The British Institute of Florence is an institution, founded in 1917, is aimed at promoting cultural exchange between Florence and so the Italian culture and the British culture. The institute that granted the Royal Chartered in 1923, was the British Institute operating overseas.
Today the Institute offers language courses, in English and in Italian as well as History of Arts courses to which add a numerous number of cultural events run throughout the year.
In March 2017 the Institute celebrated its Centenary anniversary, for the occasion the Patron of the Institute, HRH the Prince of Wales and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall.
For the occasion, the Institute started a centenary campaign to fund its courses, its projects and its cultural initiatives to keep promoting cultural exchange between the two countries.
