Website Cookie Policy

This website, as most on the Internet, uses variable storage – more commonly called cookies. These are in-use for a variety of reasons detailed below.

Cookies are small text files that are stored locally on your computer and can only be accessed by the server that saved them. These allow for websites to provide services and a seamless experience by saving variables such as screen width, last item viewed, visitor preferences or session information. This last part, session information, is very important to keep tabs on your status on the site, while visiting. These session cookies attach a random and anonymous session variable to your visit so that when you change pages and move about the site, your experience is continuous. Without session variables, multiple visitors would clash and one user’s clicks may be interpreted by the server as that of another.

Tiny Florence

Tiny Florence

Firenze Piccolina

ENG: Tiny Florence is an archive of photographs produced by Florence University of the Arts – American University of Florence students. The collection highlights various aspects of the city from the perspective of International study abroad students who are new to Florence and taking an introductory photography course. 

One student from the street photography course describes the experience as a step outside her comfort zone and a way to “gain confidence navigating Florence.” Some assignments require students to photograph strangers from an arm’s length and to wander down unfamiliar streets, something many never imagined doing in their home country. These experiences offer the students a unique way to delve into the city, resulting in artwork that showcases fresh perspectives of Florentine architecture, landscapes, people, and culture. 

Over the course of the academic session, students acquire considerable technical skills that help convert the moments they capture into unique, monochromatic works of art. The process allows students to communicate their impressions of the city and voice their artistic style. One student describes his final work as “emoting a cohesive feeling of tranquility.” The tiny 6x6cm images encourage viewers to take a closer look- drawing attention to aspects of the city that often go unseen. Tiny Florence represents the small pieces that make up the city.

ITA: Firenze Piccolina è un archivio di foto prodotte dagli studenti della Florence University of The Arts – The American University of Florence. La collezione evidenzia vari aspetti della città dalla prospettiva di studenti internazionali che stanno esplorando Firenze per la prima volta e frequentando un corso introduttivo di fotografia.

Uno degli studenti del corso di Street Photography ha descritto l’esperienza come un passo fuori dalla sua zona di confort ed un modo di “acquisire fiducia nel navigare Firenze”.  Alcuni degli esercizi richiesti dagli studenti includevano fotografare estranei da vicino and esplorare strade a loro poco conosciute, attività che probabilmente non avrebbero svolto nel loro paese d’origine. Queste esperienze hanno permesso di immergersi in un modo unico nella città, portando alla creazione di opere che mostrano nuove prospettive dell’architettura, delle paesaggi, della popolazione e cultura fiorentine. Durante la sessione accademica gli studenti hanno acquisito una considerevole conoscenza tecnica che li ha aiutati a catturare momenti chiave in queste opere monocromatiche. Il processo gli permette di comunicare le impressioni che hanno della città e allo stesso tempo dare voce al loro espressione artistica. Uno studente in particolare ha descritto il suo lavoro finale come “se esprimesse un coeso sentimento di tranquillità”. Le piccole immagini 6×6 cm incoraggiano l’osservatore a guardare meglio- attirando l’attenzione a dettagli che andrebbero persi altrimenti. Firenze Piccolina rappresenta tutti i singoli pezzettini che rappresentano l’intera città.

This series of solo exhibitions is the unbiased result of different and creative minds focusing on critical contemporary themes. Like alchemists, these young photographers take the heavy lead of everyday life and turn it into gold. Through their transformative gaze, photography becomes a sharp, gilded blade able to cut into the very fabric of reality and reveal the tender, raw marrow of contemporary self-expression.

Neptune’s Child by Chloe Johnson

Neptune’s Child

by Chloe Johnson

AUF/FUA-AUF Photography Student

Neptune’s Child explores my idea of growing in confidence through a siren-esque character in three different stages of the process. The first chapter being false idealistic confidence, the version of the siren’s self she aspires to be, this identity only exists in her head. Chapter 2 showcases her confidence in her home in comfort clothes that hide her body. Although this version of herself is based in reality, the vulnerability and comfortability can only thrive in private without any judgment. The 3rd and final chapter is the siren out in the world embracing herself and the world around her. She is able to confidently wear clothes that hug her body in public. I chose to convey the theme of confidence through the siren character because of my affinity of water and mythology surrounding it. Sirens have been represented as beautiful alluring women residing near bodies of water. For me the siren represents this confidence I inspire to have.

Bio: Chloe Johnson is an American photography student currently earning her bachelor’s in photography at Virginia Commonwealth University and studying abroad at Florence University of The Arts for a semester. Born February 25 2002 in Dallas, Texas she grew up in Hillsborough, North Carolina.

Artist Statement:  My work as an artist focuses on highlighting black bodies, culture and women through fantasy and romantic ideas. Exploring black femininity in both traditional and non traditional aesthetics in order to expand our ideas of black womanhood. I use my work as a form of escapism creating stories and exploring personal themes through surrealist and fantasy aesthetics.

The Female Connection Artist by Lauren Vincent

The Female Connection Artist

by Lauren Vincent

AUF/FUA-AUF Photography Student

Maybe love stories were written about our friends.

Throughout the entirety of my life, through trials and tribulations, one thing has remained predominantly the strongest: my female friendships. Romantic love comes and goes. It never stays too long. But female friendships can last forever and are a constant reminder of love and support. 

There is also something special about the female connection; the way we hold space for each other is just different. Female friendship is divine. We care for each other in a tender and gentle way that is unlike any other type of relationship in the world. This divine femininity is present in all aspects of female friendship, but where I find it the most prominent is in the little moments. Whether it be through combing each other’s hair or painting nails, these small acts of femininity represent the core of all female friendships. In an effort to capture the delicate intimacy of female friendship, I created this series of photos as a love letter to all of the women in my life.  

Bio: Lauren Vincent is a third year honors student at the University of Colorado Boulder. She is pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography along with a double minor in Media Production and Art History. Lauren has published work in two exhibitions, La La and Untitled, both in Boulder, Colorado. Additionally, she was selected by the University of Colorado Art Board of Directors along with a small handful of students to continue her fine art practice at a higher level and earn a BFA degree. Lauren is 20 years old and grew up in Louisburg, Kansas, a rural small town 30 minutes south of Kansas City with a population of 4,000 people. Photography has been her passion since getting her first camera in middle school. From then on, her life has been a whirlwind of ingenuity and self-expression. In late middle school and early highschool she started out doing commercial freelance photography, such as weddings and senior portraits, but has since shifted into creating conceptual fine art photography series.

Artist Statement: I am in a constant state of motion sickness. The human experience is constantly changing and its uniqueness varies from person to person. This change and consistent movement of life is something that has been hard for me to stomach. I have found little to no ways in my mind to grasp this thought and process changing yet impactful events in time and my life. But, there is one method that has helped me find peace of mind within the world; Photography. Photography does something our minds cannot. Photography captures change and makes time completely static. Photography shapes my perspective of the world and allows me to tell my stories of the vast human experience and how it has impacted my life. I use portraiture and meticulously created sets to capture my journey with the movement of life, and to express my emotions derived from societal issues such as sexism and the male gaze, and personal events such as mental health crises, eating disorders, and my experience as a woman in the world. I use both mediums of digital photography and analog photography.

Grandparents of Mine

by Maeve Mugglebee

AUF Photography Student

As an ode to the abandoned grandchild, to the grandparents who were there, and everything in between, I am exploring the people who should hold their place. There is a disconnect, for me, between me and my grandparents, due to distance apart, intense family drama, degeneration, and premature death. The role of having someone in my life that is of another generation, beyond my parents’ generation, has been unfulfilled. Despite today’s political divide between generations, I find it significant to have someone older, almost as mentor, in life. 

Combined with the lack of that mentor figure, and the emotional loss and detachment of that part of the common family structure, I find myself looking for my grandparents everywhere. I watch older people walk in the street and wonder who they are, the significance of each wrinkle in their face, their existence at their stage in life. Even outside of my own family, the American way is to put our older generation away, to send them to homes and facilities where they are left, ignored, and forgotten. A beautiful aspect of my time in Italy has been to see that same forgotten generation, outside of their homes, taking walks, riding bikes, getting a coffee, socializing, and being an active part of society. This project is a portrait series dedicated to these people, to my own grandparents, and to the unresolved grandchild inside me.

Maeve Mugglebee is a 22 year-old photographer studying at the American University of Florence. Originally from Los Angeles, California, Maeve spent her childhood doing performing arts and discovered her passion for photography at the age of 13. She spent two years in Seattle, Washington working towards a double degree in International Studies and Photography and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, decided to continue her education abroad. In 2021, she moved to Florence to pursue a Career Certificate in Visual Communications with a specialization in Photography. Her work has gone from simple everyday shots to concert photography and portraiture, to travel and landscape photography, and she now continues to practice photography across all disciplines.

Tiny Florence

Firenze Piccolina

“Quando scatto delle foto, cerco di riprendere una scena che catturi la curiosità di chi osserva la foto… voglio che lo spettatore si chieda come potrebbe essere la vita per quella persona rappresentata, o quante persone hanno annusato quel fiore, o quanti hanno attraversato quella porta”

Firenze è una città che rimane fedele alle sue radici storiche ed è un hub per le voci contemporanee. La bellezza sta sia nel ricco patrimonio artistico della città che si può trovare nei suoi numerosi musei sia nelle sue strade ricolme d’arte e architettura degli ultimi cinque secoli. Questa miscela crea un ambiente stimolante che gli studenti FUA-AUF abbracciano nelle loro attività accademiche.

La mostra, realizzata dagli studenti di Introduction to Digital Photography, consiste in una selezione di stampe in bianco e nero 5×5 cm. Agli studenti è stato fornito questo formato specifico da seguire e poi è stato dato loro libero sfogo per interpretare ciò che Firenze rappresenta per loro. Questo mezzo offre l’opportunità di catturare i dettagli inaspettati della città.

Questo progetto curatoriale fa parte della più ampia missione FUA-AUF che mira a integrare studenti e comunità locale attraverso un processo di apprendimento esperienziale. Immergendosi nell’ambiente fiorentino, gli studenti hanno sviluppato un’opportunità unica per interagire con la comunità e sviluppare legami sociali e culturali.

“When I take pictures, I try to capture a moment that leaves a person intrigued in the subject … I want the viewer to wonder or have a sense of curiosity of what life may be like for that person or how many people have smelled that flower or walked through that doorway”

Florence is a city that stays true to its historical roots and is a hub for contemporary voices.  Beauty lies both in the city’s rich artistic heritage that can be found in its many museums and its streets showcasing art and architecture from the past five centuries. This blend creates a stimulating environment that FUA-AUF students embrace in their academic pursuits. 

The exhibition, created by Introduction to Digital Photography students, consists of a selection of 5×5 cm black and white prints of students’ work. These student photographers were given just this specific format to follow and then given free rein to interpret what Florence represents to them. This medium offers an opportunity to capture the raw details of the city. 

This curatorial project is part of the larger FUA-AUF mission that aims to integrate students and community through a process of experiential learning. Immersing themselves in the Florentine environment, the students developed a unique opportunity to engage with the local community and develop social and cultural connections. 

Spolvero: Fresco patterns – Past & present

Fresco patterns - Past & present

di Jean O'Reilly Barlow

This exhibition by Jean O’Reilly Barlow gives new life and beauty to artifacts that have gone forgotten. Her spolvero creations are embellished with precious gems and other natural materials, showcasing the acclaimed, centuries-old technique that Barlow has made her own. Her transformation of antiques into mesmerizing works of art rejuvenates them into a newfound context. Her pieces stand as a reminder to the viewer that there still exists beauty within the discarded and broken.

With beginnings as Ireland’s first supermodel, Jean O’Reilly Barlow is no stranger to an emphasis on aesthetics. Regarding her company, Interi, Barlow maintains the stance that the home is the highest gallery and should be adorned as such. She favors the process of spolvero, an art form that uses the transference technique of “pouncing” an image from one surface to another using a fine powder. Jean O’Reilly Barlow employs this 15th-century practice to “salvage the sacred” with this collection. She believes the fragments discovered in these Italian ecclesiastical structures hold great potential to be made beautiful again and highlight the pieces’ “pure, natural beauty.”

This exhibition is part of Jean’s ongoing collaboration with Florence University of the Arts – The American University of Florence in a comprehensive and engaging project that provides FUA and AUF students with a look into the abandoned realms of Italian art history. Jean’s interest in the well-being of her surrounding community complements FUA-AUF’s mission to provide students with an educational model based on experiential learning, cultural integration, and engagement with local Florence.

“OMO” di Paride Moretti

OMO di Paride Moretti

“OMO” di Paride Moretti

The title of the exhibition refers to a fragment of Dante’s literary work. In the XXIII Canto of Purgatory, the Poet mentions a widespread opinion among medieval moralists, according to which the letters O, M, and O could be recognized in the structure of the human face: the eyebrows and the nose form a kind of “M”, while the eyes, as was the style of the time, give rise to the two “O’s” contained within the two loops of the “M”. The visual language and the verbal language, the image and the word, are a communicative game already known in ancient times and widely exploited in the contemporary world.

The genesis of these illustrations resembles that of childhood doodles. They emerge without a precise intention, as a spontaneous practice of relaxation and contemplation. The graphic gesture is the tool that leads to places of inner reflection, to the treasure of symbols and images that animate the profound stages of human existence. But unlike the inner universe of children, that of us adults is populated not only by images, but also by words and concepts. The game of combining language becomes complex; what began as a liberating, childish gesture turns into a search for meaning.

Paride Moretti (born in 1972 in Grosseto) graduated in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and is a member of the academic staff at the University of the Arts in Florence. He is passionate about drawing and graphics and is the author of illustrated tables and artists’ books. A hobby that inevitably influences his work is wandering through antiquarian bookstores to peruse out-of-print or collectors’ editions in search of editorial curiosities as well as thoughts and influences outside of mainstream culture.

Scatti senza Meta di Alessandra Pagliai

Scatti senza Meta

di Alessandra Pagliai

Mostra fotografica

We look at the world once, in childhood. The rest is memory.
[Louise Gluck]

This exhibition is brought to us by Alessandra Pagliai, a local artist of Florence, who gives us a glimpse into how she sees our world. Scatti Flaneuse is the art of casual walking, exploration with no expectations. Her photography captures the city in three different states of rain, shadows, and puddles. She prefers to shoot spontaneously, letting the atmosphere influence her photography. All images displayed were taken on the camera of her Samsung cellphone.

Alessandra is also a journalist, painter, and potter. Her aim is to capture light, a fascination she’s had since adolescence. Offering us 50x70cm and 17x12cm photographs, she invites us to explore our inner child, as well as take a journey into her passion for the outdoors, for its opportunities for encounters and unpredictableness. To keep the authenticity of her photographs, she never plans a photo, but rather lets the photo come to her.

Alessandra first encountered this space when she had coffee at Fedora, instantly being reminded of a classic Giorgio Vasari gallery, and contacted Florence University of the Arts to showcase her own artwork in collaboration with the school. As students of FUA/AUF curating this exhibition, our goal is to interact with the local community in a hands-on environment, enriching our education both through immersing ourselves in the culture, as well as first hand experience in the world of art. Working with Alessandra, we received so much insight to her artistic process that we aimed to bring to life.

Miniscule Moments and Unique Angles of “La Bella”

To capture the candid beauty of Florence and its inhabitants, FUA-AUF students photographed natural interactions between people and the landscape, in order to revitalise their observation skills and appreciation of the “little” things.


Tiny Florence is a curated collection of 5cm x 5cm black and white images, photographed by students taking the “Introduction to Street Photography” course.

“If I weren’t taking this class, I wouldn’t be looking around intentionally. I feel inspired to explore less popular areas, and am exploring my environment through the perspective of how to frame it best.”

LEGGEREZZA

di Laura Fauzzi

Florence University of the Arts – The American University of Florence is honored to present the work and talents of Laura Fauzzi. She is a Swedish-based, self-taught artist who has refined her art here in Florence. From the young age of 13, Fauzzi has had a deep connection with art and the beauty of creating movement. To Fauzzi, making art is a meditative practice that she uses to find lightness in moments of hardship. During this meditative process, she listens to the sounds of the waves on the sea, using their rhythm to control her breaths and the flow of her hand. Fauzzi takes these heavy emotions and transforms them into works filled with light and peace.

The visual aspects of Fauzzi’s work are reminiscent of her love for dance and yoga. The figures she illustrates reflect this through their motion and fluidity. The viewer is then able to connect with Fauzzi’s creative energy, feeling and experiencing the movement projected in her art. When interacting with her work, Fauzzi desires for the viewer to express and acknowledge any and all emotions they may be experiencing, as well as leave with a tangible sense of peace and joy.

Fauzzi discovered the gallery at FUA-AUF by pure chance one afternoon while wandering the streets of Florence. The inviting atmosphere of Corridoio Fiorentino immediately caught her eye, drawing her into the space. Because of this, FUA-AUF now has the wonderful opportunity of showcasing her artwork in this exhibition. We are incredibly excited to invite Laura Fauzzi’s energy and persona into the gallery, and for the community to appreciate her incredible artwork.

FUA-AUF è onorata di esporre le opere dell’incantevole Laura Fauzzi, un’artista autodidatta di origine svedese che ha perfezionato la sua arte qui a Firenze. Fin dalla giovane età di tredici anni, Laura ha coltivato una profonda connessione con l’arte e con la bellezza di creare movimento. Fare arte è per lei una pratica meditativa, che utilizza per trovare leggerezza nei momenti di difficoltà. Durante questo processo, Laura ascolta il suono delle onde del mare e usa il loro ritmo per controllare i suoi respiri e il flusso della sua mano. Attraverso il processo di creazione, Laura trasforma le sue emozioni pesanti in opere piene di luce e pace.

Gli aspetti visivi del lavoro di Laura ricordano il suo amore per la Danza e per lo Yoga. Le figure che illustra riflettono questa passione attraverso il loro movimento e la loro fluidità, movimento che –  proiettato sull’osservatore –  permette di connettersi con l’energia che Laura sente quando crea. Quando interagisce con le sue opere Laura desidera che lo spettatore esprima e riconosca tutte le emozioni che sta vivendo, e che se ne vada con un senso tangibile di pace e gioia.

Laura ha scoperto la galleria di FUA-AUF per puro caso, un pomeriggio, mentre vagava per le strade di Firenze. Le piante e l’atmosfera del Corridoio Fiorentino hanno immediatamente catturato la sua attenzione, attirandola in quello spazio. Per questo motivo ora abbiamo la meravigliosa opportunità di esporre le sue opere: siamo veramente onorati di ospitare la sua energia e la sua personalità nella galleria attraverso le sue opere.

La carne delle piante

di Aurora Bresci

This exhibition by Aurora Bresci invites us to connect with the natural world. Aurora is a Livorno and Florence based artist and her work will be on display from April 11 to May 2, 2024. Her favorite technique is oil painting, which she has perfected and experimented with during her academic studies. However, Aurora has been pushing herself to explore and combine other mediums, such as the painted wooden sculptures that are being exhibited. 

To create her sculptures, Aurora uses found wood from the sea in Livorno. Aurora describes this lengthy process as a “jigsaw puzzle” that requires research and experimentation. The oil paintings in this exhibition range from 24 x 19 cm to 110 x 110 cm. Her sculptures as well as her works in oil paint seek to explore the relationship between humanity and the environment. In all, Aurora’s work aims to promote the discovery and protection of natural spaces. 

The plants and atmosphere of the Corridoio Fiorentino directly interact with Aurora’s artwork and message. To bring this exhibition to life, Aurora worked in direct collaboration with students and instructors from FUA-AUF participating in the experiential learning program. This learning opportunity allows students to become immersed in Italian art culture while engaging with the Florentine community, as the program’s mission intends.

La mostra di Aurora Bresci ci invita a entrare in contatto con il mondo naturale, le sue opere saranno esposte dall’11 aprile al 2 maggio 2024 presso il Corridoio Fiorentino. La sua tecnica preferita è la pittura a olio, che ha perfezionato e sperimentato durante gli studi universitari.

Tuttavia, Aurora si è spinta a esplorare e combinare altri mezzi, come le sculture in legno dipinto presenti nell’esposizione, realizzate utilizzando legno proveniente dal litorale tirrenico. Le sue sculture e le sue opere a olio cercano di esplorare il rapporto tra l’umanità e l’ambiente. Le piante e l’atmosfera del Corridoio Fiorentino interagiscono direttamente con le opere e il messaggio dell’Artista.

Per dar vita a questa mostra, Aurora ha lavorato in diretta collaborazione con gli studenti e gli istruttori di FUA-AUF che partecipano al programma di “Experiential Learning”, opportunità di apprendimento che consente agli studenti di immergersi nella cultura artistica italiana e di confrontarsi con la comunità fiorentina.

Tiny Florence – Summer 2024

“When people view my photos, I want them to feel a sense of familiarity, longing, and comfort all at once. I aim to capture the small details and moments that bring life to the mundane. My hope is that my pictures evoke a sense of nostalgia, resonating with the viewer’s own cherished memories.” – Isabel Brooke Seldes, Introduction to Digital Photography Student

“I am fascinated with the pigeons of Florence. Some look similar, but most are very different compared to the ones we have in America. Each one has a unique feather pattern with strange colors. I had never seen a brown or spotted pigeon until I came to Italy.” – Maya Stewart, Intermediate Landscape and Architectural Photography Student

Firenze Piccolina” – Tiny Florence is an intimate photographic journey. Shared through the eyes of FUA-AUF students enrolled in Introduction to Photography, and Intermediate Landscape and Architectural Photography classes. These photographs capture the essence of Florence in a series of 6 cm x 6 cm black-and-white snapshots. The students have reached deeper, beyond the typical Florentine experience, seeking beauty in the unseen and overlooked. 

Tiny Florence is meant to challenge the audience to find splendor in simplicity, and to take a moment to reflect on the smaller moments that are often overshadowed by the city’s famed landmarks. Each image pays homage to the individuality of the city’s character, through themes such as its people, the Arno River, buildings, statues, and all the oddities in between. The layout of this exhibition invites potential viewers to come in and observe, and to recognize how the display alludes to the familiar Florentine aspects they hold dear to their hearts. In both content and display, the exhibition is a tribute to Florence’s timeless identity.

These students have learned not only to observe their world closely, but also to connect with it. They have fostered a deeper understanding of the world that surrounds them and engaged on a higher level within the community through their close study of the city and its people. FUA-AUF promotes and renews creative disciplines in a city renowned for its historic innovations, by enriching students through cultural integration, community engagement, and experiential learning. This exhibition is not just a display of skill, but part of their story. Each photograph is a tiny (piccolina) chapter of their time in Florence.
