During the academic year PIAMS promotes a series of Study weeks in order to advance the liturgical-musical culture and the thinking on Ambrosian rite and chant. Each Study week is thought for a limited number of students, with an amount reserved for foreigners. Sessions take place from Monday afternoon to Friday morning (10.00am - 1.00pm and 2.30pm - 5.30pm) and lessons are provided in Italian with the possibility of a linguistic support for foreign hosts in the previous week. Further information on the programme will be available on the website.
» Liturgical bibliology

» Organ engineering
The initiative is specifically thought for the professional retraining of specialists working in organ design, building and restoration sectors, as well as of professionals responsible for conserving and enhancing this important element of the musical heritage and of people interested in the creation of its architectural places.
» Medicine for musicians
The musicianís perfection is obtained through great efforts and a long learning period. The initiative develops a procedure providing participants with some instruments for promoting psychological well-being and a greater self-awareness, both in the particular area of the selected artistic-musical profession and in other areas of life.
» Rossini 150
Accanto alle due pietre miliari della produzione sacra rossiniana - lo Stabat mater e la Petite Messe solennelle - si collocano numerose altre composizioni, che vanno dalle Messe giovanili ai Trois chieurs religieux della maturità artistica, sino ai mottetti e agli inni eucaristici più tardivi o alla pastorale Nuit de Noel inclusa nei Peches de vieillesse: di tutto questo eterogeneo corpus l'iniziativa di studio si propone di offrire piste di analisi, sia mediante Master classes, sia mediante Workshops gastronomico-musicali, sia ancora mediante eventi musicali organistici, pianistici e vocali.
