The course program leading to the first-level academic diploma in the School of Decoration is intended to provide adequate mastery of artistic methods and techniques, as well as acquisition of specific disciplinary and professional skills, with emphasis on both traditional instruments and new technologies. The courses in the School are aimed at developing general knowledge and skills for project realisation, territorial interventions, and environmental works, as well as exploration of and research into codes of expression in the visual arts.
Students in the School’s diploma course must:
- possess an adequate technical-operative formation in methods and contents related to the sectors of research in the fields of the arts, techniques and technologies of visual and plastic arts as applied to decoration;
- possess methodological and critical tools for acquisition of skills in codes of expression, techniques and advanced technologies;
- be competent in at least one foreign language of the European Community, besides the mother tongue, in the main area of competence and for general information exchange;
- possess adequate skills for digital communication and management of information.
Graduates will undertake professional activities in various fields, as free-lance artists in the visual arts and other creative activities, and as collaborators in the planning, design and execution of specific decoration projects, using both traditional techniques and new technologies and forms of expression employed in national and international contexts.
The Academies will organise, in collaboration with public and private institutions, internships and apprenticeships that will provide the specific skills needed, and will further define specific training models for each course of study.
In order to complete the curriculum and gain admittance to discussion of the written and practical thesis, candidates must pass all exams and obtain the following academic credits:
- 108 credits in foundation and specific educational activities (foundation 36-48 credits, specific 60-72 credits)
- 4 compulsory credits for a foreign European language
- 12 credits for the thesis and three practical examinations
TOTAL CREDITS: 180
The diploma will be awarded when the candidate has obtained the required academic credits, has passed all exams and successfully discussed his or her thesis, also presenting three artistic projects agreed with the Head of Department.
