Waterbury Campus
MPR 113-119

Travel by photos to the marble quarries of Massa and Carrara, Italy. Tour the working sculpture studios at the foot of Italy’s marble mountains in Pietrasanta. Discover why marble – in its many stages of formation – has been so important to Mediterranean artists from the ancient Etruscans to artists of today. See how Roman stonework and sculpture differs from ancient Greek sculpture and what Renaissance artists did with this amazing material.

OLLI member and photographer, Tom Kmetzo, has lived and taught in Rome and has made many trips back over the past 40 years.
