Programs for every level and need

Il Bisonte successfully raises the bar on art education, with a commitment to excellence, and a mission to help students to reach their creative potential.

The school is the main concern of the Fondazione “Il Bisonte – per lo studio dell’arte grafica”. The foundation was established in order to foster and to teach printmaking techniques (traditional and contemporary), promoting the taste for printmaking and art prints and contributing to studies and researches in this field. The school has inherited the tradition and spirit of the printworkshop 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.
