Summer Academy

Coming together as a community has been completely challenged during the past two years and we are happy now to embrace new kinds of collectivity and celebrate each other’s presence, enjoying the wonderful summer of Rome at RUFA.



RUFA Summer Academy 2022 aims to offer a wide range of opportunities to learn and practice arts, design, and communication and will take place on-site in Room in July and September 2022. Our Summer Academy 2022 comprises a number of different programs:

We have two distinctive preparatory courses to help you familiarize yourself with a specific creative field and build a portfolio to discuss during your admission exam. One course will be focused on Design, Graphic Design, the other one on Photography and Cinema. Both courses will be held in Italian from 1st to 9th September.

Creative Laboratory

RUFA will host various advanced workshops for college students and adults to deep dive into specific theories, techniques, and practices through ad-hoc programs with top-notch artists and professionals.
