Italy: Lorenzo de' Medici, Tuscania

Overview

The curriculum at Lorenzo de'Medici (LdM) Tuscania is designed to promote the historical, artistic, and cultural qualities that make Tuscania unique. History and archaeology courses focus on the Etruscan, Roman, and medieval civilizations at the core of Tuscania's history. Culinary arts courses, for which LdM has received much recognition, reflect Tuscania's connection to its agricultural cycles and traditions. Italian language courses prepare students to create relationships in a cross-cultural context and develop foreign language skills. The small size of the town and its leisurely pace allow students to foster connection with Italians in Tuscania. During a semester, students can take one of the two program options: Superintensive Italian Language or Liberal Arts and Studio Arts (courses in a variety of disciplines with one required Italian language course). During the summer, the Archeology Field School Program option is also available.

Additional features: optional fieldtrips

 
Location

Not to be confused with the region of Tuscany, Tuscania is a historic town located in central Italy in the breathtaking countryside of southern Maremma. It is about an hour north of Rome and two hours south of Florence.
