For the first time, the JCU art studio at Largo dei Fiorentini have been transformed into a gallery hosting artists from outside the institution. On November 7, 2013, a photography exhibition entitled “Undisturbed,” by the young Milan-based photographer Andrea Ruggeri, inaugurated a new series of events. Ruggeri shows selections from his rich archive of color work in travel, fashion, and reportage, as well as black and white photos of a more personal and contemplative nature. In the second event, on November 14th, the Rome-based painter Georgina Spengler speaks to students about her work, discussing in particular the subject of inner necessity and artistic creation.

The Fiorentini facilities, home of the JCU Studio Art program, include an iMac computer lab where classes are held in graphic design, film and digital photography, video, and photojournalism; other rooms are dedicated to drawing, oil and fresco painting, and medieval painting techniques. The new series of exhibitions and lectures, planned and directed by JCU art professors William Pettit and Serafino Amato, will take place there twice a semester, and will allow JCU students to engage in contemporary art issues directly with local artists and members of the wider community.
