About

This extraordinary semester-long program will bring you into in the heart of Florence, a city which is a monument to the Renaissance, and which contains more art per square mile than any other place on earth. Its urban texture spans two thousand years of history, and on its streets walked Brunelleschi, Leonardo, Machiavelli, Michelangelo, Galileo, and a host of others who helped shape our world and civilization. The program is located at the Palazzo Rucellai, one of three buildings in Florence designed by the famed fifteenth-century architect and humanist Leon Battista Alberti. You will find the Institute at Palazzo Rucellai a warm and welcoming place, with an expert and accessible staff that always has time to answer a question or to help with a problem. The Institute has a small computer center, lap top hubs, a library, and a student lounge.
