“I already knew a lot about the subject I was going to be studying, but having a chance to immerse myself in the culture of Italy was an entirely different experience. It helped me put myself in the artists’ shoes and as we traveled from one city to another, I was able to see how geography influenced regional differences.”KayLee Carter
