I attended the Corso di Storia dell'Arte to learn more about museums in Florence. I knew that it would be in Italian, and I might have difficulty with it. However, Monica is fantastic; Her Italian is extremely clear, her enthusiasm is contagious. It is easy to see that she knows and loves the Art of Florence and the Renaissance. She explained the significant details, and also, taught us many of the fun trivial items. She was thoroughly prepared. She is the best. I highly recommend these courses for any student who wants to learn more about some of the major art institutions, and also some of the lesser touristy. I cannot wait to return to Florence and take more classes with Monica.
I would like to highly recommend the art history tours organised by the Scuola Leonardo da Vinci. We were fortunate to have the well-versed and knowledgable, Monica lead us. The tours were conducted in Italian and relatively easy to understand as Monica pitched the information to our needs and level. What I loved most about the tours was her ability to make the characters and protagonists of the time 'come alive'! This was truly wonderful as we could visualise Michelangelo, Botticelli and other famous artists and sculptors working and contemplating their designs. I also loved learning about the Medici family for example and the important role they played in Florence. We felt as if we got to know the characters as Monica was able to recount stories about them vividly and with endless energy and enthusiasm! Grazie Monica!!
