Cultural Activities in Florence

by AIFS Study Abroad

What’s going on in Florence right now? We just got the April Newsletter from Florence and there’s something unique, fun and interesting going on pretty much every day of the week! What’s on the schedule for the next few weeks? Here’s just a sample:

Tuesday – Lecture

Why did the Renaissance happen in Florence? Florence, a small inland city became a major player in the Mediterranean. How did Florence become the center of western art production, and a major center for the exchange of fiscal wealth in those years? The combination of factors that determined such a flourishing is both fascinating and surprising, and probably not what you would be expecting!
