LORENZO DE'MEDICI IN TUSCANIA
After 30 years of successful teaching experience in Florence, The Lorenzo de'Medici School opens a new study abroad centre in Tuscania, not far from Rome, in a suggestive and historical enivornment. The Lorenzo de'Medici School of Tuscania offers courses to students from all over the world in Italian Language, Art and Culture, allowing students to study and carry out research through an exchange between cultures. Immersed in first class natural scenery, on the edge of the Maremma area of Viterbor, Lake Bolsena and the Thyrrenium Sea, Tuscania with its numerous vestiges of the fascinating Etruscan civilization, with its important Romanic and Medievel remains, is an exclusive have which time has left untouched. Thanks to the size of the town and its geographical position, the students will live their experience in a more familiar and human environment - a dimension that is difficult to find today in the big cities - an environment that has not yet lost its curiosity for the foreigner, and expresses itself in an authentic welcoming art.
Academic Program Highlights
Most of the subjects will be centred on the territorial resources or connected to them: the Etruscan civilization in its various aspects, the artistic wealth of Tuscania during the different periods, the gastronomic tradition. Thanks to the sponsoring of the local authorities, and the collaboration with the University of Viterbo, students are allowed to actively participate in the cultural and social life of the region, thus reflecting the true spirit of study abroad. The program is geared towards humanities, social sciences, studio arts, media studies and Italian language. Except for Italian language, courses are taught in English. Many courses, besides the theoretical part in the classroom, will provide practical seminars with excursion and guided visits. The academic program and the courses are run by highly-skilled and experienced faculty.
The school, an elegant 17th century building, is located in the old town centre, on the medieval walls close to one of the main gates of the town. The facilities include: computer room studio art labs, and a library.
