In 2020 it is the tenth time that Accademia Amsterdam organises summer courses in Perugia for music and art lovers. We celebrate this anniversary with a semi-staged performance of high-lights from “King Arthur”. When enough participants apply, we organise an additional performance on Sunday 26 July in one of the most beautiful “borghi” of Italy: Deruta*.
1. Drawing & Painting
Course participants will get professional guidance from a qualified tutor. You are welcome to this course, whether you are experienced or you want to give it a try. The drawing and painting courses will take place in the open air or in the “Palazzo della Penna”. Inspired by the opera and saga of “King Arthur”, you are encouraged to make simple opera requisites or masks. But feel free to choose your own subject(s). Several drawing or painting techniques can be applied at wish: charcoal, ink, pencil, wax pastels or (oil/acrylic) paint.
Duration of the course: 1 to 5 days (as desired). This course can be very well combined with Choir-singing or Italian cooking.
2. Italian cooking
The cooking courses will be dedicated to the traditional Italian cuisine, from “fabulous” appetizers to desserts. It highlights the evolution from country cooking to the most technologically advanced kitchen. We will pay attention to the preparation of fresh pastas and homemade pastries.
After the first course day, we adapt the courses to the needs of the participants, asking them which recipes and techniques they would like to learn. At request, you can cook rural dishes of the Baroque era, following the original recipes. The courses are taking place in the well-equipped kitchen of professional cook and sommelier Cinzia Ubaldi, very close to the “Palazzo della Penna”.
During the course-week, participants can enjoy the results of the cooking course at lunch or at the common dinner.
Duration of the course: 1 to 5 days (as desired). This course can be very well combined with Choir-singing or Drawing & Painting.
