Art, Design & Fashion in the artistic heart of Italy

Do you have a passion for fashion? Are you eager to explore your artistic talents in one of the most famous and world-renowned seats of creative learning? Look no further than the Accademia Italiana in Florence, one of Europe’s premier institutes for art and design - from graphics to textiles and everything in between. Located in two beautiful renaissance buildings directly across from the famous Pitti Palace in Florence's Oltrarno district, just steps away from the Ponte Vecchio, this seat of learning will excite, motivate and inspire you immediately.


You’ll choose four 3-credit courses from a wide range, many of which are taught in both English and Italian.  In addition, you’ll take a 4-credit Italian language course.

  • Courses are offered in English and Italian so whatever your language or artistic skills level you’ll be able to attend

  • Combine liberal arts courses and Italian history and cultural with strong offerings in studio art, fashion, graphic arts, interior and industrial design and textiles.

  • Students from all over Italy and the world come to Florence to study at Accademia Italiana.

  • For higher level art and design courses, you may be asked to submit a portfolio.

Never would I have had this kind of experience on any other study abroad program. ”
