Spoleto Study Abroad
LITA Summer Programs
Spoleto, one of the most beautiful medieval towns in central Italy, is where a collaborative community of artists and scholars gather each year to explore the rich, cultural heritage of Italy while fostering artistic, intellectual and personal growth. The program provides students with a deep immersion in an area of artistic interest. Students ages 15-19 can explore vocal music, instrumental music, visual arts, photography, drama and creative writing — creating a challenging and innovative experience.
LITA brings groups of students in grades 9 – 11, with a minimum of two years of Spanish study, together from all over the U.S. Students depart from either New York or Boston with a group of 10 to 14 students and two experienced leaders. The five-week program includes:
• Three-day backcountry trek in the Pyrenees in Northern Spain or the Sierra Nevada in Southern Spain
