10 Best Painting and Drawing schools in Italy

Below is the list of best universities in Italy ranked based on their research performance in Painting and Drawing. A graph of 7.92K citations received by 939 academic papers made by 10 universities in Italy was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.

Please note that our approach to topical rankings is based on scientific outputs and therefore prefers institutions researching arts through computer science.
