The school in Tuscania is located in an elegantly modern structure hidden within an ancient fortified building. It is situated in the old town center and is physically incorporated into the medieval stone walls.
The building has recently been remodeled to provide modern, light-filled studios and classrooms. The entry vestibule and meeting area opens onto an internal courtyard with street access.
The facilities also include a fully-equipped teaching kitchen for classes on Mediterranean cuisine through the Culinary Arts program.
The program actively uses the amenities of the town as an extension of the campus.
Athena's Rome campus is located in the center of this historic city. The facilities form part of an elegant Umbertine palace constructed at the end of the 19th century. The building has been redesigned to provide modern and functional rooms that include studios and classrooms. Many of the principal sites and monuments of Rome such as the Spanish Steps, the Quirinale, and the Trevi Fountain are within walking distance of the facility. This central location can be easily reached from any part of the city by public transportation. LdM is less than five minutes away from the central rail station (Termini) that services both airports. LDM is equipped with modern computer and language labs, comfortable classrooms and knowledgeable faculty. One of the primary missions of the Lorenzo de' Medici School, which has been operating its main campus in Florence for more than 30 years, is to promote global education through authentic cultural immersion programs and a diverse international student population.
LdM in Florence is located in ten campus buildings (totaling 4800 square meters) in the historic city center, right next to the thriving San Lorenzo market and church and close to transport facilities. Florence's unique architectural masterpiece, the Duomo, is within a few minutes' walk. Together the LdM buildings contain a full range of facilities including numerous classrooms and large, specialized art studios, a cafeteria, a courtyard garden, the library, the Student Point and the computer center.
The main LdM building in Florence is situated in Via Faenza and dates back to the 13th century. It originated as a convent connected to a medieval church, San Jacopo in Campo Corbolini. This church, now deconsecrated, was founded in 1206 and for its first hundred years belonged to the Knights Templar. Rich in medieval frescoes and sculpture, the church has recently been restored to its original splendor, and serves as the setting for LdM conferences and receptions. Students and professors from LdM's Restoration Department were fully involved in the restoration of the church interior.
Istituto Venezia was founded in the 90s as the only school in Venice designed to teach Italian as a second language and, as such, has a very diverse student population.
The school is located in Campo Santa Margherita, a historic square in the center of Venice. It is in close proximity to other institutions within the "university area," and is just ten minutes from the bus terminal (Piazzale Roma) and fifteen minutes on foot from the train station.
The square serves as a meeting place for students and residents who go shopping in the beautiful stores of the area or take a break to have a chat and drink in the open-air cafés.
The school's edifice is a historical building with a wide welcoming terrace. All students have free access to internet points, a self-access study room with video facilities (where they can watch films from the video collection of the school), and WiFi internet connection.
