“From the Idea to the Product”
Are you born to be an artist…or an entrepreneur?
It is a common preconception that Art and Science belong to parallel universes, despite of the fact that when it comes to decision making and problem solving, the human brain does not process information by algorythms ...
The contamination of Art and Science has proved to be successful in many domains over the centuries and it has reached its peak in the Renaissance, that infact has always been a model for innovation, “even better than Silicon Valley today”, in the opinion of researchers such as Eric Weiner.
As the debate about how to classify Management and Entrepreneurship, whether in the field of Sciences or in the field of Arts, has been endless and still left unsolved, and in the meantime generations and generations of people get stuck in this dilemma and sometimes, even lost, when they have to make a decision about their career…this year we will give our contribution to the research on this topic with a Certificate Program created in collaboration with Campus Citta’ del Sapere and Centro Sperimentale di Arte Contemporanea IS.Ca.PI, which aims at providing a full immersion experience in the daily life of the Renaissance Artist....

achieve high-Level performance as proficiency for advanced level student
The course is suitable for students at Master’s and Doctoral levels as well as language professionals who have an interest in English studies or applied linguistics.
English has become a global language of intercultural communication and is used worldwide as a contact language between people who do not share a common native language. Non-native speakers of English are increasingly using the language with each other in areas such as academia, business, diplomacy, sport and personal relationships. How does this new sociolinguistic situation develop and how does it affect language practices? Following Mauranen (2012), this course examines the phenomenon of English as a lingua franca (ELF) from three different but interrelated perspectives: cognitive, microsocial and macrosocial. We will start by looking at the linguistic features of ELF and thinking how cognitive properties of multilingual processing can explain them. Moving on to the microsocial perspective, the students will get a chance to observe ELF interaction in the private sphere, paying special attention to misunderstandings and pre-empting them as well as multilingual practices. At the macrosocial level, we will deal with such issues as language ideologies, linguistic imperialism and language ownership. Exploring a very recent concept of ‘translanguaging’, we will discuss the complex and fluid...
