Analysis of the most representative works of the "Italian school", by Giotto, Michelangelo, Raphael, and many other renowned painters and artists. Ancient techniques are adapted to modern instruments and materials, and rendered practicable by the students. The fresco technique involves the spreading of layers of plaster on a canvas, drawing with charcoal and finally painting using natural pigments.
This laboratory calls for at least 16 hours’ attendance + 1 guided tour of an artistic site for the monographic section (for example, the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua for Giotto).
The photography laboratory takes place at the school, around the city of Verona and in the studio of a famous local photographer. The student, after attending a theoretical course on the semiology of the image, will, under the guidance of the teacher, put into practice the photographic techniques that he/she has learned. The student will also learn the principal techniques for printing artistic photographs. Professional cameras are not required.
This laboratory calls for a minimum of 40 hours’ attendance, made up of one or two lessons a week.
FOOD AND WINE
CREATIVE LABORATORIES - COOKING CLASSES
Cooking and tasting the typical dishes of Italian cuisine and in particular that of the Veneto, the Region in which Verona is located. Students take part personally in the preparation of the recipes (gnocchi, tortelli, tortellini, risottos, pasta, boiled meats with pearà sauce, etc.). Each lesson concludes with the pleasurable experience of a luncheon or dinner, during which students will be able to enjoy what they have cooked, perhaps even accompanying it with local wines.
A sensorial and cultural course to find out about the exceptional wines produced in the Veneto Region. A sommelier will guide students through tastings and visits to the vineyards and wineries that produce the world-famous Amarone and Recioto della Valpolicella, Soave, Bardolino and other types of wines, including Prosecco and other sparkling wines.
This laboratory may also include walks offering a chance to sample wine and food in the historic osterie and wine bars of the city centre, or in the most highly-reputed wineries in the Province of Verona.
