Florence is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and is an ideal place to study architecture, art, and design. The city has more than 100 museums devoted to the fine arts; and city center is a museum in itself, filled with meticulously preserved architecture dating from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Through Kent State’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) in Florence, students will encounter the rebirth of architecture in Europe and witness in person the historical evolution of European art, interior design, and urbanism – including the opportunity to explore the contemporary art and design scene in Italy.
