About

You will further refine your training to a high degree of technical and design specialization. Throughout your entire course of study, you will be supported by a well-structured, constantly updated cycle of joint efforts, internships and work placements with leading proponents in the world of Italian set design.

A course to manage space, depth, and movement.

The MA Degree Program in Set Design is an opportunity for students with an artistic and creative personality, in search of a professional environment, to express their vision and design talent, and to receive highly specialized training.

Being able to imagine the space used to narrate as a three-dimensional space means having a mind that is flexible and practical, able to compose and recreate depth and beauty.

Designed to train specialized professional profiles, the two-year Scenography Course at RUFA is the result of a solid academic tradition in teaching art, design, scenery, and theatre.

Scenography, the show is the space around the action.

Scenography is the noble art of creating the scenery, the technique of designing the space and the lighting around the action, the narration, and the magic of a live space.

A fundamental profession essential to the successful outcome of any performance, including theatre, opera, film, television, concerts, set up preparation and exhibits.

The Scenographer designs and creates using lights, materials, textiles, architecture, woodwork, 3D modeling, furnishings, finishes, decorations, and costumes.

Becoming a stage or set designer opens the doors to a large selection of professional opportunities from working in the world of show business to art and creative direction as applied to any artistic performance, and the activities of interior designer and decorator.
