A workshop on fresco painting in the center of Italy is a wonderful opportunity.
A chance to relive the distant atmosphere of the “Botteghe d’Arte” of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
A very special book will accompany us during the theoretical part: “Il Libro d’Arte” by the Florentine painter Cennino Cennini (1370 - 1427). It is the first art book that deals with various techniques in depth. Written in ancient Italian (and translated in more than ten languages), it describes the knowledge of pigments, the production of tools, techniques of oil painting, fresco painting and miniatures. It also offers advice and secrets from the “Botteghe d’Arte” of medieval Florence.
In "our Bottega d’Arte" we will make pigments, get to know their history and experiment, following the medieval technique.
In the afternoon, each participant devotes him/herself to creating a personal fresco that he / she can take home at the end of the course.
Previous knowledge is not required; it is enough to be curious and enthusiastic to make a new encounter with an old technique.
Plan your arrival for 3rd of July. We start with welcome drinks and dinner around 19:00 pm.
The following five days consist of morning and afternoon workshops, closing at 17:00 on 8th of July.
