NYU Florence is housed on a 57-acre estate, comprised of olive groves and gardens, which contains five villas. Of these, Villa La Pietra is an outstanding example of a house museum and contains the extraordinary collection of art assembled by its early twentieth-century owners, Arthur and Hortense Mitchell Acton. Visitors have the opportunity to enjoy visits to the collection, poetry readings, concerts, performances and lectures that take place inside the villa.
NYU Florence offers a strong and aligned humanities curriculum of art history, history, cinema and literature, alongside a newly focused concentration in Social Research, Public Policy and Law. Between 350 and 375 students study here during the fall and spring semesters.
