Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Tuscania is a small, idyllic Italian town located ninety minutes north of Rome on the border of Lazio and Tuscany. Tuscania has been admired for centuries for its picturesque setting, fine culture and foods, medieval walls, and cobblestoned streets. Surrounded by medieval walls and guard towers, Tuscania provides endless opportunities for authentic cultural immersion. Some of the most beautiful churches in Italy are in Tuscania, including the stunning San Pietro and the magnificent Santa Maria Maggiore. Tuscania is an ideal combination between the present and past. It is not uncommon to find a medieval section of wall in the wine cellar of a modern restaurant or an Etruscan tomb used as the basement storage area of an apartment. The strong connection of the locals to their traditions, history, and folklore greatly influences the unique nature of the town.
API students have the opportunity to study abroad in Tuscania at Lorenzo de’ Medici – The Italian International Institute in Tuscania (LdM). Founded in 1973 in Florence, LdM is committed to helping students realize their potential, providing high-quality education that enables students to interact successfully with other cultures. Lorenzo de’ Medici opened in Tuscania in 2004, an ideal city and place to inspire the creative, intellectual and personal development of each student. The school is situated in the old town center within the stone medieval walls. This building has recently been remodeled to feature modern, light-filled studios and classrooms. API students are engaged in the study of the humanities, social sciences, studio arts, media studies and Italian language with other committed students who seek to learn and to explore Italy in a comprehensive way. API invites students to discover the essence of Italy while studying and living in beautiful and historic Tuscania.
“I am really happy I found the API Tuscania program because I feel that it provided me with a unique cultural experience. I loved being in a small town because it was easier to meet and converse with locals and get a better sense of Italian culture. Having access to big cities, but having a main base in a smaller town, was a perfect balance for me."
API students in Tuscania have the opportunity to give back to their local community through various volunteer projects, including teaching English at a local elementary school, serving as local tour guides, and working at the public library.
