In general, we think of the costume department as a technical one, linked more to the sartorial than to the authorial aspect. Instead, it is one of the most important artistic departments, because a good costume is often what gives shape to the character. Good costume designers must know how to read and analyze a script and use their art to dress the protagonists of the story of a personality, thus helping the actor to better embody the character. And we are not just speaking of historical costumes, those that most affect the attention of the general audience, but also the modern and urban ones, which are often not noticed but that give the characters their own identity.

THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH

The Lighting for Retail and Commercial Spaces study program teaches how to use light as a powerful tool for design and expression in commercial spaces, an increasingly competitive and changing sector. Artificial lighting technology is nowadays in constant evolution, requiring specific knowledge and expertise in order to fully master its potential.

Whether natural or artificial, light has a strong connection with people and the way they experience the space around them: acting on perception and sensations and influencing people’s comfort, activity and the choices they make.

Lighting design is, therefore, a crucial part of the design of any space and experience. In Commercial Spaces, it is especially essential, as it determines the overall look and feel of the environment and the well-being and behavior of the actual users of that space. In hospitality, retail and offices, lighting are closely linked to the brand image, making it a key element to design a complete and consistent user experience, meeting all the commercial requirements....

The One Year course in Product Design is taught following a single theme approach with cycles of lessons on theory integrated with workshop exercises and subjects. In this way students can acquire the solid cultural, methodological and operative foundations and can opt to pursue their education further by applying for following a Master’s course in Industrial Design or Interior Design.

CHARACTERISTICS AND AIMS

The One Year Course is aimed at providing basic training for product and interior designers. This aim is achieved through a well balanced teaching programme that solidifies the necessary methodological tools for approaching a project. Topics covered in the course are included in the study plan so as to consolidate historical and cultural backgrounds and provide a conceptual framework to refer to. This includes portrayal techniques, theory and the physiology of perceived phenomena. General training, on the other hand, aims to provide the mastery of technical and technological instruments, the understanding of operative supports, and the vocabulary of product design and product systems design. Lessons are directly relevant to the requirements and skills needed for the Master’s year, which is the ideal continuation of this course.... [-]

Cultural sensitivity and understanding can stimulate the potential for innovation in new product and service design. This course will show you how!

Could a valuable (and healthy) innovative idea, such as the use of hot air technology to fry food be adopted worldwide? Can indigenous patterns and other forms of native art be used to decorate products regardless of their context and meaning? Can the way we look at and compare cultural differences and practices be a source of inspiration in product and service design?

This course will take participants beyond the obvious into the unexplored. It will expand their view and move their research from the realm of the traditional user-product environment into the cultural context. Cultural sensitivity will help, not only to avoid mismatches between designs and intended users, but it will also prove a great source of inspiration and opportunities for new product design.... [-]
