In 1989 he starts his graduation course at La Sapienza University in Rome. In this period his interest for fine arts intensifies, particularly the fresco paintings and tempera on the wall.

The study in loco, characteristic which will follow all the artist evolution, allowed a better comprehension of the arts putting it into the context of historical, philosophical and aesthetic relations.

In 1990 a study trip to France (Paris, Reims, Chartres, Amiens, Versalhes) he deepened his knowledge about gothic art, besides studying the masterpieces of the great masters in the museums. In The Netherlands, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Belgium, Anversa, Bruxelas. In England he found out the treasures of London, Oxford, Edinburgh, Durham and Newcastle.

In 1991, Marco Ulgheri moved to Florence where he stayed for one year. He did many studies in the countryside of Toscan and knew a lot of important places when doing the Grand-Tour- Medici Village (Pratolino, Poggio e Caiano, Artimino, Careggi,..), parks, churches and chapels which were present everywhere. He studied the great collections in the museums of Florence, Lucca, Siena, Fiesole, Pisa, Pistoia and San Gimignano. And then he could understand the expressive power of Fatori and macchiaioli that really influenced his future career.

Back to Rome, in 1992, he continued his field studies doing researches about the history of decoration, visiting Orsini-Bomarzo and Bracciano, Farnese-Caprarola, D’Este-Tivoli, Borghese and Giulia-Roma villages, and the abadias de Farfa-Rieti, Sta.
