Language (10 hours weekly)
In class, your teacher will hold seminars on individual artists or periods in the history of Art to introduce you to the specific vocabulary. You could take a course on “Michelangelo: painter, sculptor and architect”, “Etruscan art” or “Byzantine mosaics of Ravenna”. You will also learn more about the themes and artists chosen, by viewing film footage, photographs and other material.
Workshop (10 hours weekly)
These are activities linked to the subject discussed in the morning. You will visit places and monuments relating to the period or artist you are studying: the archaeological museum, Art Gallery (Pinacoteca), the frescoes of Francesco Francia and Lorenzo Costa, sculptures by Alfonso Lombardi, Niccolò dell’Arca and Michelangelo, Roman and Gothic architecture in the many Bolognese churches, and the workshops of lutemakers and ceramicists.
You can choose to visit one of the following cities of art:
Venice, unique for its fascinating atmosphere
Florence, cradle of the Italian Renaissance
Modena, with its splendid cathedral
Parma, ancient city of dukes
Ravenna, with its magnificent mosaics
Faenza, with its famous art ceramics
If you wish, you could have a lesson in a craft workshop and try your hand at pottery or watercolour-painting, just to finish off your total immersion into the world of art. You will be given all the information about exhibitions, museums, craft-shops and workshops of the town and its surroundings.
