The “Art is in the Square” celebrates its 10th Anniversary!

Teaming up with our Event Planning classes and Design & Art Departments, the Anniversary Edition promises to be the highlight of this Spring 2016 semester

We are very proud to announce the 10th Anniversary of Art is in the Square: the annual LdM end-of-the-semester event! For this special occasion the organization has decided to team up with the three Event Planning classes for a memorable celebration.

For 10 years in a row, Art is in the Square has been celebrating our students’ artistic achievements, the historic surroundings of our Institute, and cultural diversity through various exhibitions, fashion shows and dance performances taking place in the open air, thus making the city of Florence a temporary one-day museum for our students to show what they have learned during their studies at LdM.

This year the artistic and cultural event features: an Art and Design Exhibition, Dance Performance, and three other entertaining and cultural activities organized by students in the “Event Planning” course.

We look forward to welcoming all LdM students, faculty, staff, locals and tourists alike at this exciting event to celebrate together 10 years of Art is in the Square!
