Methodology and structure - During the course, students examine and analyse Italian interior and commercial spaces. “Interior” refers to key spaces for improving everyday living: places to eat, shop, and read and other public spaces.
A 360° vision of Italian – in particular, Milanese - reality and design methodology, is made possible by the synergy between lectures and practical training, both of which are supported by workshops and visits to relevant showrooms, shops, and exhibitions. During the course, students will acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of Italian interiors and commercial spaces, and they will take knowledge of the latest trends in Italian design. Students will also increase coherence and fluency in expressing ideas, pursuing a narrative yet analytical approach to their work and will get a better understanding on how to structure and develop a project following the Italian methodology - brief, concept, design, communication - being able to select the right tools and apply them.
