Massimo De Matteis

After a long period spent in Brazil where he held prestigious positions in the field of relations with public and private Italian and foreign entities, Massimo returned to Italy to take part in the project for founding the Accademia Europea di Firenze. His commitment to the dissemination of Italian culture abroad has always been intense: in 1999 he participated in the continental meeting of the General Committee of Italians Abroad (CGIE) in Rio de Janeiro in his capacity as an expert in the youth, information and Italian language sectors. In 2000 he took part in the Pre-Conference of Italians in the World, held in Montevideo, and then participated at the Conference in Rome. He also contributed to the creation of the Institute of Italian Culture in Fortaleza (Brazil) and to the production of publications and exhibitions in collaboration with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Upon returning to Italy in 2002, Massimo helped in the founding of the Accademia Europea di Firenze where he currently holds the position of Managing Director.
The Accademia Europea di Firenze is an International School of Italian Arts, Language and Culture.
Founded in 2005 as a school of Italian for foreigners, over time it has expanded its offer to Italian art and culture, music and dance.
The AEF also offers Certificate Programs in Voice & Opera, Drawing & Painting and Dance, and a Certificate Program in Italian Language and Culture, Study Abroad Programs in collaboration with prestigious American Universities, Summer and Winter Programs and Joint Academic Programs developed with university institutions all over the world.
The experiential approach and the quality of the professors make this school, strongly rooted in Italian history and culture but endowed with European academic standards, an international environment in the city of the Renaissance and of widespread beauty.
