Florida State University Florence Program

Few cities in the world are as beautiful and fascinating as Florence. This extraordinary city, whose origins go back to Roman times, experienced its peak during the Renaissance when some of the greatest artists and thinkers of the time lived and worked in Florence: Dante, Leonardo da Vinci, Machiavelli, Michelangelo and Galileo to name but a few. Test.

Florida State University has maintained a program in Florence since 1966, the year of the Great Flood. Many students helped save important works of art damaged by the flood. The heroic efforts of our students during the flood were recognized by the commune who officially praised the FSU Florence Program for their volunteer efforts at the time. This initial union between Florida State and the City of Florence created a special relationship that has grown stronger over the years.
