Building Something Together: The Renaissance Program in Florence

ISI Florence collaborated in launching the Renaissance Program in Florence, an innovative five-day course that took place from November 13–18, 2023. The program explored the ideas of Renaissance humanism, and then asked, “Could we learn something valuable from these ideas today?”

About 20 participants traveled from around the world to participate in the program. They investigated Renaissance ideas about how people can become more kind and humane individuals. They also explored how people can create a better and more beautiful world wherever they live, and why contributing to the greater good of society remains important today.
