Subject: RE: Studying Italian in Italy
Hi, Geoff -

Many years ago I got a scholarship to study for a summer at the Centro di Cultura per Stranieri (Cultural Center for Foreigners) at the Universita' degli Studi di Firenze (Florence). I LOVED it, and had a great time. We not only studied Italian (it was an advanced course), but also the history of Florence, which was fascinating. That was 22 years ago. You can check out the university at

Funny.....while cleaning out some papers, not 2 hours ago, I came across the certificate I got from them....
