Accademia Europea Di Firenze (AEF)

“Florence, birthplace of the Renaissance. This unique city has always inspired the thoughts and creations of artists and travelers: Galileo, Leonardo, Machiavelli, Brunelleschi, Dante, Donatello are just some of the geniuses that have walked the streets that our students stroll through today, surrounded by the widespread beauty that becomes daily nourishment for their learning path. It is in this way that every single formative opportunity becomes part of a global cultural experience, from the lessons in Art History to those of cooking. Everything connects and acquires meaning. Florence is therefore the place where experiential learning becomes real and where students are truly immersed in the cultural and social context.”
