Unlock your creativity and draw inspiration from the history and landscape of Florence.
Florence was home to Dante, Boccaccio, Michelangelo, and Botticelli and remains a city with a vibrant cultural life. You will have the opportunity to draw on these artistic wellsprings, while benefiting from the peace and inspiration offered by NYU’s Villa La Pietra, surrounded by 57 acres of gardens and olive groves, where you will live and work.
Get inspired and integrate the knowledge and firsthand experiences of Florence in your writing through the two courses that make up this program. In “Developing the Dramatic Script for Film or Theatre” you will do all the necessary preparatory work before writing a feature length screenplay or long-form television script. In “History of Italian Cinema” you will study the history and aesthetics of Italy’s renowned cinematic history.
