Press release from: Cultural Italy

Fresco is an early form of painting on plaster that dates back to ancient Crete. Fresco painting flourished during the Renaissance, and is still a popular art form today. You can learn the skills of this art form and create your own piece at the fresco workshops being offered at the Palazzo Vecchio. The workshop includes a tour of the artwork in the museum of the Palazzo Vecchio.
