About the Course

Do not expect only a book related approach:  our courses’ fees include also the entries to the museums and churches visited during the lessons, so to give you the opportunity to approach the topics studied first hand, with your eyes right on the masterpieces you would like to talk about.

The program of our courses in Art History covers from Ancient times to Modern Art, in order to give you all  information in order to prepare the focus on the art history of the Renaissance period in Florence, where it is represented by some of the most important artists of all times.

But the artists and their works will not be studied as self-standing: in our art history courses you will also learn about their lifestyles and philosophy,  through anedoctes on their life events and artistic characteristics, all through an analysis of the social context of the period, in order to better understand the development of the artists’ culture and way of thinking.
