Dear Patrons and Friends,

The deadline to register for the first semester of the PAVM Insiders Course is less than a week away: Wednesday, October 14th, is the deadline.
We encourage our most dedicated Patrons to take part in this special program that brings the Vatican Museums to your homes. With 85 Patrons now registered, it is our hope that you will help us make one last push to promote the Insiders Course this weekend. This is a rare opportunity to have this direct contact with our Curators and Restorers. Even Dr. Barbara Jatta, the Vatican Museums Director, will be on the first live Zoom Q + A call. She is looking forward to seeing you and spending time with you her fellow Patrons!


Please enjoy some photos of our staff in action and on set of the PAVM Insiders Course. We are thankful for all their hard work and dedication to this project.

After October 14th, late adherents can continue to register for the course. However, due to processing time requirements, we cannot guarantee those who sign up after October 14th live participation in Liz Lev’s lecture October 17th .

It will be recorded for participants to watch later.
If you any additional questions about the Insiders Course, please contact Denise Molitsky
