"It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great wo/man is s/he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude."  A quote by Emerson, slightly updated.

April 18-21, 2018 - A CIYO "Roman Holiday" 5-days/4-nights treat - for CIYO Alumnae & Friends - in English

Join Dorian and the Italian CIYO Faculty: Myriam Ines Giangiacomo, Maria Schiavo, Silvia Gollini, Daniela Mattia and Pernette Masson, in Rome for an English-language CIYO holiday. 

Together we will focus on the Feminine in Rome's Art, Architecture, Rituals, Food, History, Fashion, Politics and Progress. Join with other CIYO alumnae and friends for a taste of Romans' love of a life lived fully. 

We are planning a number of optional activities to choose from during our stay, including an empathy walk along the Via Appia Antica also known as Rome's Queen of Roads, a visit to the Villa Borghese to learn more about the life and power of Paolina Borghese, stopping for tea in the Chiostro del Bramante museum cafe behind Piazza Navona, a guided session on the work of Artemisia Gentileschi, a Roman cooking class. And lots of gentle meandering and learning and playing together.

During our trip we will base ourselves at one of Rome's quieter boutique hotels, the Profumo Maison D'Hotes which is in a perfect pocket neighborhood next to the Colosseum.

If interested in this nurturing learning and travel adventure, email Dorian  to get on the mailing list for updates and further information. Benvenute!
