COVID-19

THE BRITISH INSTITUTE OF FLORENCE IS FOLLOWING THE GUIDELINES AND INSTRUCTIONS ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES.

On 8th March the Italian Government issued a decree with new instructions designed to control the spread of the virus. These and subsequent provisions severely curtail all social, recreational, cultural and educational activities throughout Italy, and encourage people to move about as little as possible.  As a result, the British Institute of Florence is obliged to close its library and school until further notice.  

At this challenging time we are continuing to offer all our scheduled English classes on-line with our wonderful teachers working from home. New online course are also open for registration. We are also accepting registrations for Cambridge exams, which we hope can resume in June. 

And we are offering virtual Wednesday Lectures and History of Art seminars via the Zoom videoconferencing platform.

Given the global travel situation, we have decided to suspend our History of Art and Italian language programmes from now until the end of July.  We hope to resume in September, but this may not actually be possible until 2021.

Stay safe everyone  …. And we look forward to seeing you again in better times.
