Our campus of Florence

An ancient convent immersed in one of Florence's most prestigious areas

The campus in Florence (Via Bolognese 52) originates from a prestigious convent held by the Scolopi (or Priarists), an influential religious order of Christian clerics with educational venues across the country and internationally.

The impressive complex, protected by the Superintendency of Monuments, dates back to the second half of the 1600s and sits atop a hill overlooking the city, offering priceless views. More than 8,000 square meters of land cultivated with olive trees and a soccer field make up an extraordinary green space available to students for study and relaxation.

The Institute consists of 14 fully equipped classrooms (25 average seats/ class), an advanced IT lab with 40+ computer stations, a cafeteria with tables and working stations, as well as an auditorium (150 seats), vast green areas (8,000+ squared meters), a soccer field, and individual studio rooms.

The campus in Florence also includes a dormitory with 8 studio rooms (+ 2 superior studio rooms), 5 shared double rooms, as well as fully equipped common areas that include a kitchen, laundry, and toilets.

The venue is strategically located between the city center and the city’s most prestigious residential area, just 5-minute walk, among others, from the New York University (Florence).
