The Academy

First Level Academic Diploma.
Accredited by the Ministry of Instruction, Universities, and Research.

The MADE program is the new project of the “Rosario Gagliardi” Academy of Fine Arts.
MADE as in produced, fashioned.
The MADE Program, as in Mediterranean Arts and Design Program.

A training program in which practice and critical theory are both fundamental components in constructing an imaginary itinerary that touches on the golden age of the Italian city-states, the Renaissance, and, in the more recent epoch, the project for a “unitary school of art” that Bruno Paul outlined in 1918 when he laid the basis for the Bauhaus.
A challenge for those who still believe in the value of culture.

Design

First level academic diploma.
Accredited by the Ministry of Instruction, Universities, and Research.

MAN MADE, our three-year course in design, views the discipline of design as an instrument for creating new products and communication strategies that can play a decisive role in a process of change involving production, economics, and society.

LEARNING GOALS

The course aims to respond to the urgent needs of our contemporary global ecology through the study and application of new systems of production and information technology, while drawing on local and artisanal systems of production. This means working with materials and with graphics, designing new products and new communications systems, coming to terms with new technologies, but also rethinking the role of local, artisanal, and industrial production in the contemporary world, questioning the ways we produce, market, and consume objects.

PROFESSIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

As young designers, students will be called upon to refine their understanding of themselves and their interests and to contextualize that understanding in the present, focusing on reaching a comprehension of the profound repercussions that their work will have in the world. New graduates, at the conclusion of an itinerary aimed at promoting the development of European-dimension professional skills, will be able to apply their skills as professionals in firms and companies working in the fields of product and service design, visual and multimedia communications as well as in private and public cultural and educational institutions. The training offered in the course will constitute a solid basis for studies in second level degree programs, both in Italy and abroad.

THREE YEAR PROGRAM FACULTY

The teaching faculty in the three-year program is comprised of teachers, designers, and artists with solid qualifications and experience acquired at important Italian and international academies and universities.

FORMAFANTASMA Andrea Trimarchi / Simone Farresin

“From their very first projects they effected a small revolution in the way of conceiving design, putting the emphasis on the material rather than the product, paying more attention to the process rather than the form. From bread to coal, from fish skin to wood, from sponges to lava, the vocabulary of their work is characterized by being a long list of materials, at times quite common and at times special because “listened to” as though they were primordial elements.” Elena Bordignon, Vogue

FIRST YEAR: I AM

The first year is devoted to who you are as a young designer. You will have to find yourself in materials, colors, shapes, and images. The educational approach will be a mixture of theory and practice in which even the most theory-intensive courses will be translated into practical exercises aimed at understanding both the potential and limitations of the basic instruments of design as well as developing your own visual vocabulary.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Starting in the first year, extracurricular activities will include museum visits, workshops, outside internships, and study trips, first in Italy and then abroad.

SECOND YEAR: YOU ARE

The second year will be a confrontation with the other. You will be asked to apply what you learned in the first year to objects or instruments of communication in the service of another person. Specifically, you will be guided to develop greater awareness of form and composition, and the context in which your design will be put to work. Your teachers will not only push you to learn from them, but above all to interrogate yourself and to question the status quo in order to develop original and innovative ideas.

STUDY VISIT

In the second year, a study trip will be organized to a European country where students will visit local museums as well as design firms and companies useful for their professional growth.

THIRD YEAR: WE ARE

The third year will be dedicated to your thesis project. You will decide whether to concentrate on product design or visual and video communication. This will be the year in which you reach maturity as a designer and you will be called upon to see your work as a designer as part of a larger, more complex system. If, for example, you have to design a chair in oak, your first step will be to learn the workings of the wood industry, how a forest grows, and essential elements of environmental protection.

Visual arts

First level academic diploma.
Accredited by the Ministry of Instruction, Universities, and Research.

The three-year course in Visual Arts and Art Practices examines the role of contemporary art in the current cultural landscape and its potential, yesterday and today, to become a powerful engine of social change.

LEARNING GOALS

The course aims to prepare students for the new contexts and roles that contemporary art has taken on with respect to a cultural landscape in constant transformation. The approach to both theory and practice will take account of the necessity of knowing the history and the relative modalities of art, on the one hand, and of investigating the influence that revolutionary mass-media technologies have had on the techniques, disciplines, and processes of doing art today. This orientation process will take into account the history and procedures tied to local artistic and artisanal production, placing this know-how in constant relationship with the most current phenomena of art in cultural contexts different and distant from our own.

PROFESSIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

Recent years have witnessed a significant evolution in the role of the artist, involved today in the productive processes of artefacts as well as in the production of scenarios for the flow of ideas that contribute to the changing urban and extra-urban contexts in which he or she is invited to work. The aim of the course is to train young artists capable of dialoguing both with other artists and actors in the art world and with institutions, government agencies, and public and private companies, contributing to the requalification of the contexts that they are called upon to observe in their local territory and in geo-political contexts distant and different from each other.

FRANCESCO JODICE

“A tireless experimenter, Francesco Jodice is the Italian artist who has reflected the most on the significance of narration. On a theme, that is, that has been incandescent for the last fifty years, in a world that depends more and more on how we represent it to ourselves.”

David Angerame, Art Tribune

FIRST YEAR

The first year focuses on the relationship between the student, modern art, and the current cultural context. Knowledge of art and of the techniques of painting and information technology are seen in relationship with studies dedicated to knowledge of ourselves, our intentions, and our artistic capacities. Courses are designed with the aim of establishing a balance of tradition and innovation through technical comparisons of “historical” techniques, such as painting and anatomical drawing, and contemporary procedures, such as information technologies and methodologies of artistic design. The aim is twofold: to consolidate the cultural bases for the artist in training and to initiate the student’s individual development of his/her personal artistic profile.

EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Starting in the first year, extracurricular activities will include museum visits, workshops, outside internships, and study trips, first in Italy and then abroad.

SECOND YEAR

The second year examines the landscape of modern and contemporary art, introducing theoretical subjects (Aesthetics, Philosophy of the Image) and practices (Photography, Computer Graphics) that allow students to explore the forms of these new vocabularies and their semiotic significance in society. To this end, encounters with artists in seminars and workshops and assignments to formulate site-specific projects will involve students in a process of self-analysis of their own artistic capacities and more generally of the role of art in contemporary society.

STUDY VISIT

In the second year, a study trip will be organized to a European country where students will visit local museums as well as design firms and companies useful for their professional growth.

THIRD YEAR

The third and final year brings students to the final phase of their training. Further studies in art (Performative Techniques for the Visual Arts) social sciences (Cultural Anthropology) and media (Direction), will provide students with a broader outlook on the cultural and professional opportunities and roles available to the artist in today’s society. The degree thesis will function as a conceptual umbrella and catalyst to bring together the disciplines, concepts, and experiences explored during the three years of the program, with the dual purpose of developing the student’s artistic and professional profile and allowing him/her to explore the innumerable opportunities for affecting the culture and economy of his or her local habitat.
