Curated by Julia Griner and Letizia La Rosa, the exhibition features the work of 15 NYU students, taken while they were studying in Florence, Italy, through NYU’s Study Abroad program. The photographs capture a romanticized view of Italy by students who spent anywhere from three months to a year studying there. They portray individual experiences and the beauty of the landscape and its people.
