Umbria Experience, UniAbaPg: an artistic project for companies

In the framework of Open Borders, yesterday, 13th April, the Umbria Region that created the installation “Scorched or Blackened” for Interni’s exhibition-event, presented the new master’s course in Interior/Exhibit Design, that stems from the unprecedented synergy between the University of Perugia and the Academy of Fine Arts “Pietro Vannucci” in Perugia.

The presentation took place at the Università Statale, in the Aula del Senato Accademico: for the education sector, the following speakers took the floor: Fabrizio Figorilli, vice chancellor of the University of Perugia, and Paolo Belardi, chairman of the Academy of Fine Arts, while companies were represented by Andrea Margaritelli from Listone Giordano and Massimiliano Catanese from Almax.

The master’s course, that will start in the 2016/2017 academic year, aims at training professionals able to work on design projects with both technical and artistic skills, that is, able to integrate knowledge with know-how.

This is the reason why the educational project of the new course has a double approach – historic-artistic and technical-laboratory-oriented – so that students may be trained so as to have concrete possibilities of working with companies.
