Roger Williams University’s Florence study abroad program includes classroom, art studio and design review space at the Palazzo Rucellai, a landmark of the Renaissance designed by the renowned humanist and architect Leon Battista Alberti and erected between 1446 and 1451. One of the oldest and most prestigious historical residences in Florence, the Palazzo holds an important place in the city's patrimony. It has been home to the Rucellai family for over 500 years and the family continues to occupy portions of the building.

Located a short walk across the Ponte Vecchio is the Architecture program’s spacious studio space at the Palazzo Alamanni, which includes design studio space for 26 students, review spaces, a computer lab and library located around a garden courtyard.
