Calandra is also involved in organizing Queens College Summer study programs to the University of Perugia. Students can study Italian language and culture at Perugia’s university, located in one of the most beautiful medieval cities in Italy. Perugia, Umbria’s capital, is located halfway between Rome and Florence and close to Siena, Assisi, and Cortona. This program is offered in collaboration with the Department of European Languages and Literatures. For more information about this for-credit program, please contact Program Coordinator Olivia Tursi:
