Lorenzo de’ Medici – The Italian International Institute

In 2018 Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici (LdM) celebrated a major milestone: 45 years of offering international higher-education in Italy. Over forty-five years of experience have made LdM one of the most distinctive and well-established study abroad institutions in Europe.

LdM prides itself on offering academic and professionally-oriented courses designed to complement a variety of study abroad programs as well as enrich students’ knowledge, education and skills. Students can choose from 600 different courses in 39 subject areas, which are taught in English at LdM’s three locations: Florence, Rome, and Tuscania. Courses fall under seven main academic divisions: Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Italian Language and Culture, Sciences, Agriculture, Creative Arts, Design, and Nutrition, Italian Gastronomy and Culture.
