On 26th of April we came back from the study visit in Florence.
During one week our group of 8 participants took part in workshops run by artisan masters from European Centre for Restoration and ORO e COLORE school and laboratory. Workshops were very intensive, however we found also opportunities for exploring Florence, individually and alltogether. We used this time in 100%.
Warm welcome prepared by Centro Machiavelli (thank you!):
