July 12 – August 15, 2015


Castelvecchio Calvisio, located in central Italy’s mountainous Abruzzo region, presents evidence of human habitation dating back to the sixth century BCE (an Italic necropolis) and later to Imperial Rome. The Borgo Abruzzo project provides students with a practical "laboratory" in which to develop and test methodologies, diagnostic procedures and conservation techniques through hands-on work on conservation of historic urban buildings. The research carried out in this phase will focus on better understanding the town’s architectural history through photographic and drawn surveys recorded in a customized database. These records will then form the basis for proposals for redevelopment of the town center. For more information visit the field school website.

Connecticut College will award each student 8 semester credit units (12 quarter units). Tuition includes credit units, and room and board.
