The school is pretty a small business, indeed has four premises. The headquarter is located in Piazza Massimo D’Azeglio 20, where we carry out all our courses and where direction office is located. The administration office is at 5 minutes walk from the main premise. The large classrooms, third premise is at 10 minutes walk from the main premise, where we have extra classrooms when large classes require them. A fourth premise is the photo studio which is located quite far from the city center, 20 minutes by bus.
Trainees would be settled both by administration office and headquarter.
The school is in a constant growth, currently part of a larger school group called Centro Italiano. In Florence we are representing Centro Italiano with our school called Centro Italiano Firenze, which includes TheDarkroom Academy and Vinarium.
