Lucia Cossari

Resident Director in Florence, Italy

Lucia Cossari is an Italian born in Switzerland. She spent many years immersed in both German and Italian culture and is bilingual in both languages. Lucia moved to the south of Italy at the age of 12 where she received her high school diploma in languages. During this period she became more familiar with the aspects of living abroad, which strengthened her belief that knowing many languages is the way to improve the personal, spiritual and cultural background of people. Lucia received her degree in Foreign Languages and Literature from the Università degli Studi di Firenze and speaks English, French, Italian and German. Before joining ISA, Lucia taught Italian Language, worked with an import/export company as well as 4-5 stars Hotels. She enjoys sharing her unique experiences with ISA students.
