Course info
The Degree Course in Arts, Music and Performing Arts aims at providing basic and interdisciplinary cultural education where the theory, history, analysis of visual art, music and entertainment forms in the classical and contemporary world, integrate with computer skills and with the knowledge of the principles, methods and techniques of design and representation. The aim of the Course is to provide undergraduates with disciplinary knowledge of arts and of the specific characteristics of media for the production of artistic language and for changing the way of thinking and making art, integrated with interdisciplinary knowledge making them professional and practical. Theories and history of the arts are centered on the mechanisms of generation of narratives, images and sounds in the classical world as well as in contemporary times. The computer science, design and architecture teachings are designed to provide skills and tools to understand and apply the basic technological resources to represent, manage and develop knowledge (digitization, visualization and data base, networks and communication devices), to select and optimize the use of applications depending on the features, the meaning and cultural value of works of art, musical compositions, and drawing practice. The IT lessons will provide the principles and operational skills for the software for the design, music production, as well as for the tools for musical and theatrical performances, to facilitate the mediation between technological knowledge and the world of arts, adapting or conceiving the possible development in function of specific expressive requirements. In this sense, the teachings related to architectural design will provide an important opportunity to mediate scientific knowledge and skills, and knowledge and skills related to the art world. The educational objective of the course is to equip graduates with a theoretical and historical culture and soft skills for the analysis and solution of problems related to the application and development of core technologies for every artistic address. The Degree Course is divided into three curricula, dedicated to the arts, music and performing arts.
