“The aim of the school is to impart a command of art that combines the artistic expressiveness with the craftmanship.” Maria Luigia Guaita
The school is the main concern of the Fondazione “Il Bisonte – per lo studio dell’arte grafica”. The foundation was established in order to keep alive and to teach traditional printmaking techniques, promoting the taste for printmaking and art prints and contributing to study and research in this field. The school has inherited the tradition and spirit of the printworks of the same name, which was founded in 1959 by Maria Luigia Guaita and it is housed in the atmospheric and ancient former stables of Palazzo Serristori in San Niccolò, one of the Oltrarno’s most picturesque and lively neighbourhoods.
