The one-year Master’s Program in Photography and Visual Design, developed in collaboration with Fondazione FORMA per la Fotografia, integrates theoretical study with laboratories and project workshops. Coursework is enriched by guided visits to research centers and performance spaces, audiovisual production facilities, publishing houses, theatres, artists’ studios, museums, and contemporary art galleries. Workshops simulating real assignments in real technologically-equipped studios are conducted in collaboration with a network of partner companies and institutions and focus on various project areas from photography exhibitions to magazines, photo/ video interactions, and corporate projects. The second part of the program is dedicated to a period of internship at selected companies or institutions such as publishing companies, editorial offices, photo agencies, photo archives, museums, galleries, or photo studios that facilitate their entry into the job market. The combination of all these different aspects and approaches represents the tools through which this program prepares groundbreaking professionals to enter the world of photography, arts and national and International communication.
