The Gucci company was founded in 1921, by Guccio Gucci in Florence. The founder, a born and bred Florentine, began his professional life as a young elevator-operator at the Savoy in London. This work experience allowed him to learn about English style, horses and riding, which later became fundamental points of the brand's heritage. It was then, in 1934, that the company introduced the bellhop brand with a suitcase and a travel bag.
Florence is the cradle of the Renaissance, the city of art, the homeland of Dante, the language of a true Italian, but did you know that the Florentine dialect has terms and figures of speech that are very different from Italian? Since our Accademia is based in this beautiful city, we decided to reveal these Florentine ways of speaking to you that will put you in direct contact and allow you to integrate even more with the culture and with all the people who live here.
It's a sunny autumn morning in Florence. The students and the AEF team get ready to leave: ready to experience a day different from the others! The Accademia has organized a day in the Chianti Classico wine region, to learn about the history of olive oil and Tuscan wine. A shuttle comes to pick everyone up: the dome of the Duomo and the traffic slowly fade away leaving room for green hills and tall cypress trees. Autumn colors characterize the landscape: yellow, orange, green, many shades of brown... it is a succession of colors.
