We employ the inspiration of the Arts to achieve our aspirations.
A School of the Arts, Italian Language and Culture in the Heart of Florence – located a short walk from the Duomo and the Piazza San Marco.
Florence is our classroom where students immerse themselves in its art, culture, and local community.
Community, Engagement & Experiential Learning
Central to AEF’s learning pedagogy and practice is a commitment to experiential learning and community engagement. AEF provides students with opportunities to volunteer in the local community, and to work on projects through AEF’s sponsored charities.
Many of AEF’s faculty are professional practitioners who are connected to a rich and diverse network of performing artists and institutions.
Students are provided with exceptional opportunities to gain practical insight into the world of performing arts.
Additionally, students are afforded invaluable access to Florentine cultural and arts organisations as a key component of their program.
