We are pleased to inform you of the start of interesting COURSES at the Vantini School in Rezzato Brescia, here follows the press release of the school director Dr. Lara Vianelli:
“Thanks to the partnership agreement that has been renewed between the Rodolfo Vantini School of Arts and Professional Training, the Giuseppe Zanardelli Professional Training Centre, the Consortium of Brescian Marble Workers, the Consortium of Botticino Classical Marble Producers and the Consortium of Marble Quarrymen Valle di Nuvolera on 11 November evening courses in ART AND SCULPTURE will resume with the aim of promoting the culture of stone working and at the same time retraining workers in the stone sector.

The synergy once again put in place by the partners has outlined a catalogue comprising four training courses;

  1. FROM GROUND TO STONE: SCULPTURE TECHNIQUES starting on 11 November 2021
  2. CREATING A WORK OF ART IN MARBLE starting on 17 November 2021
  3. TECHNOLOGY FOR MARBLE PROCESSING beginning on 21 March 2022
  4. MAKING A MURAL, with two weekends scheduled for March and April 2022

This training course is part of the long tradition of the Vantini School, which was established in 1839 at the behest of the great Brescian neoclassical architect Rodolfo Vantini and today represents the only point of reference directly connected to the memory of the marble working places and its millenary working history, still capable of training new generations of professionals.

Making itself a protagonist and point of reference for the training offer in this sector is a particularly important objective in order to give value and meaning to a history and tradition that not only strongly links the school to the reasons of its founder, but also places it in close correlation with the peculiarity and specificity of a territory and a productive dimension that has in this school the only training reference point.

The institute can count on strong know-how in this field, on important collaborations that have been consolidated over the years with artists and craftsmen in the area, on a ramified system of companies that gravitate around the school, on a very strong link with associations and the institutional world, and above all on a technological endowment that is unique in Lombardy.

Referring to the local economy, the Scuola appears to have an easier time than other realities in integrating itself into the territorial system and incorporating its instances thanks to the dialogue it has been conducting for years with the sector’s major stakeholders. All the Consortia operating in the stone sector and many important companies in the sector have in fact been members of the Members’ Assembly of Scuola Vantini for years: an aspect that certainly favours dialogue.”
