CEA CAPA-Florence

Florence is a vibrant, awe-inspiring, and culturally rich Global City. Its history as the "Cradle of the Renaissance" remains readily accessible through its art and architecture, and with an ever-growing immigrant population, Florence is very much a multicultural city. You can explore the city's diversity by taking a Migrantour or visiting Vivi Market to find authentic  foods and ingredients from Asia, Latin America, and other regions.

This six-week summer program gives you insight into the significant ways in which Florence has been imagined, invented, and transformed by globalization. Earn 6 credits.
