We offer 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. The courses 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.
