After Michelangelo and Raphael, the Art of Renaissance Rome was perhaps best defined by the work of two brothers Taddeo and Federico Zuccaro. Not only were they among the most highly sought after artists of their generation, they were also a major influence behind the creation of the first art academies in Europe.

Through early struggles of their own, the Zuccaro brothers developed a particular interest in the training and wellbeing of other young artists who had come to Rome to learn the art of "disegno" and even made plans to found a special refuge in the Eternal City for deserving students who arrived there with no place to live.

It is in this spirit that the Zuccaro Scholarship has been established to assist with the education of aspiring artists who are in need of financial assistance and intent on learning the art of "disegno" at Mims Studios.
