Any recommendations for a school for an adult woman over 50 in Italy this July? Language and or art and or music and or cooking. Florence? elsewhere? Michelangelo school in Florence?

Michelangelo school (note: this guy has been a client of mine for a long time, and I've known him for even longer. His sculpture style is historic, though, and he's in Florence, teaching, so I couldn't not link him).

I went with a school through Apple Languages in 2006 and had an excellent time. There were people of all ages and nationalities in the course and all seemed to enjoy it. From what I can tell, their facilities seem to be high quality, their teachers good (native speakers always, I think?), and they have a fantastic selection of locations.

I've seen articles (and long for) mosaic classes in Ravenna. I haven't investigated too much because I know I am not near able to afford it, only that I know they are offered frequently and they do it old world style (using hammer and hardie). Maybe one day.....sigh. :)

I went on one of Istituto Venezia's programs over New Year's a few years ago; there were language classes in the mornings and culture lessons/excursions in the afternoons and evenings. I've heard that Venice is unpleasant and crowded in the summer, but this school also has a Trieste location which might be better for the time of year.
