There is a reason why Italy is a favorite destination for students, scholars and visitors across the globe. Not only does its rich history encompass civilizations that span from Ancient Greek, to Etruscan, Roman and Norman, just to name a few, but also because Italians have a way of practicing the art of beauty in every aspect of their life. Food, art, fashion, design, theater, cinema, literature, street festivals and ancient celebrations disguised by Catholic rituals, as well as the profound contrasts that exist between different areas of the country, all contribute to give the country a cultural dimension of unique value. All of that culture is framed within a landscape that is incredibly varied and surprising, and that makes the Italian way of life speak of harmony and balance of shapes, colors and flavors. Italy itself is a way of life and an endless source of inspiration.  This Italian Culture course is an opportunity to learn more about beauty, and above all, it represents an opportunity for students to experience first-hand an authentic and profound way of life while they widen their cultural scope and intellectual understanding on how the intertwining of ancient cultures can still shape the essence of Italy as a modern country within a globalized world.

Students will live in shared accommodations, apartments in Perugia city center and in walking distance from Umbra Institute where courses are held. Apartments will be furnished and will have a fully equipped kitchen. Students will be responsible for their meals except for the Welcome and farewell dinner.

Cost of the Program: $3.925.00 ( 3-6 credits) Your $500, non-refundable deposit must be made by February 15th, 2024.
