the fullest extent of my compliments.

ヴェネツィアでは名物のイカスミパスタとボンゴレパスタを食べました。シーフードが美味しいと言う噂通りで、褒め言葉の限りを尽くして堪能しました。
Art History blog My main attraction was the Paradolo of San Marco Temple, said to be made up of 526 pearls, 330 garnets, 320 emeralds, 225 sapphires, 183 amethysts, 75 rubies, 175 agates, 34 topazes, 16 red jade atoms, and 13 jasper stones. I spent a lot of time just looking at them, not only for their jewelry value, but also for their beautiful artistic design incorporating Byzantine and Gothic styles.

私の目当てはサン・マルコ寺院のパラドーロでした。526の真珠、330のガーネット、320のエメラルド、225のサファイヤ、183のアメジスト、75のルビー、175の瑪瑙、34のトパーズ、16の紅玉隨、13の碧玉でできているとされています。宝石的な価値だけでなく、ビザンティンやゴシックの様式を取り入れた美術的なデザインとしても美しく、眺めているだけで時間が過ぎていました。
Art History blog On May 18, I went to the Uffizi Gallery for the Notte europea dei Musei event, where I could enter for only one euro in the evening. This is a masterpiece by Simone Marti. This is Simone Martini’s Annunciation. The expression on the Virgin Mary’s face as she stoops at an angle and gazes quizzically at the angel is a must-see.

また、5月18日はNotte europea dei Museiというイベントにより、ウフィツィ美術館が夜から1ユーロで入れるということで見に行きました。3時間ほどの滞在時間では見切れないほど膨大な量の美術作品があり、どれも美術の教科書や参考図書に載ってあるような名作ばかりです。この作品はシモーネ・マルティーニの受胎告知です。斜めに身を引いて訝しげに天使を見つめる聖母マリアの表情は必見です。
Art History blog Then I ate bistecca, which I had longed for. At first I thought bistecca was like a cookie. I thought it was like a biscuit, but when I heard that it was steak, I didn’t have much of a craving for it. However, I invited my friend to try it because it was said to be a specialty, and it was so delicious that I thought the meat I had been eating might not be meat at all, and the quantity was not as large as I had heard.

This is my report on enjoying Italian gastronomy and art.

そして念願のビステッカを食べました。ビステッカのことを最初はビスケットみたいなものかな?と思っていましたが、ステーキと聞いてあんまり食指が動きませんでした。しかし、名物というので友達を誘って行ってみましたが、私の今まで食べていた肉は肉じゃなかったのかもと思うくらいに美味しく、量も聞いていたほど多くはなく、とてもいい経験になりました。

以上、イタリアの美食と美術を楽しむレポートです。
