Also this year the Opera della Metropolitana will be recalling the educational activities that it conducted in what were known as the Opera's Schools at the turn of the 19th century, in a course combining theory with practice entitled:
“Acanthus Leaves and Gold Buttons” – techniques and styles in medieval illumination.
The course, which will be held in the Piccolomini Library starting at 10.00 am on 9, 10 and 11 February, will be run by art historian and painter Francesco Mori.
The events are promoted by the Opera della Metropolitana di Siena.
Organisation by Opera – Civita Group.
Only a limited number of places is available on the course, so reservations are essential.
