Florence in February

A group of Art pupils joined Italian students on a five-day trip to Florence over the February half-term. Added to the visits of the many fantastic galleries and museums, unexpected events such as the Calcio Storico, a historical football contest in Santa Croce square, and colourful procession through the town the following day, just heightened the variety of experience that this incredible city had to offer. Art pupils were treated to a full programme which offered the chance to study a wealth of exquisite sculptural works and fine examples of Medieval and Renaissance paintings, while the Italian students happily took part in the many activities their Italian lessons required.
