A Tuscan Retreat for Emerging Writers
In this Tuscan retreat for undergraduates, students work intensively to generate new writing while finding literary inspiration in the enchanting, historically rich setting of Florence and Villa La Pietra. The program features nightly readings and lectures on writing and the writer’s life. On weekends, students have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of their literary predecessors: they might walk along the Arno River, view the sunset from Piazzale Michelangelo, or visit Tuscan gardens and vineyards. Classes and events are held at Villa La Pietra (pictured). Bequeathed to NYU in 1994 by Sir Harold Acton, the Florentine campus consists of 5 historic villas and 57 acres of gardens and olive groves.
