Il Globo: italian school in Florence, the city of art and culture


Florence: is the native city of Dante, the father of Italian language. To this day, almost 700 years after his death, Florence still enjoys the unquestioned title of being the centre of the Italian language.

Florence is also the cradle of the Renaissance and the home of innumerable art treasures.
