Those who study with the School in Italy in Florence, Ferrara, or Rome are exceptional among U.S. students in Italy: they study in Italian—and speak it well. The School, founded in 1960, is among a tiny handful of study abroad programs in which students take all course work in Italian and can integrate into an Italian university. It therefore attracts students whom local university faculty praise for their academic seriousness and enthusiasm for learning.
Florence is the embodiment of the Renaissance, which began in Tuscany during the fourteenth century and continued to influence the region and ultimately the world for four hundred years. Now a bustling city filled with piazze, cafes, and museums, the culture of Florence is ideally suited for student life. And while Florence welcomes large numbers of international students each year, students at the School in Italy are noteworthy for their linguistic proficiency and their commitment to cultural immersion.
Middlebury's Sede at the Palazzo Giugni, is situated in the academic heart of the old city, an area bustling with coffee shops, bookstores, cultural clubs, and academic buildings. The Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, and Florence's other main monuments are all within easy walking distance. Students also enroll directly at the Universita degli Studi di Firenze.
