Drawing in the Museums

A novel collaboration between the Vatican Museums and the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome has resulted in the offer of new didactic possibilities for students and teachers. For example, Students following the course in Artistic Anatomy are granted permission for still-life drawing of the masterpieces selected for their study work.

For 2009-2010 Academic Year - Course: "The heroic body, the human body as the mirror of the high moral stature". Selected works of art: Belvedere Apollo, Christ the Judge by Michelangelo Buonarroti, Creugas and Damosseno by Antonio Canova.
For 2010-2011 Academic Year - Course: "Animal Farm by Orwell, reflections on the physiognomy of Giovan Battista della Porta". Selected works of art: sculptures of farm animals in the Hall of Animals of the Pio Clementino Museum.



Training Seminars for Teachers

The fruitful synergy between the Didactic Activities Office and the A.N.I.S.A (Italian Association of Art History Teachers) led to the creation of Training Seminars for Teachers, organised over several days and held in the Vatican Museums. This partnership has enhanced the course content already available in the Museums, deepening the relationship with the teaching body, which is considered essential and thus mutually beneficial. This partnership enables a complete School-Museum planning coherent with the scholastic programs.
