Warwick in Venice – the University of Warwick’s oldest global connection

Warwick has had a connection with Venice since 1967, when a group of History students and staff spent a term studying the Renaissance in this beautiful, historic city.

Now every September, around 80 students of History, History of Art (including modern art), and Renaissance Studies come for ‘The Venice Term’ (more than 100 students attended in September 2016). They spend three months in the city and study its history, buildings and works of art — a unique experience.

Warwick has a permanent base in Venice, the Palazzo Pesaro Papafava in the Cannaregio district, which also hosts academic conferences, workshops and vacation schools. Venice is a unique location to consider global questions of migration; sustainability; manufacturing (e.g. glass), engineering (e.g. water management) and trade; creative cities; heritage policies; and intercultural exchange.

After so many years, Warwick plays a full part in Venetian life:
