Program Summary & Location
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.
