- Studying Papermaking, including line and chiaroscuro watermarks, with master papermaker Luigi Mecella in the Museum of Paper and Watermark papermill;
- Learning traditional Italian Bookbinding in the museum’s bindery with master bookbinder Giuseppe Baldinelli;
- Mastering printmaking techniques offered by Roberto Stelluti, celebrated local etcher represented in the collection of the Uffizi in Florence, in his own exceptional studio.
