Other comments: I was there during Easter and I would have liked more social arrangements from the school's side. It would have been better if the school could arrange more social get togethers like concerts, dancing and other cultural events.
The setting of the school in the old town and the warm and friendly staff. Friends said that the cooking and singing classes are really worth while if you are interested in cooking or singing.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: the palio (horse race on July 2 or August 16), the festival of classical music in the second week of July and the open air cinema in the old fortezza in July and the beginning of August.
Other comments: The school puts students together in one flat who are about the same age. Who is 33 is not likely to share an apartment with people who are 17. I liked that. If you are not used to the Italian standard of living you might find the school and the apartments a bit wacky.
Great learning experience.
