Scuola Normale Superiore – Palazzone di Cortona, Arezzo (Italy)



The workshop will be held in the Palazzone, a monumental villa located near Cortona, town of medieval art and architecture set in the hills of the Val di Chiana.
The Palazzone was built from 1521 to 1527 on a plan drawn up by the Perugian painter, architect and poet Giovan Battista Caporali (1476–1560), pupil of Perugino and friend of Pinturicchio, Bramante and Signorelli.
In 1968 the villa was donated by Count Lorenzo Passerini to the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa for its academic activities and conferences.
