Program Description:

The International Studies Institute at Palazzo Rucellai, Florence

Palazzo Rucellai

The International Studies Institute (ISI) at Palazzo Rucellai in Florence offers a study abroad program firmly rooted in the American liberal arts tradition. The University of Melbourne joined the Universities of Virginia and Connecticut, Pennsylvania State University, and Arizona State University with this study abroad consortium in the historic centre of Florence, Italy’s heart of art and culture.  Students studying at ISI can walk the same medieval cobblestone streets as Dante, gaze upon the masterpieces of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, and practice their Italian in the shadow of Brunelleschi’s dome. 

ISI was established in 2001 as a private non-profit institute.
