What Berry Students Say 

Lorenzo de' Medici Institute

Florence, Rome or Tuscania, Italy

Florence Located in the heart of Tuscany, Florence is the ideal destination for those interested in studying humanities, art, Italian language and culture. Extraordinarily rich in history and ancient traditions, the city, with its world-famous artistic heritage, offers the student a wide spectrum of cultural events throughout the year. LdM in Florence hosts 450 students in the fall and 900 in the spring.

Tuscania In 2004, LdM opened a center in historic Tuscania. This hilltop town of 8000 is located on the borders of the Tuscany and Lazio regions of central Italy, south of Florence and not far from Rome.  Students study art, archaeology, film and humanities at this center.

Rome A city rich in history and cultural diversity, Rome is the place to be. The LdM Rome site represents a conscious decision to participate in the life, politics, and educational traditions that made Italy the seat of the western world.  Here students learn about international business, history, political science and more.

Program of Study
All students on semester programs take at least one 3-credit Italian language course. Beyond the compulsory Italian language element, students are free to choose combinations of elective courses, all taught in English. This program is a strong option for students need to fulfill general education requirements.

Lorenzo de’ Medici offers a variety of housing for students. In Florence, students choose from apartments, hotel residences or homestays. In Tuscania and Rome, students live in apartments.

Students pay the Berry College semester tuition, which includes a weekend excursion. Current housing prices for student apartments are listed here. In Florence, there are limited homestay placements (€3150 double, €3650 single). Some courses may have materials fees, which are paid on site. Students purchase study abroad insurance for $107. Students should be prepared to pay a permit of stay fee of $140. There is currently no fee for the visa. All prices are subject to change.

Lorenzo de’ Medici requires that students have completed at least one year of college and have a minimum 2.8 GPA. Students studying in Italy must also apply for a visa.

Berry student quotes:
"It was all-around amazing - art, history, culture, food and trends surround you. "  

"I love the challenge of learning to communicate in a different language. Because of living abroad for a semester, I have decided to spend the rest of my life abroad." 

"I came to love Florence. I feel like it is my city now." 

"I think everyone should do it. There is no way you can experience another country without spending several months there. I still feel like five months was not enough time."
