Program Description

The one-to-one and small group courses, are structured in a way, that they combine ideally the theoretical and the practical part of Art History and include visits to the sights analyzed and discussed.

The social context of the period will also be considered in order to better understand the development of the artists' culture and way of thinking. You will study the lifestyles and philosophy of artists like Giotto, Masaccio, Botticelli, Brunelleschi, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raphael. Artists are reviewed in terms of their working environments, life events, and their personal styles and characteristics.

The masterpieces of the 15th and the 16th centuries will be analyzed and interpreted. The program encompasses art from Ancient Greece to Modern Art to provide context to the primary study of the art history of the Renaissance period, represented in Florence by some of the most important artists of all times.
