Accademia Carrara proposes its new appointment Vista da Vicino with a special initiative Close-Up, detailed analysis of some masterpieces of the Museum in English.


The young art historians who are currently doing their internship at the Museum will provide an in-depth description of museum’s collection. 


Close-Up / Vista da Vicino is dedicated to both foreign and Italian visitors who want to discover the Museum’s major works and at the same time deepen their knowledge of the English language.
