The day at a glance
Learn the ins and outs of traditional Middle Ages and Renaissance dance, song, and Commedia dell’Arte with the spirited musical troup I Giullari di Piazza. Students also spend time with our resident falconer and her raptors while learning about the traditions of Renaissance and Medieval falconry, and visit the historic Rosen House to see and learn about our extensive collection of Renaissance art and artifacts.
