40 Italian lessons + 20 lessons of History of Art
Who were Brunelleschi, Michelangel, Masaccio? To appreciate fully the true significance and privilege it is to study the Italian language in Florence, we have created this course, which aims to offer a panoramic view of History of Art in Italy, particularly focussing on Florentine movements, from antique times to baroque.
Every lesson will address an individual topic of art and its history in the context of Florence and Italy. The modules will follow a themed and chronological course.
