A very special way to discover the secrets of Rome and to learn the ancient technique of engraving: we will discover, draw, engrave and finally print the myths and legends hidden in the city. A unique approach to teaching, because well’ll learn drawing outdoors and then working in workroom, under the guidance of experienced engravers. The result will be a series of hand-made prints.
