The Art is in the Square returns to the San Lorenzo neighborhood!

Preparations are in full swing for the upcoming 9th edition of our Art is in the Square event this Saturday! Once again the San Lorenzo neighborhood will be the backdrop for the artistic talents and creative minds of our art & design students. Participating in the event are, among others, students from our Fashion, Jewelry, Fine Arts, Photography, Interior and Graphic Design departments.

This year’s edition will take place during the Festival d’Europa, initiated and organized by the European University Institute. During the Festival d’Europa the city of Florence becomes the hub of discussions about the future of Europe, and a window on the activities of the EU and its member states. This year theme is Development & Collaboration, which will be reflected in our students’ works of art.
