Santa Reparata International School of Art
Santa Reparata International School of Art is comfortably set in downtown Florence, fusing North American higher education expectations and Italian intimacy and opportunity. SRISA was founded in 1970 and has become a top design, art, and language institution in Italy. The faculty all have higher education degrees in their field of teaching, and when local artists and business men and women come to guest lecture—often bringing students out of the classroom and into the field—learning is at its finest.
Best of all, credits transfer back to your home university is a breeze. Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri evaluates and provides course accreditation.
SRISA’s campus is smack dab in the center of Florence. It houses its own art gallery, drawing studio, printmaking lab, photo lab and darkroom, a study lounge, library, and high-speed computers with Internet. Walk six minutes from campus and you’re standing in front of the Duomo. For lunch eat fresh mozzarella and ham sammies over toasted baguette on the banks of the Arno.
Campus and classrooms are located at Via san gallo, 53r – 50129 Firenze, Italy. By bus take any of these numbers: 1, 6, 11, 14, 17, 23, 52, 54, and 82.
