What is Dimora?

Dimora is the Bed & Breakfast operated by the students and faculty of Apicius International School of Hospitality. Dimora embodies the philosophy of Florence University of the Arts (FUA) of going beyond the classroom and integrating students in the city of Florence through experiential learning. Students at the Apicius School of  Hospitality are involved in the daily operations of Dimora as part of their academic coursework, which are managed by Apicius faculty. Students learn how to run a business in the hospitality industry as well as the basic skills of customer care in a professional environment.

 

Located in the “Palazzo dell’Ospitalità” (FUA Hospitality building) right next to the Duomo, Dimora welcomes institutional visitors, and families and friends visiting FUA students, and FUA alumni in Florence. It’s fully equipped with ensuite rooms that pay homage to three inspiring Florentine women:  Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci, Lucrezia Buti, and Anna Maria Luisa Medici. Guests are invited to reside at Dimora for a memorable visit, and to enrich the academic experiences of Apicius students. 

 

Student Academic Involvement

Dimora is one of the pillars of Apicius and its academic activities and mission. Apicius reinterprets the concept of hospitality and tourism in the international destination of Florence, and firmly believes in the importance of a cultural approach to hospitality. Dimora welcomes not only hospitality students, but also real estate ones, as well as any semester student that might seize the opportunity of joining the experiential learning program in a business. This space allows for students to grasp issues of property management, booking operations, facility management, sales strategies, and customer care services.
