University of Florence, Firenze, IT, Masters, Senior Architect

I said that I've a master degree because my course lasted 5 years. In Italy were different from the USA.
All the branches of architecture , from structure to urban planning to design (5 courses) History of art industrial design and so on were on my programme.
During my University years , I had a car accident that kept my away from school, then I worked for two years on a technical drawing book, and finally returned to school and finished my studies.
I'm telling this 'cause it could apper as if i were a lazy student, but actually the long time spent in school is due to teh above facts.
