The influence of Italy on the development of modern Western civilization is difficult to overestimate. The Roman Empire gave us the legal system and the foundations of the political system, and Florentine art still decorates galleries around the world.

Studying art, law, and fashion in a country like Italy is a truly unique experience. The oldest universities in the world are located here — the University of Bologna, the University of Rome "La Sapienza," and others. They and other universities in the country offer programs in both Italian and English.
