What a fabulous experience! I learnt a lot, met great people, saw wonderful places. Thoroughly enjoyable. I look forward to doing another one in a not too distant future.

"One of the best holidays and learning experiences I have had in my life. A thought-provoking, reflective, and inspirational short time that I would dearly love to repeat".

(Scanlan, Sydney, Australia, Studio Italia 2013)



I came back amazed with the country and the art (food and drawing). I would do it all over again but stay longer; I enjoyed it that much.
