Megan Ruffalo

Up Close with Artwork by the Masters

Megan Ruffalo '22, a visual communication design major, used her Nazareth SPARK Grant to study abroad for a semester at the Santa Reparata International School of Art in Florence, Italy. "Getting to study art in a city full of work by Renaissance masters is so incredible," said Megan — calling it unbelievable to see in person, up close, the artworks she has read and learned about. Among her favorite experiences: seeing Michelangelo's sculpture David, climbing all 463 steps to the top of Florence's Duomo, and taking day trips to explore other beautiful Tuscan cities like Siena, San Gimignano, and Viareggio.
