Explore the Italian way of life, its people, places and language

Why not spend your summer learning about Italian life and culture? Get to know the people, places and traditions of this exuberant country. This summer program with the world-renowned Accademia Italiana offers you a remarkable opportunity to study – you don’t even need to have Italian language skills.

Enjoy the magic and splendor that only Florence can bring, with its thriving artistic community and wealth of masterpieces in art, architecture and landscapes. 

  • Study alongside both Italian and international students, all eager to explore this artistic learning experience.
  • A wide range of activities and excursions are available, including exploration of the beautiful rolling hills of Tuscany. 
  •  You’ll choose one or two courses chosen from a range including Italian language, photography, design, painting and fashion.

You'll also participate in the Arcadia Italy Weekend: A tailored weekend trip for all Arcadia students coming to Italy to enhance a sense of belonging to the Arcadia community. Students will explore hidden areas of Italy (among the Abruzzo, Marche or Romagna's countryside) that are off the beaten tracks and authentic.

The weekend will provide walking tours, cultural activities and food experiences to immerse students in the Italian culture. It will also be an opportunity to create connections among students in different areas of Italy and encourage exchange visits in reciprocal cities.
