Paula Manni graduated from Calvin College with honors in May of 2013 with a B.A. in Art History, Biology, and Archaeology. In addition to her regular coursework, she spent the 2012 January term studying in Venice, perfect preparation, as it turned out, for the present project; and she returned to Italy that summer to work on an Etruscan excavation at the necropolis of Tuscania. She is currently interning at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
