This was the first of many scholarships that took Liccione through his high school and collegiate years. His in-depth understanding of classic styles led to a full scholarship from the Italian government at the globally respected Accademia Di Belle Arti Di Brera in Milan, Italy.

Due to the quality and life that can be achieved with the Venetian Method, Liccione has been commissioned for set decorations and design for film, stage, and TV.
