Students arrive at Villa Godiola as individuals but leave as a member of a dynamic ensemble. Indeed we say that life at the Accademia is becoming an integral part of an emerging ensemble where the whole is more than the sum of its parts. The experience at the Accademia is far more than a collection of classes, it is to live suspended for a moment–in the spaces between classes–in an atmosphere that fully supports the choices made each day that open each student to new perspectives and to new visions of what life can be.
Students live in the historic Villa Godiola within walking distance to the city centre of Arezzo, a city of 90.000 inhabitants. The Villa offers the perfect environment for artistic creation and community building.
It is our goal to create a safe space in which to experiment and grow as an artist and as a person. We aim to reach this thanks to the conception of our curriculum but also thanks to a well structured student services. We offer extensive orientation of how it is to live abroad, assistance in visa application and a school doctor.
In addition to class and studio space, the building offers student dorms, a cafeteria as well as dedicated social space.
