Throughout recent decades, interior spaces have played an increasingly important role in our individual and collective environments. The “interior” space is substance, living matter. Entering into it does not mean entering an empty space but becoming part of a large body. Interior design activates and enlivens the complex public buildings within our contemporary cities and gives meaning to public spaces, which represent the interior of the city itself.
The program is characterized by its extensive workshops, in which students face challenging design tasks that are developed from an interdisciplinary perspective under the supervision of a small team of professors, each responsible for a distinct aspect of the project.
The program develops specific technical and methodological approaches to domestic spaces. The theoretical courses examine the historical and the present scenarios of Italian design and include research in the field of cultural innovation. Finally, the creative workshops, in which students engage in practical design projects, are led by outstanding personalities in the fields of interaction design, communication design, and exhibition design.
