CESMA's CHARTER programs are short classes designed for "edutourists" who would like to deeply experience the art, history, and culture of Italy while traveling throughout the country. Our programs combine formal classroom instruction and fun lab work with exciting fieldtrips to destinations such as Florence, Milan, the Mediterranean, the Alps, and the Langhe wine country to deliver an experience to be remembered for a lifetime.
