LinguaViva Study Abroad Program - Learn Italian in Florence

GO: Why did you decide to study abroad with LinguaViva in Florence, Italy?

Nicole: Back in 2006, I went on a family vacation to Italy. We stayed mostly in Rome, but went on a few day trips to surrounding cities, one of those cities being Florence. I cannot explain the feeling I got when I toured Florence, other than one of complete awe. I was so drawn to the architecture, beauty and charm of the city. I could not believe that so many great works of art could all be within ten minutes of each other. I knew that a few hours in Florence would not suffice and I told my parents that I needed to come back.

Sophomore year of college was when I began researching study abroad programs because I already knew that I wanted to go abroad the spring of my junior year. I only wanted to go to one place, Florence. Unfortunately for me, my college seemed to offer study abroad programs in just about every other city around the world, except for the one place I wanted to go. That was not going to prevent me from going to Florence, so I researched for a while the programs offered through other colleges. I found one that went through LinguaViva and applied as early as I could. I was immediately drawn to the LinguaViva program because it is a small school that attracts students from all over the world and offers so many excursions.

GO: What made studying abroad a unique and special experience?

Nicole: My study abroad experience was unique because I went through an American college's program to LinguaViva. There were about 25 students in the program, and while we were housed with students within the program, we attended classes with other international students. The first person I met and ended up befriending at LinguaViva was from Venezuela and another friend I made was from Sweden. I would have never imagined that the school would have been so diverse. What made it even more interesting was that we learned the Italian language and culture together. The staff at LinguaViva was incredible. All of my teachers were excited to teach us Italian and always gave us advice on things to do around the city.

I remember Graydon Parrish talking about

by Vanitas

A gallery in NYC that sold the figurative studies of atelier students who were studying at different levels at the most recognized studio schools worldwide. I'd imagine we'd be talkng about Charles H. Cecil Studios in Florence, Italy; The Florence Academy of Art, Florence, Italy; Angel Academy, Florence, Italy; -- the former Atelier Lack now The Atelier Studio of Art in Minnesota (
) among others.
I can't remember on what forum I read his commentary but the quality of the student work at these schools is very high -- you'd have to appreciate traditonal realism however

Where can I see/sit in/drive a Ferrari in Italy?

I'm going on a vacation to Italy and I really wanna see a Ferrari 458 Italia up close in person. That would make the whole trip for me. Also, if at all possible, I'd LOVE to take one for a lap around a track. Is this possible? If so, where? Cost is no object.

I'll just add that most of the uber-expensive cars in the world can't be "test driven" like you would a Toyota. Even if you are really intending to buy a Maserati, they won't let you take it out for a spin, usually. First you buy it, then you drive it. Going to a Ferrari dealership expecting them to just let you hop in a car and go for a joyride is unrealistic at best. It's not like it's a new idea, either. If that is what you're thinking is..

Is it true that if youu want to buy a Ferrari, beside a lot of money, u need to take a special driving course?

I heard that even if you have money you cannot buy a new Ferrari car just like that.... you need to take special training provided by Ferrari, and that is a condition, if it`s your first Ferrari car.

Nope. It's not required, but is highly recommended. The Ferrari driving school is located in Italy. It has been operating for 13 years. A new one is opening up in a Canadian ski town in a few weeks. The new course in Canada costs U.S. $8,200. Like the school in Italy, the Canadian facilities include a race track.

Here's another interesting tidbit: One cannot order a new Maybach without being approved by the manufacturer first.
