Recent research carried out by Isat and linked to reports such as "Impresa Cultura" by Federculture and "Io sono Cultura" by Symbola on the state of creative industries in Italy highlighted exponential growth of awareness of our cultural heritage, the environment and our territory. At the same time, expenditure in culture and cultural activities is constantly increasing with higher numbers of people than ever visiting museums, monuments and archeological sites.
In connection with this phenomenon, new forms of funding and management structures are gradually being developed in order to offer the public more complex and varied services, for example through support systems such as museum fundraising and the Italian art bonus.
Focussing on smart management - to bridge the wide gap with other European countries - we teach graduating students and young professionals how they can contribute to the development and implementation of services for the sustainable enjoyment of our shared cultural and environmental heritage.
This course aims to provide you with in depth managerial and cultural skills and enable you to handle communication plans, fundraising and project management combined with detailed knowledge of our cultural heritage and territory. You will be able to understand and use the networks of institutions that work in the sector to maximum effect to create new partnerships and managerial and promotional structures for our heritage.
Graduates from this course possess managerial and organisational skills for the cultural sector. They can work in museums, galleries, cultural associations, foundations, auction houses, communcations and fundraising companies, design companies, cultural events groups and tourism and territorial organisations with the aim of creating new services for culture fit for today's society and facilitating our cultural growth in an international context.
