Gonzaga-in-Florence, administered by the University, was established in 1963. This program accepts both Gonzaga and non-Gonzaga students for the full academic year, semester or summer.
The city of Florence was chosen because of its tradition as the intellectual and artistic center of both the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It also was the student home of Aloysius Gonzaga. Its libraries, museums, churches and monuments provide today's students with unique opportunities for understanding the forces which shaped European civilization.
Gonzaga-in-Florence is located in the center of Florence not far from the Duomo and looks onto the Giardino dei Semplici, a 16th-century garden created by the Medici family. It is a few steps from Fra Angelico's frescoes painted for the San Marco monastery and from Michelangelo's David housed in the Galleria dell'Academia.
Gonzaga-in-Florence, which is housed in the Mozilo Center, provides students with all the facilities required for learning and socializing. The school is wired with the latest technology which includes 20 desktop computers. In addition, the center's Martin Library collection consists of over 10,000 volumes. For research, students have access to Gonzaga University's Spokane campus Foley Library via 12 dedicated computers. A student lounge and fitness center are located on the lower level.
