In Florence, you’ll study with dedicated on-site faculty, a visiting professor from an ACM college, and respected local artists, arts professionals, and instructors.

Program Director and art historian Josephine Mariotti has more than 25 years of experience teaching US students in Florence. Your other Renaissance art, history, music, and philosophy courses will be taught by resident faculty and a visiting ACM faculty member.

While you will learn about daily life in Italian society both in and out of the classroom, you will also have lessons with experienced, native-speaking instructors at the Linguaviva language school. These instructors will develop your Italian language abilities while enhancing your overall understanding of Italy as a country.
