At SACI, you’ll collaborate with artists, major museums, and community organizations in a city thriving with both traditional and contemporary art, making lasting connections in the process. You’ll also have rewarding opportunities to travel to major art sites, international art fairs, and exhibitions throughout Italy and Europe. Our two Renaissance palazzi in the heart of Florence offer the ideal space to work and create, and include a library and studio facilities for students.
Contemporary, multidisciplinary art education at SACI encourages exploration and self-discovery while providing close mentorship and practical career guidance. You’ll gain new perspectives working alongside deeply committed faculty members who bring diverse backgrounds and practices to their classes.
