Social ProgrammeSWS Florence ART

SWS Social Programme

If Art had held a capital city, that should have been Florence. The metropolis of the region Tuscany, Italy, was the centre of Medieval and Renaissance literature, philosophy and art. It was highly praised by many historians from these two and the succeeding epochs. Florence was frequently called “The Athens of the Middle Ages”. This is the birthplace of some of the most prominent Renaissance and Medieval intellectuals as Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Francesco Guicciardini, Donatello, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and last but not the least the Medici.

Florence is the dream of every artistic soul. Its museums, palaces, churches, and squares host some of the most exemplary and important artistic treasures in the world. After more than eight centuries, Florence is still one of the major Art centres and an irresistible source of creative inspiration. Welcome to the cradle of Arts and Humanities!
