About

You will learn to master matter and movement, building your own path towards artistic expression, creating a unique language of communication which will grant you full access to the contemporary art scene.

The sculpture: material, movement, and space to express art.

RUFA is well-established in the international arena as experts in teaching sculpture thanks to its President, Alfio Mongelli, a world-renowned sculptor, celebrated for his linear aesthetic, which is both elegant and powerful.

Through sculpture taught in the MA Degree Program at RUFA, students learn to dominate matter and motion and find their ability in expressing themselves artistically, creating a personal language, and making their mark in the contemporary art scene.

At RUFA we study all the languages of the Fine Arts.

Within the RUFA academic structure, the two-year MA Degree Program in Sculpture is part of the Visual Arts Department, the branch of academic studies in RUFA that houses the interaction between the Fine Arts disciplines, creating new synergies between them.

At RUFA the new contemporary artist is born, able to express oneself through multiple Fine Art expressions whether they are graphic, painterly, transformational or technological.

Talent and preparation to become artists and sculptors.

To learn how to express one's own art, one must have practical training and solid cultural knowledge. With these elements, the artist can come to life with authority and conviction, and with the sensitivity and personality of the sculptor, which is essential when expressing one's own creative language and finding a place in the art world.

Within the Second Level Diploma Course in Sculpture at RUFA, students receive extensive training in studying specific subjects such as contemporary transformational techniques, photography, iconography, life drawing, visual arts, and graphic art.

The strength of interdisciplinary influence.

The Department of Visual Arts RUFA aims to pursue the goal of interdisciplinary studies, which includes finding the training and operational synergies among the various art courses offered by the Academy.

Due to the high level of preparation of their teachers, artists, and activists, the Sculpture Degree at RUFA represents the level of training essential to access the world of artistic expression, a world that is fluid and changing in which influences and stimuli are interchanged between the artistic disciplines.

The RUFA artist has a transversal personality, able to express him/herself with strength and recognition in any discipline of contemporary Fine Arts.

Academy Degrees are equivalent to Master’s university degrees.

Professors: Simone Cametti, Emiliano Coletta, Antonella Conte, Genny Di Bert, Davide Dormino, Giuseppe Gallo, Bentivenga Gianna, Nicolas Martino, Bentivenga Maria Pina, Christian Rizzo.
