  1. Rafael Codony

    Este curso ha sido para mí una oportunidad magnífica de conocer Florencia y todo su arte en profundidad. Y personalmente este curso de dibujo me ha proporcionado una gran mejora en mis conocimientos técnicos y un gran estímulo para trabajarlos en el futuro. Además valoró mucho el trabajo de mi profesora que da una gran libertad para desarrollar tu estilo propio y una buena diversidad de técnicas. Humanamente el trato ja sido excelente

    Drawing has always been my passion and when my parents gave me this course as a graduation present, I could not wait for the day in which I would travel to Italy. Once there, all I can say is that I did not want it to end. Florence is a dream, the course was amazing, I met many lovely people both at the school and in the flat that I shared with other students. Thank you Federica and all the team at Studiainitalia for your support and attention. Come visit me in Melbourne. Arrivederci!
