The Albertina Accademy

The Albertina Academy is a university institution for the study of Fine Arts, based in Turin. Although the name “Albertina” refers to Charles Albert of Savoy, to whom the decisive “refoundation” of the Academy in 1833 is due, its origins are much more remote, so much so that the Turin Academy can be considered one of the oldest in Italy.

In recent years, the Albertina Academy has continued to transform and renew itself, promoting numerous educational and cultural initiatives. It is worth mentioning, in this case, the reorganization and the reopening to the public of the Pinacoteca, the restoration of the building and the rationalization of the interior spaces (still in progress), the intense activity of exhibitions, conferences, seminars and demonstrations, the massive introduction of informatics in the Academy and the creation of the new experimental course of Conservation and Restoration from the school year 1997-98.
