Lectures on Medieval art, history and architecture

Medieval Umbria is a land of saints and warriors. This period played witness to the births of St. Francis, St. Clare and Erasmus of Narni, the adventurous mercenary leader; all great characters that would go on to influence the art, religion and politics of the centuries to come. It was in this period too that the great basilicas, castles and monasteries were built, typically found throughout the Umbrian landscape. The presentations will illustrate the history and the most important events of the Middle Ages, as well as the architectural and artistic evolution of the cities and the territory. The meetings will also be enriched by guided excursions of the most intriguing places of Narni and Umbria.

Workshop on Fresco Painting
Historical and hands-on instructions in the art of fresco painting.

Fresco is one of the oldest painting techniques. It was invented by the Egyptians who later taught it to the Greeks. But it was only in the 14th century, thanks to the Italian painter Giotto, that the fresco technique gained more and more importance among the Fine Arts.

The most peculiar quality of fresco painting lies undoubtedly in its making: the pigment – a natural material – is laid on a fresh plaster several times in a short lapse of time, and through a cohesion process it fixes itself in the plaster, creating warm and subtle tones.

The first step of the course is the construction of a lathwork using a 14th century technique. The second step is the “arriccio”, i.e. the laying of mortar (a mixture of lime and sharp sand) on the lathwork. This operation is followed by the laying of plaster (a mixture of lime and fine sand). A drawing is sketched on cardboard. The drawing is then perforated along its outlined and pounced over the plaster. As a result, a “sinopia” will appear on the plaster. The sinopia has to be divided into two or more parts according to its size; every part will be later painted in individual sessions. The last step is the “plaster finish”, i.e. the laying of a mixture made up of sieved sand and slaked lime, which has to be smoothed accurately with a trowel before finally starting to paint.
Students will be able to create at least two frescoes on a brick or a stone plate, with measures around 20cm x 30cm. These works will remain with the students.
Included in the course are guided tours to see the main frescoes of the Umbrian school (Giotto, Gozzoli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio).

• Classes will be held at Scuola delle Arti della Città di Narni on
Tuesday, July 18 – Thursday, July 20 – Tuesday, July 25 – Thursday, July 27
from 10.00am to 12.30pm.

• One-week course (July 17 – 23 or July 24 – 30, two lessons): €80 per person.
• Two-week course (July 17 – 30, four lessons): €100 per person.

The tuition fee includes all materials and tools.

The course is aimed at anyone. There are no required special skills or knowledge of painting technique.

At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Meet your teacher:
Sergio Di Loreto holds a degree from Accademia di Belle Arti P. Vannucci in Perugia. In 1995, he funded the “Scuola delle Arti della Città di Narni”, where he is coordinator and teacher.

 

Workshop on Umbrian Ceramics
Historical and hands-on instructions in the creation and painting of Umbrian pottery.

Umbria has long been famous for its ceramics right back to Etruscan and Roman times. There are few better suited settings to experience a pottery course. The course will offer a chance to learn several techniques in clay. The clay is shaped by hand using molds for production of items such as plates, bowls or sculptures. Once the desired shape has been created the clay objects are fired in kilns at 1020° C (1868° F). This first firing results in a product called “bisque”.

During the course you will also decorate with enamels your choice of pre bisqueted ceramics fired during the week. You can take your creations home with you. Included in the workshop are guided tours to laboratories and the regional museum of pottery in Deruta. Established in 1898, it is the most ancient ceramics museum in Italy.

• Classes will be held at Scuola delle Arti della Città di Narni on
Tuesday, July 18 – Thursday, July 20 – Tuesday, July 25
from 4.00pm to 7.00pm.
Saturday, July 29: exhibition of works and “concerto aperitivo” from 12noon to 1.00pm.

• Three-class course: €100 per person.

The tuition fee includes all materials and tools.

At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.

Meet your teachers:

Historical information:

Although Neolithic people lived in this region, the first historical document mentioning the town is dated 600 B.C.
Narni was a Roman colony under the name of Narnia, a name that comes from the Nar River, which today is called the Nera.
In 233 B.C., with the construction of the via Flaminia from Rome to Rimini on the Adriatic coast, Narni became of major importance and it was heavily fortified because the road passed through the town.

In 90 B.C., Narnia became a municipally (semi independent) town within the Roman Empire.
The first Christian Bishop of Narni, Giovenale from Cartage, was chosen in 368 A.D. and later was consecrated as Patron Saint of the town.
Narni’s strategic position, standing as it does above the deep gorge of the river Nera, has made it a target of many invading and barbarian forces.
In the 11th Century it established its power as a free “Comune” (autonomous town).
Between the 12th and the 14th century it reached its greatest splendor.
In 1371, the Pope Reformed the Statutes of the city and Narni became part of the Papal State.
Narni developed a school of painting and goldsmithing. Many artists of the renaissance period produced work for clients and patrons in Narni: Rosellino, Ghirlandaio, Gozzoli, Vecchietta, Antoniazzo, Romano and Spagna.
On the 17th of July 1527 the Lanzichenecchi (northern mercenaries) stopped on their way back from the sacking of Rome and destroyed Narni.
Slowly the walls, buildings and churches were rebuilt and by the end of the century, Narni had been re-established.
After the rebuilding, many important artists returned to Narni, including Vignola and Zuccari. Also Sangallo and Scalza, who took part in the reconstruction of the town.
In 1664 the town library was founded. Many famous people were born in Narni, including: the emperor M.C. Nerva, Gattamelata, the Beata Lucia, Bernardo, Eroli, Galeotto Marzio and S. Cassio.
