Learn and Serve in Italy

Florence Open City is a program of cultural integration within the city and its local economy through an academic path. Its aim is the discovery of the true soul of Florence, scraping away the touristic surface and giving students the opportunity both to learn Italian and to acquire a hands-on experience in a florentine bottega/studio/laboratory. Areas of interest may be restoration; papermaking; woodworking; pottery; book binding; shoemaking; jewelry; fashion; painting; design; architecture; photography; video making; food, wine and hospitality, etc.
