MADE Program at Rosario Gagliardi Academy of Fine Arts & Design

MADE Program is the new project of the Rosario Gagliardi Academy of Fine Arts, a legally accredited, degree-granting international-level academy. The first of its kind in Italy, Rosario Gagliardi Academy of Fine Arts aims to work at the crossroads of design, art, traditional crafts, and local culture, creating an operational platform based in the South of Italy, in Siracusa, Sicily.

Behind MADE, a newly formed group of "adventure-loving" people from all parts of the world with superior training and professional experience acquired in important Italian and foreign academies and universities, is the belief that education, in the highest sense of the term, is fundamental to any form of progress.

An entirely new academy, reborn from the sea and on the sea; a living organism nourished and inspired by the energy and spirit of its home environment: the Genius Loci of the Mediterranean Sea. A place capable of reflecting the cultural and artistic dynamism of the whole of Sicily, of absorbing international ferment and nurturing new talent. A modern, dynamic institution, able to offer young people new expressive opportunities, aligned with the trends of our time.
