In all the three phases, lessons include workshops aimed at building and sharing experiences and projects with students. The methodology phase is aimed at preparing students to moments of research and concepts in order to define the objectives and the real value of the project. A fundamental aspect of the course is the study of composition’s principles. The design phase of the Workshops allows students to get to the heart of the topics and catch the specificities of each subject (product design, interior design, landscape design) by providing the tools to become more familiar with the project. This is the point at which the methodological phase finds application in the practical sphere. The last phase is based on the development of the final project, a moment of synthesis of all the lessons where students develop the insights experienced during the course, always led by supervisors who guide them on this journey. At the end of the course, practitioners will be able to manage the complexity and coordinate the design project through an integrated approach including creative, cultural, productive, marketing and communication aspects.
