Greetings from the Director

RUFA. A multidisciplinary, international educational centre.

I would like to welcome you most warmly to RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts, a place where you might devise your own course of artistic studies in the field of Fine Art, Communication and Design before embarking on careers which, albeit challenging, are undoubtedly brimming with personal and professional fulfilment. Students enrolled on our Academic Courses study under teachers and professionals working in the relevant fields, enabling them to gain essential and meaningful experiences. Studying at RUFA is a fundamental, transverse experience: alongside theoretical studies, we provide interdisciplinary, methodological-operative guidance with distinctly international overtones.

RUFA is a Fine Arts Academy legally recognized by the Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), awarding Academic Diplomas equivalent to university degrees. RUFA – a centre of learning where the talents and personalities of our students are deemed as fundamental, essential elements – aims to furnish its alumni with a competitive edge right from the start, providing them with the tools necessary to ease their entry into the professional workplace.

Our principle objective is not merely to offer sound academic courses but also, more importantly, provide our students with the chance to gain fruitful experience through internships and training programmes. Furthermore, to guarantee the attainment of excellent learning outcomes, our students are guided every step of the way by staff and teachers who are constantly available to deal with any issues arising along the educational pathway and to offer ongoing assistance in the various areas of specialist expertise and disciplines.

With a sense of commitment, effort and dedication, we have been accompanying young artists for more than fifteen years in their quest to realise their dreams and live their passions to the full, preparing them to become the artists of the future.

I wish you all the best in your work!
Arch. Fabio Mongelli
Director RUFA, Rome University of Fine Arts.
