Painting restoration course in Florence

(8 customer reviews)


Our oil painting restoration courses in Italy are not held in a school but in the restorer’s workshop. A place where you will learn quickly, followed in each step of your learning.

The course is available for beginners or advanced students. You can book sets of 24 hours.

The basic programme includes:

• Aspects of the concept of restoration

• Study of the nature of the painting

• Practice in preparation of the supports in accordance with traditional techniques (canvas and board)

• Consolidation techniques

• Re-framing techniques

• Techniques of pictorial integration

Courses are one to one and held in Italian; since lessons are individual, the programme can be adapted to your own requests. You can also apply for an interpretation service.

Our painting restoration course is held in a real workshop “bottega” in Florence.

Do you know why we do not offer this course in a restoration school? Because the bottega is the most advisable place for a quick, practical and immersive learning, even if you are a beginner!

The workshop is located in the historic centre of Florence.

Courses are open to all levels and they are one to one.

    I really enjoyed those days in Florence when I went to work with Mrs. Elena Giannetti. Inspiring moments and hours in her studio.

  2. Lab Frédérique (verified owner)

    Fascinating experience : living for a while in Firenze, and going to Mrs’ Elena Giannetti laboratorio every day. I enjoyed every minute of it, and I am grateful to Mrs Giannetti for the inspiring moments spent together.

  3. Sana Rizwan (verified owner)

    It was the most memorable learning trip with Studiainitalia. The whole trip was very well organised with a renowned school in florence.
    I didn’t face any difficulties and I was given the best experienced instructor for restoration of painting by the school.
    Keep up the good work!
    Thank you Ms Elena for teaching me whole heartedly, Ms Anne for my stay in their lovely apartment, Helen for managing everything in florence, Federica for all the necessary conversation and arrangements , Pina for her assistance , and Raquel for making me learn Italian and translating all difficult words in a simple way and to the whole team of studiainitalia
    for all your effort you put throughout this time.
    Warm regards

    ¡Para mi la experiencia que éste gran curso me dejó, fue, increíblemente bueno y excelente, aún cuando no podría expresarlo con sólo 2 palabras! Entré como una principiante al curso de Restauración, (pues no sabía nada,nada), y salí con una gran cantidad de aprendizajes, tanto prácticos, como teóricos. Esta super completo el curso. Había planeado sólo tomar las primeras horas, pero tanto había que aprender de las clases de Elena Giannetti que decidí expandir mis lecciones a mucho más, y las hubiera vuelto a expandir si hubiese tenido más tiempo. ¡Una profesora magnífica, su forma de enseñar, su paciencia, su dedicación, su talento y sobre todo la gran persona que ella es hicieron de éste curso lo más placentero en mi estancia en Florencia! ¡Así como también agradezco la gran atención de todo el personal de Studiainitalia, quienes en todo momento estuvieron atentas para ayudarme aún a muy larga distancia, y me consiguieron también el mejor hospedaje con una mujer muy agradable – Ana María! ¡No sin olvidar que tuve también a una traductora increíble para la 1era clase – Raquel! Gracias Elena Giannetti, Federica, Lara, Pina, Ana María y Raquel … por esto y más…

    Buenos días,
    Hace una semana participé en el curso de restauración de cuadros en Firenze, en el taller de Elena Giannetti. La experiencia fue magnífica, pues combinamos teoría y práctica. Aunque el curso de dos semanas se queda un poco corto para estudiar las diversas técnicas, fue suficiente para conocer los procedimientos básicos de la restauración. Me hubiera gustado que fuera más práctico, y no tan teórico, pero de cualquier modo la experiencia fue inolvidable.
    Muchas gracias.

    Hola Federica: recien acabo de llegar a argentina nuevamente, te comento que todo fue magnifico, desde el alojamiento la señora Laura una excelente anfitriona, al principio no entendia como un señor grande podia ir a la scola como ella le decia pero en realidad hice un laboratorio de lujo con Elena, a quien, tambien debo fellicitar por su profesionalismo y calidez. Debo mencionar tambien a Pina que con su mejor sonrrisa me recibio. Como veras volvi encantado y, espero, mejor aprendido. un gra abrazo y gracias por todo.Ernesto
