    Picture yourself living in the heart of the city, right around the corner from the famous “wedding cake” white monument in Piazza Venezia and only 10 minutes walking distance from the Colosseum; trying your hand at a range of applied art techniques, from ancient to contemporary; taking Italian cooking lessons to prepare and enjoy scrumptious meals; or playing pick-up soccer or volleyball in your spare time. 

    With the Colosseum in your neighborhood and Rome as your classroom, you’ll be completely immersed in the city’s dazzling culture. 

    Lectures on Rome’s rich artistic history come alive through inspiring classes held onsite in museums and  archaeological sites. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to apply and experiment with what you learn in hands-on workshops. Train in millennia-old methods of art production like mosaic design and Michelangelo’s own fresco painting technique. Then move through the ages to photography and filmmaking. Along the way, learn first-hand about the artists and creative processes that led to Rome’s legacy as a world center of art and architecture — both past and present.
