Introducing the best of Medieval and Renaissance art and monuments in the beautiful northern Italian city of Verona. Art historian Susan Steer explores the treasures of this vibrant city.

Looped by the Adige River with a backdrop of green hills and snow-capped mountains, Verona is one of North Italy’s most beautiful cities. As well as its impressive Roman monuments, Verona boasts a medieval castle, now an art museum, monumental squares, Romanesque and Gothic churches, and picturesque palazzi still painted with vibrant frescoes. Although Verona is deservedly famous for its Roman heritage and as the setting of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedy, this seminar will instead concentrate on Verona’s abundance of Medieval and Renaissance art and monuments, like the tombs of its Scaliger rulers, the spectacular frescoes in gothic churches like Sant’Anastasia and San Fermo, and the Romanesque San Zeno with its unparalleled altarpiece by Andrea Mantegna.

Led by an expert on Italian Medieval and Renaissance art, Dr. Susan Steer, this interactive seminar will introduce Verona’s most important monuments and artworks dating from the period 1100-1600. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased knowledge of the art of northern Italy and a great desire to visit or return to this beautiful and still vibrant city.

This conversation is part of a series with Dr. Susan Steer. Sessions can also be joined independently and in order.

Excellent as always!

I can only say that I am doing almost all the Seminars that Dr Steer is offering. I have been to those places many times but it was wonderful to visit together with her

As always, Dr. Steer's presentation is very well done and although medieval and Renaissance art is still a little over my head, the more I take part and learn, the more it all makes sense and connections are made, both in this seminar and others. I look forward to more conversations with Dr. Steer.

We have been to Verona a few times and thought we knew the city but this webinar opened our eyes to many sites and art works we had missed. Can’t wait to go back to Verona to find these treasures.
