APICIUS reinterprets the concept of hospitality and tourism in the international destination of Florence, where the cityscape is teeming with traditional and contemporary structures sought by people from all over the world.
APICIUS firmly believes in the importance of a cultural approach to hospitality by examining the unique context of cities and countries in a global framework.Hospitality should and must be enhanced by the local culture of a city, and our position and interaction within the city of Florence has the goal of culturally educating those who visit through the hospitality industry.
APICIUS seeks to shape students who make dynamic, proactive contributions to the areas of hospitality in Italy during their studies and go on to become excellent professionals with the same impact in future destinations.
APICIUS is deeply committed to making a prolific vital impact on the city of Florence not just for its obvious touristic aspects but as a viable city, where city conser vat ion and contemporar y implementat ion complement each other in a del icate balance, through i t s bel ief in eco- sus tainable methods and didactics.
APICIUS strives to provide its students with an experience that goes beyond the tourist facade of Florence by communicating to them that who we are and what they experience goes beyond cultural stereotypes.
APICIUS believes that each student should return home with a clear concept of Florence and Italy that includes a profound cultural understanding gained from integration with the city, its population, its art, and its culture. What they receive from the experience is a life changed and newfound understanding and perspectives that they will carry in their hearts for the rest of their lives.
