Program Description:

Study Abroad in Florence

Italians value taste and aesthetics, and hold their food, art, design, and fashion to long-held high standards. This program emphasizes key concepts such as beauty, quality, and craftsmanship through a comprehensive and practical examination of the cultural, economic, historical, and linguistic factors that contribute to the "Italian style." Courses on contemporary topics will examine the “Made in Italy” label that industries proudly thrive on, which adds value to one-of-a-kind items in a mass-produced world. Skill, technique, and sophistication will characterize your Italian summer experience.
