The international History of Art Teaching Team offers a spectrum of expertise and individual approaches to teaching, while the British Institute ‘house style’ of lecturing is informal, relaxed, engaging and participatory. Our courses are accessible to those coming to the subject with no previous background in History of Art, but are at the same time pitched at a level that will engage all those who are already familiar with the subject.


Our Italian language courses range from beginner to advanced. Whatever your level the courses are designed to develop:

•    Confidence in oral ability
•    Capacity to understand Italian as it is written and spoken today
•    Knowledge of contemporary Italian life and awareness of Italian culture

Our approach is to immerse you in the Italian language from the very first day. Classes are taught by qualified, native speaking teachers.

Italian classes are held in the morning and History of Art lectures and excursions are in the afternoon. Membership of the Harold Acton Library is included with enrolment.

To have the opportunity to live in Florence for a month with just this much academic structure and exploration is an incredible gift. The British Institute also provides a community through which to meet like-minded people, who love Italy, and with whom we have made and enjoyed ongoing friendships.
