Through Art history


Who is the course for?

This is the course that allows you to learn Italian by completely immersing yourself in the beauty of Italian art. We recommend it if art is your passion or if you are curious about the idea of learning the language in a different way, discovering the historical and artistic heritage of Florence. It is suitable for students who already have a basic knowledge of the Italian language, starting from the A2 level.

What are the course contents and objectives?

The course will allow you to progress in the study and knowledge of Italian, in understanding and speaking the language, and in deepening your knowledge of various aspects of Italian art.
You will focus on topics related to art history and, in doing so, you will also work on grammatical and lexical structures.
The language content will be adapted to your language level, from A2 to C2. The historical artistic aspects will focus in particular on the development of art (architecture, sculpture, painting) between the Middle Ages and the Florentine Renaissance. You will visit the city’s museums and get to know the masterpieces that make Florence one of the world’s art capitals.

How is the course organized?

You will have lessons both in the classroom and in the museums, churches, palaces and squares of the city. Florence, an open-air museum, will become your school.
You will be placed in a group of up to 8 people in a comfortable and relaxing environment. We will provide you with the textbook and all useful materials. The teacher will use an iPad and after each lesson you will receive a pdf with its contents. At the end of the course you will receive a certificate of attendance.
In the afternoon, or during the weekend, if you want, you can participate in our activities, 2 or 3 per week, organized and guided by the teachers in the school. You will make friends with other students, get to know Florence and its surroundings better, wider your knowledge of Italian culture and have fun practicing the Italian language.
