Chiara Mannarino, SACI Spring 2017 alum, completes 3-month Internship Program at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, Italy
SACI alum Chiara Mannarino spent her summer in Venice, Italy, learning the ins-and-outs of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, one of world’s most celebrated art institutions.
The competitive 3-month internship is an internationally renowned program that immerses interns in the cultural life of Venice and offers first-hand experience of how a museum is run, as well as familiarity with an important collection of modern art. The program also includes educational activities such as seminars, conferences, educational trips and guided tours for interns. The internship is open to Italian and international students and recent graduates who study art, art history, or related disciplines and are at the beginning of their careers. Fluency in English and spoken Italian are required of applicants.
When asked about her experience, Chiara responded:
"I helped give talks as part of the free public programming the museum offers daily, gave tours of the collection, and ran basically all of the museum operations over the course of 3 months. It was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had.”
Chiara is grateful to SACI for expanding her horizons and, especially, to her photography professor, Romeo Di Loreto, for helping her achieve her goals and for believing in her.
