Lorenzo de' Medici Institute (LdM)

Introduction

Lorenzo de' Medici Institute (LdM) , The Italian International Institute

After more than 35 years of growth and experience, Istituto Lorenzo de' Medici (LdM) is known as Italy's most distinctive and established study abroad institution. LdM prides itself on its years of experience of offering professionally oriented courses in Fashion, Design, Archaeology, Studio Arts, Performing Arts and allied subjects. Students can choose from over than 400 different courses in Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, International Business, Economics, Political Science, Studio and Performing Arts and Italian Language and Culture. Istituto Lorenzo de' Medici has recently expanded to other areas of Italy.

Based on the longevity and success of our Florence campus, three new campuses were opened in Rome, Tuscania, and Venice. This expansion provides the opportunity for students to study abroad in multiple locations and truly experience different aspects of Italy. The different campuses augment already-expansive offerings and appeal to students of many different backgrounds, interests, experiences, and motivations.

We provide students attending LdM with many opportunities to experience the Italy "city beyond the postcard." Our Cultural Coordinators organize clubs and excursions so students with the same interests can meet and interact with the student community, and with the people of Florence, Rome, Tuscania, and Venice. LdM attracts students from all over the world. We have a large and diverse student body. At the same time, LdM emphasizes the personal development of each student. We aim to integrate formal university-level learning with an emphasis on personal growth, individual engagement, and community responsibility. With our legacy, quality education, ties to the community, cutting-edge methods of teaching, and broadening educational portfolio, studying at LdM is an experience that will shape your future.
