Fresco painting classes at Palazzo Vecchio

Fresco painting between the 15th and 16th Centuries
Scheduled on Mondays and Fridays
at 11,30 a.m. - 3.00 p.m.
Of all the forms of painting carried out by the artists, wall painting is the most skilled and beautiful as it consists of accomplishing in one day only, that which can be touched up on many days in the other forms”.
This was how Giorgio Vasari explained the technique of fresco painting, known and carried out since ancient times. Palazzo Vecchio houses a great number of “in fresco” paintings carried out by Giorgio Vasari himself, and by other famous artists. Besides illustrating and explaining the techniques of fresco painting, the workshop also allows the participants to gain firsthand experience by painting a small fresco themselves, experimenting the various phases of the work on a natural terracotta base: from the spreading of the plaster to the creation of the cartoon, from the preparation of the colours to the actual painting. If they like, the participants can also take home their artwork at the end of the activity.
