Art history courses in Florence - Italian art history

in florence

Do you love art? Are you awed by the sculpture, frescoes, and paintings of the Renaissance masters? Would you like to experience some of this work first hand?

Then, we would like to invite you to a journey into the past. We offer Italian art history courses on an individual basis and in small group classes (3-4 participants) conducted by enthusiastic experts who will guide you through all the evolutions of the different artistic currents.

Our art history courses in  Florence meet three times a week (for a total of 9 hours per week) and begin with an introductory part, followed by church and museums visits that will allow you to experience art history first hand, and to see with your own eyes some of the masterpieces of the greatest Italian artists. All the lessons can be taught in English and Italian; individual courses can also be organized in Spanish and French.

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. The masterpieces of the 15th and the 16th centuries will be analyzed and interpreted.

In addition, 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 social context of the period will also be considered in order to better understand the development of the artists’ culture and way of thinking.

The length of our art history courses in Florence is flexible and can spread from 1 week to 3 months. They are designed to give a general overview to those who can spend only a few days, and to offer a more in-depth understanding for those who can attend the course for a longer period of time.
