American Scholars Found Love in Florence

Robert Tyson (‘15, Business) and Anna Castellano (’16, Art History) share a unique love story. The two met while studying abroad with FSU’s International Program in Florence in 2013. While in Florence, they both happened to be living at the Vespucci Residence. Both Robert and Anna credit study abroad with helping them grow as individuals, deepen their world view, and develop their communication skills as well as their love for travel.

Their passion for Florence and the impact that it has had in shaping their lives runs deep in their garnet and gold veins. So much so, that when Robert decided to pop the question he knew he had to do it where it all began. Their wedding will take place on October 10, 2022.

The gift of experiential learning and love has inspired Robert and Anna to fund a scholarship for students in need to broaden their horizons through study abroad experiences in Florence.

In lieu of wedding gifts, the couple is selflessly asking friends and family to help support their passion of inspiring others to study abroad.


To make a gift in honor of Robert and Anna’s love, please support this project.
