The course in brief


Event is one of the most in-use words in current affairs: it indicates actions, periods, performances, cultural events. The event is a popularizing process and a link between the product understood as a commodity and the product understood as a cultural good; it is an activity serving a supply chain or a territory.

The Master's degree program in Product and Event Design trains product designers, communication designers, brand designers, and event designers and evolves the figure of the designer to a global consultant, capable of coordinating the entire process from conception to distribution and image dissemination.

Event is a popularizing process, it is link between the product understood as a commodity and the product understood as a cultural good, it is an activity serving a supply chain or a territory.

Product or event design requires a variety of knowledge: design history, representation techniques and communication tools, evolution of materials, transformation technologies, semantics, sociology, social and ethical implications of design.


9007_Massimo Sale Musio
The designer's core competency is to be able to shape: to shape products, but also more complex situations and processes; to be able to imagine and coordinate systems of actions to transform existing situations and make them better. But do not think that you are inventors, that you want to frame everything by following trends and measuring by the yardstick of award or success. Rather, start training yourself with curiosity, irony, self-criticism and, above all, a willingness to study, because research work is an essential part of our craft.
