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:

Creative Summer Camp

It’s a full immersion program to introduce high school students to all the creative fields we explore at RUFA: drawing, painting, design, photography, film, and Italian culture. This program will help you discover what you really love.

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. Each workshop will last one week and there will be the chance to combine more workshops in a row.
