The One Year course aims at consolidating the basics of visual design thereby allowing a critical approach to the design stage. The study plan includes lessons on Basic Design alongside general training. The first of these provide an historical, cultural and scientific background to visual design focusing in particular on visual processes, also studied from a theoretical and physiological point of view. The coherence between the subjects covered helps in constructing a design methodology, a designer’s most vital possession. The general training, on the other hand, provides the necessary creative, technical and methodological skills for the further study of visual communication and design during the Master’s year. There is in fact a continuous learning process that starts from the OneYear Course and leads to the specialist Master’s course.


The One Year Course lasts for one academic year from October to July. Attendance is compulsory and full-time commitment is required including the participation to lessons, class exercises, visits and the individual study.
