More information


Accademia Riaci is an Academy of Art and Design in the heart of Florence, Italy - Europe's eternal capital of the Renaissance - founded in 1983 by our Honorary President and Italy's leading jewelry artisan & sculptor, Maestro Raymond Riachi.Upon founding Maestro Raymond Riachi had a strong vision to create a school that not only taught his techniques, but enlightened young artists with the lively spirit and atmosphere of the Renaissance, in order to fulfill his life long mission as a Maestro. This was how Accademia Riaci was founded: a treasure box of traditional art and its irreplaceable techniques.Starting as a small art studio, today the same passionate mission has lit up a spectacular team of teachers representing the best Italian artists in Florence, retaining the founder and Honorary President's vision of tradition and spirit, expressed in the quote.

The academy's faculty are top runner artists of each field, committed to inspiring next generation artists with unique tradition and artistic knowledge.
