Introducing the SACI Alumni website:
More than 11,000 aspiring artists have passed through the doors of Studio Art Centers International (SACI), an American college level studio art program founded in Florence, Italy in 1975.
At the new website, you can find SACI alumni updates, interviews, events, school news, and a range of professional resources and opportunities.
SACI alumni have gone on to do fascinating work around the world. From getting back in touch with old friends to exhibition announcements and career opportunities, we invite alumni to share and interact with each other in this space, make contributions and posts, and nuture an interactive space that links former SACI students around the globe.

The mission of the SACI Alumni Association is to maintain the connections forged during undergraduate and graduate study in Florence and help them flourish. We aim to provide support and resources for former students who have had the unique experience of directly accessing centuries of Italian culture, and hope that they will work with us to build a bridge into the future of the school.
The institution was founded by painter Jules Maidoff, whose goal was to offer the finest and most challenging training to the next generation of artists, art historians, and art conservators, as well as the opportunity to live out a full, first-hand immersion within Florentine culture and customs.
