DIVA VISION

  • DIVA's eye on Florence is like Renaissance architect Brunelleschi's box invented to capture perspective through light: what’s projected through the pinhole is the innovative vision created by our students studying in this city which has been the cradle of artistic creativity since Renaissance times. Our role in this rich background is to preserve its visionary spirit but not dwell upon it, to work towards a contemporary, innovative future.

  • DIVA is an academic institution that offers studies in digital photography, rich multimedia, videomaking, graphic design, and interior design in Florence.

  • DIVA's philosophy is literally a vision, one that seeks to train students to forge a new light and a new perspective on how digital and visual arts reveal our surroundings.

  • DIVA's technological approach explores local and European surroundings as a living, dynamic canvas by breathing new life and mobility into historical and traditional contexts, capturing the contemporary social landscape and creating new scenarios for the images of tomorrow.

  • DIVA supports sustainable media and design in its didactic methods and practices.
