2012 Regina Brown Undergraduate Student Fellowship

One of the three Regina Brown undergraduate student fellowships for 2012 was awarded to KCAI senior Emily Connell.  Emily will use the Regina Brown to spend a month traveling from northern to southern Italy.  She is planning to visit Milan, Venice, Bolgue, Florence, Rome, Naples, Palermo Sicily, and Trapani Sicily.  There are many specific sights that Emily is planning to see, such as the preserved body of Saint Catherine in Bolgue and the ceramic reliefs by Della Robbia in Florence.   Emily is planning to end her trip in Trapini where she will watch the procession that takes place on Good Friday and lasts until Holy Saturday.  It is one of the oldest processions, dating back to the 16th and 17th century.    Emily will also be visiting  La Meridiana, an international school of ceramics in Tuscany.
