It’s Family Weekend here on the Syracuse campus, and Liz Evans is enjoying time with her parents in Florence. Last weekend, Liz and her parents, Joe and Lynn, visited Padova, along with the rest of SU Florence. Then they explored Venice on their own after the class trip.

The most notable site we saw was the Scrovegni Chapel. This was the private chapel of the Scrovegnis and the inside was completely decorated in frescoes by one of the most famous Florentine painters ever, Giotto. This chapel is considered one of his masterpiece works and was amazing to see in person and have it explained by Rocky [Ruggiero, field study instructor for SU Florence].
