Ancient knowledge of art and craftsmanship. Art workshops and workshops.


The ancient crafts of art and craftsmanship represent a precious heritage of knowledge, “know-how with hands” and beauty that should not only be preserved but also transmitted. The Municipality of Arezzo, the Arezzo Intour Foundation, and the Arezzo Comunità Foundation have renovated the historic building on Via Pellicceria in the city’s old town, transforming it into the “Training Hub for Immaterial Economies” and dedicating a room to specific art workshops for adults.
The calendar of events we propose offers workshops and meetings to introduce participants to various arts such as sculpture, modeling, and graphic arts, including the study and practice of ancient dry and wet drawing and printmaking techniques (woodcut, engraving, etching, drypoint, monotype).
In addition, there are other programs such as the “Summer Course,” a dedicated exploration of the world of antique drawing and printing with visits to the city’s collections, “The Art Workshop” which focuses on the recovery of traditional painting techniques and the secrets of ancient crafts, and “Paper Crafts” which consists of a calendar of demonstrations and workshops of various durations aimed at promoting artisanal and artistic techniques related to the world of paper, ranging from calligraphy to letterpress printing, from non-digital photography to bookbinding, from portraiture to papier-mâché craftsmanship.
