Opificio della Rosa, Summer 2020

At the Opificio della Rosa the summer is the time to do printmaking, workshops, artistic confrontation but, because of the emergency COVID-19, we have to suspend the courses and artistic residences for this summer, because of the social distancing that we could not respect at the castle. 

We are very sorry because after 11 years of activity we miss that beautiful summer moment of artistic and work sharing that we are looking forward all year long.

We very much hope that the COVID-19 emergency will soon finish and we can return to normality.

However, the Opificio della Rosa does not stop this summer, we take the opportunity to continue our work of font restoration, technical experiments and a series of tutorials on printmaking.
