Learning and leisure.

RUFA summer Academy is managed by the Academy. The goal is to allow foreign students to learn about photographic composition, art history and culture, ever present in the city of Rome. The curriculum is combined with tourism activities, guided excursions and popular music events.

The language component involves a very flexible Italian language course, which does not require prior knowledge of the language, divided into 4 daily lessons to be attended in classes of maximum 12 participants, all strictly foreigners. The course is based on a strong and continuous work on conversation skills, so that from the beginning all students are able to understand, express themselves and actively participate in the lessons. Through art and photography workshops, students will deepen their knowledge of the Italian language by applying it to the study of ancient and contemporary Italian culture and art. They will carry out painting, drawing, nude figure drawing (Art course), photographic composition and shooting techniques (Photography course) projects.


RUFA Summer Academy is open to everyone. It is taught in English and Italian and at the end of it a certificate of attendance is issued.
