Italy has an artistic and historical heritage of outstanding importance, covering a very long period of time, and which has often conditioned the art of other countries. This system of monuments, churches and museums represents a point of reference for anyone involved or interested in the world of art. Valorising and making these assets available requires the intervention of professionals who can boast a training in which the historical and artistic knowledge is balanced with technical and scientific skills as well as high operational skills.

Through the two-week summer course that Accademia di Belle Arti 'Aldo Galli' offers, you have the opportunity to learn how to give new life to paintings on canvas and on wood, according to the criteria of contemporary restoration.
