Lorenzo de' Medici Florence (LdM) is situated in the heart of Tuscany, a region that has many classified historical monuments. This makes LdM an ideal choice for those interested in studying humanities, creative arts, design or Italian language and culture. LdM offers classes in these disciplines and is recognized as having one of the finest studio art programs in Italy. Courses are taught in English with the exception of language classes and some courses designated "in Italian." During a semester, students can take one of the three program options: Super-intensive Italian Language; Liberal Arts and Studio Arts (courses in a variety of disciplines with one required Italian language course); or a semester- or year-long certificate program in Architecture in Urban Context, Interior Design in Contemporary Living, LdM-NCRC International Conflict Transformation, Product Design toward Sustainability, Visual Communication for Fashion, etc.
