Greetings all!

Through my affiliation with Kent State, I have been blessed with the opportunity to return to Italy to study in my area of expertise for 5 weeks, but I need your help to make it work!  I will be researching several works, but most notably I will focus on the fresco cycle of the life of St. Peter in the Brancacci Chapel.  My goal is to better understand how these paintings served as a visual sermon to church goers in the 1400s.  I hope to be able to share this research in both the academic and religious realms.

Given that finances are rough, this trip is only possible through scholarships and generous donations I have received that cover the entire cost of getting me there, with a roof over my head, into the churches, museums, and archives I need, and home again.  I am missing funds for everyday living expenses, food, calls to home, etc.

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!!  Even a few dollars will go a long way.  If you cannot help, I understand and ask that you share my link with others instead.

Any contribution over $10 will receive a postcard from Italy - your choice of from Florence, Rome, or Vatican City! (Please make sure I have your address.)  Any contribution of $35 or more would also earn you a souvenir from Italy.  (Though I can take requests, there are no guarantees.)

Also, I am available for lectures and discussions regarding the art I study and its role in Renaissance Italy culture.  Contact me for details.

This visit lasts from May 29 to July 5.

Thank you for reading and grazie!
