It was a wonderful experience. I learnt a lot of things about rennaissance art during those days, while I had -simultaneously- the opportunity to visit monuments and museums in Florence, and see so many original masterpieces. It was a really exciting course, with an exceptional teacher (Yasmin Latina) and a great team of participants!

The best course I have attended so far. Yasmin Latina is a highly educated, passionate and inspirational speaker, outstanding woman, attentive teacher. The up-to-date, clever explanations of his approach provide a great help to the teaching profession. I recommend it not only to colleagues in the field of humanities, but to anyone who is interested in the evolution of the world around us, culture and civilization. I can only praise. Thank you for the opportunity.
