Images of Italy

Come take in the breathtaking views of Italy in Musselman Library's Browsing Room! This semester's featured "Hidden Talents" exhibit includes striking photographs of a sojourn in Italy by Dan DeNicola, professor of philosophy.

When DeNicola first traveled to Italy in 2006, he found "a photographer's dream." In both his first trip to Tuscany and Umbria and his second to Venice, the Dolomites, the "Northern Arc," and Lake Como, he "loved the diverse landscapes with marvelous colors and wondrous light."

Colorful and vibrant, the exhibit includes images of water taxis and gondolas, richly painted homes and climbing wisteria, and gorgeous vistas. When asked why he selected these particular photographs, DeNicola explains that these pictures "invite the viewer to enter into the landscape, to become the subject, to stay awhile, to take an Italian sabbatical."

How can one refuse? Come take your sabbatical in the library's main floor browsing room. The exhibit will be on display through the summer.
