Internatl art communities in Italy?

by __-__

Italy thrives on art. Florence burgeons with art schools, art students and painters who share the flats and live in the Tuscan countryside just outside Florence - its not big on urban sprawl. There are summer program, long term programs, you can extend atelier study beyond the typical 3 to 4 years and end up teaching there if you've got what it takes. Similar programs in North Umbria etc.
As far as communal living? That's not exactly what's happening. People are more communal there - tend to focus on socialization outside small apartments - not big on material possessions. But I never heard of any art communes and if there are, I'm not sure the international body of artists are going to be what you want
