Art conservator Rossella Lari with a student.
Students participating in the Florence: Arts, Humanities, & Culture program are getting the chance to engage in a Florentine tradition that stretches back to antiquity and has been fundamental to the remarkable artistic output for which the city is so famous.
Masters & Workshops, an elective course offered by the program for the first time this fall, places students with master artisans for hands-on training. The class also includes an independent study project (ISP) in which the students explore the history behind those artistic disciplines.
Four students are studying and practicing techniques for restoring paintings with Rossella Lari, one of Florence's most prominent art conservators. Three others are learning about making jewelry under the tutelage of master goldsmiths Carlo and Simone Bandini in their family-run workshop. Read more
