The Accademia is located in the very heart of Florence, halfway between the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Church of San Marco. Our facility is a Renaissance palace, perfectly restructured and equipped with the most modern technologies to make it an ideal site, uniting study and beauty, learning and culture.
We strive to create, for our students, the atmosphere of beauty, art and culture, which in Florence is in the air, so that the AEF experience will never be just a study opportunity but a true life experience.
We offer courses in Italian language, Music, Art and Design, Italian Studies and Culture in a combination of academic excellence and cultural immersion: we do not want our students to feel they are tourists – but rather citizens of Florence, however temporary.
Our method is based on the achievement of linguistic proficiency through a consistent progress in the fundamental skills: listening, reading, speaking and writing and through experiential learning.
