Summer vacations in Florence University of Arts are able to present an unforgettable experience of living and studying in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, in Florence. The city is a true pearl of Italian and European culture, an entire open-air museum, almost entirely a monument of the Renaissance: it was here that once worked Machiavelli, Michelangelo, Dante and Leonardo da Vinci, it was here that the legendary dynasty Medici was born. Florence stores about 1/5 of the world's cultural values: there are countless museums, galleries, palaces and temples, a huge number of paintings, sculptures and frescos. Today, Florence has an excellent modern infrastructure, which is perfectly combined with the historical appearance of the city: there are cafes and restaurants, theaters and cinema, clubs and bars - there is hardly an attractive place for connoisseurs of art and culture, gourmets and creative personalities.
Summer programs Florence University of Arts accept students from around the world at the age of 12 years. Summer courses are balanced, harmoniously combine the study of the chosen art form with familiarity with Italian cuisine and history. A large number of excursions around the city and all of Tuscany are organized. The university is proud of the qualifications and experience of its teachers - among them there are many artists, historians and professors, world-renowned critics who are ready to transfer to students a piece of their enthusiasm, love for Italy and art in general.
For the preparation of the curriculum, each student of the Florence University of Arts chooses two courses from the presented list, for each of which 4 lessons are provided per week (2 hours per day). Each course is taught and supervised by the professors of the Palazzi International Education Association. Most of the classes are not in classes, but in a direct trip through Florence, in museums and on the territory of historical monuments - almost the whole city turns into a school. Schoolchildren can personally explore the legendary cultural and historical sites, make a variety of high-quality photographs and graphic sketches, learn architecture, sculpture, rules of composition.
