    Me encantó la experiencia. Me encantó trabajar con el maestro artesano en restauración de muebles. Aprendí mucho. Siempre me proveyeron información completa sobre el curso y el apartamento donde me iba a quedar. La estadía en el apartamento asignado también fue bien placentera.

    Una de las mejores experiencias que tuve. !!! Sí bien a mí la restauración me encanta, en este curso pude adquirir más herramientas y práctica para seguir aprendiendo. Enrico fue fundamental para este curso, ya que es una persona con una calidez humana como pocas, siempre esforzadose para poder explicar, entender y que el curso sea perfecto. Florencia es una ciudad mágica, realmente encantadora que enamora! Haber realizado el curso allí fue un sueño cumplido. Gracias por brindarle a las personas como yo esta posibilidad de aprender y por estar siempre dispuestos a brindarnos todo lo que esté a su alcance, por su organización y poder conciliar todo a tiempo. Excelente orgnizacion

    Estoy muy contenta con el curso de restauración de muebles que he realizado. El restaurador me ha enseñado muchas técnicas y muchos “trucos” a la hora de restaurar. Indudablemente esto se consigue con experiencia y profesionalidad. La organización del curso también me ha encantado. Todo muy bien organizado. Volveré a Florencia y haré otro curso . Gracias

  5. Peter

    I found the course definitely useful, Enrico is a good teacher and very nice guy. In spite of my poor Italian he managed to make me understand everything.

    The only thing that not that positive is the limited time, there is a lot to learn, I think in any of these courses. But it was a good introduction for furniture restoration for sure.

    The accommodation was good, landlady was nice, too.

    Thank you for everything,
