Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma
The Academy of Fine Arts of Rome originates from the “Accademia di San Luca”, born at the end of the Sixteenth century and which became the papal seat for artistic studies, in fact it is one of the oldest Academies in Italy.
Strong in its history and facing the future, the Academy has the aim to prepare students to live in the today’s art world, as artists but also as curators, critics, specialized workers for museums, designers, stylists and, of course, web and graphic designers.
For this reason many avant-garde courses have been added at the classical ones, building one of the most innovative didactic offers. The entire “Campo Boario” headquarters was built specifically to host computer, photography and new media lessons and recently, following the activation of the joint Master with the Sapienza University, specific laboratories for digital animation were also provided.
On the other hand, in the historical building of Via di Ripetta specialized ateliers for painting, sculpting and engraving are hosted.
A great importance is also placed in opening up opportunities for further growth and employment for graduates. In fact the Academy is conceived as a meeting point for students and important figures of the global art world, hosting conferences, workshops and exhibitions of the students’ and of important international artists’ works in the exhibition hall, named “Sala Colleoni”.
