Texts and Materials


A list of texts and materials for each course is available in the syllabus located just after each course description. Make sure term and instructor name correspond to the course you are enrolled in.

Most texts can be found in the SACI Library or can be purchased easily in Italy (at Paperback Exchange bookstore, or online at Amazon-Italy, Internet Bookshop Italia or Amazon-UK to name a few). If you are enrolled in a studio course where materials need to be purchased, most instructors will accompany the class to the supply store on the first day.

If you already own materials for studio classes you like working with (such as paints or chisels), feel free to bring them with you. However, remember not to pack anything in your carry-on luggage that could be considered dangerous by airline security inspectors.

Some instructors expect you to have purchased certain texts or materials before arriving in Italy so you have them on the first day of the term. Please click on the course titles below for more information.
