This BreakAway has been designed around an exhibit by the same name created by the Palazzo Strozzi Foundation.

Destination: Rome, Florence, Pisa, Venice, Milan
Leaders: Nausser Jamali and Mika'il Petin
Cost: $2,950 ($1,950 when a $1,000 subsidy is applied)

This exhibition takes the visitor not only on a journey to the roots of Florentine power in Europe, but also explores the economic mechanisms which allowed the Florentines to dominate the world of trade and business. Florence was not only the cradle of Western culture, it was also the birthplace of the modern financial system. Utilizing the sections created for the exhibit, we will navigate the Italian landscape uncovering the complex relationships linking money to art.
