Situated on five acres of formal gardens, park, and woodlands only ten minutes from the center of Florence, the villa was equipped to serve the needs of a modern educational institution while retaining the atmosphere and advantages of a country home. With a beautiful view of the Tuscan hills which surround Florence, the Torre di Gattaia's setting is equal to its facilities, which include a large salon, a library and reading room, terraces, dormitory rooms and dining hall, classrooms, a studio theatre, art studios, science laboratory, and delightful grounds. Also on campus are a modern dance and gymnastics room and an outdoor swimming pool.

Some faculty members lived in residence on the campus, providing a unique opportunity for an intimate sense of cooperation with students in academic, cultural, and social activities. Students could choose to live in residence in the villa or to live off campus in approved pensions or with specially selected families in Florence.

Fleming College was a two-year coeducational program that granted an Associate of Arts degree. Originally founded in Lugano, Switzerland in 1968, the College relocated to Florence, Italy in 1972 to Torre Di Gattaia, just off Viale Michelangelo on a hill above the city.

Fleming College Florence incorporated the Institute for European Culture, a one-year, pre-college program previously located in Lugano, Switzerland. The College was a division of T.A.S.I.S. (The American School in Switzerland), an American educational institution based in Lugano that was founded in 1956. T.A.S.I.S. continues today with campuses in Lugano, Surrey, England and Puerto Rico (see www.tasis.com). Ultimately, Fleming College closed its doors in the late 1970's.
