Overview

Live, learn and create in one of the world’s richest capitals of culture and fine art.

Picture yourself living in a guest house behind a castle fortress, around the corner from St. Peter’s Square and the Sistine Chapel. Trying your hand at a range of applied art techniques, from ancient to contemporary. Taking Italian cooking and singing classes or playing pickup soccer in your spare time. With the Vatican Museums 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 studios. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to dabble, experiment, and apply what you learn in hands-on workshops. Train in millennia-old techniques like mosaic design and fresco painting. 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 fine arts — both past and present.
