The Renaissance in Arezzo

One week to learn Italian
and discover the beauty of Piero’s paintings

A course dedicated to the master of Renaissance art, to a figure that in the history of Italian art has been capable of embracing and interpreting the new stimuli of his time, to a painter whose perfect and magnificent art is still alive centuries later: Piero della Francesca.

An eclectic and leading figure in Arezzo in the fifteenth century, Piero, as we call him today in Tuscany, had great influence in Renaissance culture. At his time, his works were ‘modern’ and new and had an amazing impressive communicative power that is still vivid today. He brought his art in the courts of Italy but he remained an independent thinker and artist, free to express himself with his own language.

During the course, we will visit the places where he left his most important artistic traces. Born in Sansepolcro and active in Arezzo, Piero has left us an invaluable heritage, from which the Piero della Francesca trail originates. We celebrate this fantastic artist everyday with all the courses of our school, named after him, and in particular with this original cultural and linguistic experience. However, we recommend the course only to those who have a B1 – or higher - Italian linguistic level (check it at:


Our course “Along the Piero della Francesca trail” is a one-week course intended for a minimum of 3 people and held in Italian.

All our teachers are native speakers, graduated and qualified to teach Italian as a foreign language. Their lessons always fit for the linguistic level of the group and will provide you with the linguistic tools to critically discuss Piero’s works.
