About This Center

Our Mission is to educate, inspire and support the Architects of an Infinite New Reality!

We have created a production company: Infinite Human Productions to produce and distribute work that raises the consciouness of the planet. (contact info blocked)


Outside our door, one of the most beautiful and inspiring cities in the world awaits your discovery! Art Treasures, Architectural Wonders, High Fashion, Excellent Cuisine and the warmth of the famed Italian "Dolce Vita"!


Come experience your own personal rebirth in the city that gave birth to the Renaissance and the Age of Enlightenment!  Students will receive inspiration both personally, professionally and artistically from the vast wealth of Art and Creative Energy that fuels Florence’s thriving creative community of writers, musicians, actors, artists and film makers. Students will be challenged to create fresh and original work that captures the soul of their audience and communicates their highest visions for humanity!  Students will be mentored by our international staff of Professional Film Makers and intern on Professional Productions.

Like Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Dante, Giotto, and the other great masters of the past Renaissance whose creative vision and realized artistic accomplishments pulled the world out of the dark ages into the age of enlightenment, we are now in need of creative pioneers to bring our emerging global community up into a new age of Enlightenment! Let the works of their creative genius inspire you to develop your professional skills and unique voice in film production, new media and performance art to better communicate your personal vision to humanity!

Isn't it time to be part of the New Global Renaissance?

      extremely disappointing :(

    I enrolled in this school a few years ago. Left my home to move to Florence for a year to get my master degree in filmmaking. I arrived in Florece, and the school did not really seem to exist the way it was shown to me on the website beforehand. I was very disappointed. I had to go to Elizabeths personal apartment for lessons and had to google how to write a script on my own. I didnt have access to any computers or cameras and had no teachers except for her. And she didnt teach me anything. At the end, I was so disappointed that I wanted to quit. I asked for my money back because I was fooled by the website at the beginning, but didnt get any of it back, and didnt get my personal belongings back from the aparmtnet either. Turned out it wasnt a proper film school as I had assumed to begin with. Ended up wasting a lot of time and A LOT of money :(

    Please be aware that The New Renaissance Florence Film school is not a school, it's a SCAM. There are no classrooms, not teachers, no students and no professionalism. Only one lady, Elizabeth Monroy and her little flat. She sells the creation from the Soul but doesn't let any of my creativity flow, she tried to control everything. If my art wasn't going her way she put me under a lot of pressure, using a "greenlight". If I didn't followed her choices she would have stop my project when I have paid 4 000 euros for it, for nothing actually. All along the process I could not tell my feelings, afraid of her behaviours. It was difficult for me to deal with her instability and impulsivity. She has no passion so she is in the incapacity to understand any artist. She is focused only in money, and all what matters for her is the marketing what she dares to call a school. 4 000 euros is a lot of money and I had to save for such a long time for it. I have never had an invoice for the money I have paid. She has never gave me the materials of my project that I have hardly finished without her help, so I needed up with nothing! Her excuses were that she has helped me more than enough in my life. I don't know how she can fell like she has helping me while she actually used me, that the terrible part of it. I wish to no one, the experience that I had, and that to enter into her dark world. She won my trust with lies about myself, things she has invented and she used it against me. Spirituality takes such a negative connotation while meeting people like her. But it what she is using to be able to bring people to her. Please be careful. Kindly, Sarah
