Studying graphic design in Florence was great! I also fell in love with Florence and the Italian lifestyle. The courses that I took gave me flexibility when developing assignments and projects with faculty members. I got to create my own projects, which was an extremely important factor, and they were all fun and very interesting to work on.

The classrooms and studio of the school are amazing, the staff is so helpful and the school is right in the center, making other details like the lunch break easy too.
I am currently working in San Miniato, which is 40 minutes from Florence, assisting the hosiery designer Emilio Cavallini at his factory. He is working on a book

for his art that I’m doing the illustrations for. I’m also designing patterns for his hosiery collections and making a video about Emilio’s factory and art.
Florence is a great city. Use your time that you have here to learn and experience, don’t follow the main streets, get lost, ignore the places geared towards foreign students and don’t get fooled into pub crawls and insubstantial tours with tourist agencies. Take a random train somewhere, don’t travel too much outside of Florence, enjoy the city and explore because it’s a lot bigger than the main piazzas. Learn Italian, respect the city, enjoy the student life. And keep your eyes open for opportunities!
