Overall
Personal recommendation
If you are interested in meeting many other Americans while abroad, attending a school that is not very academically challenging or expensive in order to spend more time and money getting to know your Italian environment and culture, then this school is a good choice. Also, the school does have a pretty strong fine arts program, with many well-trained teachers. This is really the school's strong suit, as opposed to the liberal arts studies they also offer.

Course recommendations
I enjoyed art history - every week there were walking trips to see the places and artistic pieces covered in the course. I also learned a lot from the extensive in-class work in my drawing and painting fine-art courses. Video production was good, too - each student group had the opportunity to produce two video shorts.

Definitely give it a try if you are interested in visual art but the other areas are lacking and I am sure there are more schools with better qualifications.

do not go for academic reasons...very unorganized...i chose them because they were the cheapest and that ended up not being a great reason too. The classes are a joke, a bad boring one and the advisors were a nightmare...

ABOUT
Located in the heart of Florence, the Lorenzo de' Medici school has been providing Italian language and cultural instruction to foreign students since 1972. With 24 years of experience, the Institute has perfected a method of teaching Italian not only to students from all over the world, but also to those whose professions require a special knowledge of Italian.
The School is a member of FEDE (Federation of European Schools ) and was one of the first schools to become a member of the ASILS (Association of Schools for Italian as a Second Language).
