experience art & music in italy

Over the past ten years, Art and Music Italia has become a world-renowned institution in one of Italy's most historic and dynamic towns—San Marco di Castellabate, (Salerno) Italy.  Far from being your typical summer camp, it not only offers a vast array of art and musical enrichment activities for teens of all levels, but also provides a hands on, personalized, immersive experience of the rich culture, history, and natural charm of this southern Italian town.  

Perhaps the essence of Art and Music Italia is its three-pronged approach of learning, socialization, and cultural immersion. With low student-teacher ratios, the program caters to each student’s unique needs. Year after year, students attest to the warm, nurturing family atmosphere, as well as the friendships and camaraderie that inevitably form by the end of the two-week period. Mr. D’Agostino and his colleagues have developed a magic formula that provides students with a genuinely welcoming environment that is both challenging and supportive as well as relaxing and fun. 

Exhibits and Concerts

The intimate size of San Marco di Castellabate offers many opportunities for showcasing our talented campers. From pop-up art shows in San Marco Square, art exhibits at Toretta (a local café), concerts at a local villa, or jam sessions on the Fondazione's terrace, there is no shortage performance venues for our young musicians and artists.

Our two-week session will culminate with a final performance and exhibition at Fondazione Passarelli.
