In cooperation with the field work office, 28 students from ten departments and six faculty members from the art, history, and Italian departments traveled in Italy during a two week "Renaissance Vacation." Received by the United States ambassador, G. Frederick Reinhardt, at his home, Villa Taverna, in Rome, the group also visited Florence, Perugia, Assisi and Sienna.  Members of the History, Art Italian faculties and student participates worked out the itinerary in cooperation with the Vassar Field Work Office.  The students did not receive credit, as the tour was intended to extend and augment classroom experience.
