Training programmes offered by the Department of Architecture and Design of the Politecnico di Torino.
The Master’s Degree (II level) in Design for Arts is a training programme entirely in English offered by the Department of Architecture and Design of the Politecnico di Torino. The course is directed by Prof Pier Paolo Peruccio, with the collaboration of Dr Gail Cochrane, and is open to a maximum of 25 students with a Master’s degree from the faculties of Communication, Architecture, Design, Computer Engineering, Performing Arts and Media Production.
The course lasts one year and is the result of an in-depth analysis of the cultural and entrepreneurial characteristics of the Piedmont region, with the aim of training professionals with the multidisciplinary skills needed today in the sectors of institutional management linked to the world of art (galleries, museums, trade fairs, etc.), cultural innovation (archives and corporate museums) and non-profit organisations (private foundations and non-profit cultural institutions).
SYDERE_ARTS (Systemic Design Research Education Center) is an advanced research laboratory within the Architecture and Design Department of the Politecnico di Torino. For the academic year 2022-2023, the coordinators of the centre – Prof. Pierpaolo Peruccio and the curator Gail Cochrane – have proposed to the Foundation a project entitled “The Masters of Italian photography” relating to the enhancement of its photographic collection with the aim of a search for connoting themes and international comparisons with a curatorial approach to define identity, characteristics and strengths, systematizing and ordering the collection also with a view to its dissemination with innovative and virtual technologies.
