OVERVIEW

Course description

In a country as Italy is, music is a strategic resource in conceiving modern tourism. This vision depends on the awareness of the historical-musical heritage the country and its traditions express in a great variety of musical heritage and activities. This heritage requires the development of a know-how able to protect and enhance it, in favour both of local cultural identity and of curious and valuable tourists.

 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to develop students' awareness of the historical musical heritage of the Country, in the variety of musical heritage (sources, instruments, musical production) and its various types (opera, early, classical and contemporary music, popular music). The methods of conservation, exhibition and production of musical heritage will be considered in terms of the protection, management and enhancement of musical heritage. Special attention will be devoted to the interaction between musical festivals, concert and opera seasons and the area where they are being organized.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The student will learn to analyse and understand in its different components the musical offer of the territory, in terms of tangible and intangible assets and events. He/she will discuss how to organise a musical season, a single event or a complex event such as a festival, taking into account the different variables of an economic, logistical, artistic and landscape nature. It will become aware of the current regulatory framework and the economic resources potentially available. It will establish a comparison between musical and theatrical life, between events and institutions in Italy and in other countries. It will be able to demonstrate the analytical and planning skills developed through the analysis of specific cases on which it will have practised.
