Program Description:
Milan Italy ISEP Direct

With almost 40 years of experience, Istituto Lorenzo de' Medici (LdM) is one of Italy's most distinctive and well-established study abroad institutions. Depending on the campus you attend, you can choose from over 400 different courses in 32 subject areas. Courses fall under four main academic divisions: Arts and Sciences, Creative Arts, Design, and Italian Language and Culture. 

LdM’s original campus is in Florence located in the heart of Tuscany. Florence is known to be a city extraordinarily rich in history and ancient traditions.  It is the place where Dante, Brunelleschi, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Machiavelli and Galileo changed forever the way we see the world. It is the ideal destination for those interested in studying humanities, the arts, Italian language and culture or design. In recent years, smaller campuses were opened in Rome, the capital of the country with unparalleled history and cultural diversity, and in Tuscania, a small, walled city known for its vivid cultural life and its breathtaking countryside atmosphere. 

Detailed information on each location is available here.  For a quick overview of highlights in each location, take a look here:

"This program worked really well for my degree.  I fulfilled a course for my minor by studying intercultural communication, and my pairing food and wine course satisfied a general education requirement and counted toward my required international experience for my minor."
- Danielle, Management & Spanish for Business Professions major, International Business minor, Florence, Summer 2013

"I am attending Lorenzo de Medici for an entire year to complete their certificate program for art conservation.  When I return, I plan to pursue a graduate degree in art conservation."
