Final Week of Italian Design Workshop

Week Three!!!

Field Trips

As the final week comes to a close with a celebration dinner on the hillsides of Firenze we look back at a great final week.

The week began with studio time and the group beginning the final steps in their model  building, acquiring supplies, final sketches, and for some realizing that they wanted to go another direction!!! So studio time became very valuable and quiet this week as headphones were donned and imaginations took flight.

The studio time was interrupted with two amazing field trips. One to Marino Marini Museo to see a Gio Ponti decorative ceramics exhibition as well as a modern art exhibit. We were guided through the exhibition and given rare insight to the great architect Gio Ponti as many of the letters he wrote were translated for us. What an amazing treat to gain an understanding like this.

The second trip was to EDRA headquarters in Pontedera. We enjoyed a nice train trip out of the city and were treated to a special guided tour of their design showroom and then a behind the scenes Museo as well! The group was allowed to climb, jump, and play on almost everything! Nicolla the founder’s grandson led the way and demonstrated how well their pieces are constructed. Lots of laughter and oohs and aahs as we saw what their creations are capable of withstanding all with being beautiful works of art!

The trip to Pontedera afforded the group an afternoon stop off in Pisa on the way home to catch some sights and enjoy another aspect of Tuscany.

As the week drew to an end the work went into overdrive and the presentations and projects were amazing! Four different perspectives, four different looks, four different styles of presentations – it was a great way to end the week. Fabio Leoncini came back to see how Ferragamo was interpreted and was very pleased at the projects!

After the long week of work the Design group refreshed and climbed the hillside via car and watched the Commedia group perform an incredible collection of monologues and performances in a lovely Tuscan courtyard overlooking Florence. As the performance concluded the sun was setting over the city and we were treated to a very local meal hidden away on a path that seemed undiscovered. Laughter, smiles and stories of their adventures were shared as they prepared to depart and leave their new found friends.

Twenty Years From Now…

One of Go Inspired’s mottos is summed up perfectly by Mark Twain. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”.

At Go Inspired, we recognize how hard it can be to do the things you really want to do when you have a job, school, family, etc. But we know how important it is to grow and gain new experiences. This summer, Go Inspired has a variety of options to EXPLORE, DREAM and DISCOVER.

Commedia dell’Arte & Italian Interior Design

If you are an art lover or just love Italy, join us in Florence for 3 weeks this June for our 2 hands-on workshops in Commedia dell’Arte and Italian Interior Design. It is your chance to stroll the streets of Florence, feel the energy that thrives in the city or take a trip to the Tuscan hills to take in beautiful views.

Yoga, Meditation and Sacred Dance

If you want to feel one with nature and help harmonize your body, join us on a sacred island in Greece where you will explore the beautiful Greek island while doing yoga, meditation and sacred dance.

English and Surf

If you are not a native English speaker and would like to practice, join us in England for our English and Surf course. There you will have an opportunity to learn how to surf in a surfer’s paradise and have fun English classes where you will improve your pronunciation and overall English.

If you are looking to see how Yoga and Peace tie together, join us in India for our Yoga for Peace course. There you will live in a Bishnoi Village practicing and learning about Yoga for Peace.

All of these are opportunities to add amazing experiences to your lives. These programs will introduce you to people from other places as well as allow you experience life in a different country.
