A 5 week Tuesday evening course starting on 4 November 2014, at Selwyn Community Education, East Auckland.

Cristina Capri leads an armchair tour of some of Italy's most recognizable architecture from the Colosseum in Rome to the medieval castles of northern Italy, and the splendour of Renaissance churches like the Duomo in Florence. Along the way, she offers fascinating insights into how these buildings, and Italian cities in general, evolved to reflect their historical context.

Follow Italian architect, Cristina, for a fascinating guide to the evolution of Italian architecture and the influences that shaped the development of urban areas. In Rome, explore the typical house, the Colosseum, and the aqueduct that still provides water 2000 years after its completion; tour the medieval castles and courts in the north of Italy; learn how the middle class re-shaped the medieval town and patronised the arts; study the Baroque style in Rome, the work of Bernini and Borromini, the churches and fountains; and visit the great buildings of the Industrial Age, such as the Mole Antonelliana in Turin, and the Vittorio Emanuele II gallery in Milan.

Italian-born Cristina Piva Capri holds a Masters degree in Architecture from Venice, where she developed a special interest in history, and worked as an assistant on the conservation of historical villages in the Venetian district. In New Zealand, Cristina works as an interior architect, and tutors in Interior Design, Art and Architecture, and Italian Language and Culture.
