Our focus is on the cultural aspects of new projects, from Design to Architecture, from Communication to Urban Planning, in order to define and instruct indispensable professions for the development of Italan society. Made in Italy is not simply a description of objects and products, it has roots in history, in artisans workshops from the Renaissance to today, passed down through a specific awarness of the anthropology and culture of the Italian territory. These are the considerations at the base of the new IED project: a Master in Arts Management that utilizes Italy as a resource through three unique cities: Rome, Florence and Venice. IED operates in all three, focusing on handicraft and know-how, elements that cannot be copied nor globalized but that are recognizable worldwide as a cultural and expressive heritage. In order to capitalize on these elements, Italy needs new professional profiles: people that come from a humanities or science background who can see beyond our particular characteristics and translate them into cultural universals. A small community is not only an expression of local identity; it has the potential to become a global experience without betraying its roots and history. This culture of the territory, added to partnerships with institutions such as the MAXXI Museum of Rome, the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi of Florence and the Guggenheim Museum of Venice, is the principal guide along our chosen study path. Beyond mere economics, we will explore the economy of knowledge, as if inspiring new Leonardos, moving effortlessly through science, the visual arts, tradition and culture in search of Leonardo da Vinci’s complete and balanced Vitruvian man. Vinci is not a last name, it is the name of the little town where Leonardo was born in 1452. It is from the Italian territory that we will begin our studies, looking at the future through the past.

IED Istituto Europeo di Design The place where thoughts become new shapes. IED, Istituto Europeo di Design, owes its establishment in 1966 to the intuition of its President Francesco Morelli. Day by day, it has become a 100% Made in Italy international network of excellence, operating with study programs and research in the disciplines of Design, Fashion, the Visual Arts and Communication. IED is far more than a school: thanks to its unwavering commitment to innovation, it is the melting pot where new generations of professionals meet the challenge of the new reality. AN ADVANTAGE AND A CHALLENGE The advantages of choosing IED are: • Creating and designing together with colleagues from different countries and cultures; • Interfacing with skilled professionals in different fields; • Encounters with leading experts of art, cinema, research, and cultural institutions during the rich program of lectures; • Active partecipation in workshops held by internationally renowned professionals. The challenge that every IED student faces – and wins – is to benefit from the confluence of these stimuli and cultures, in order to pursue his/her personal path towards that of an independent professional. THE VALUE OF AN INTERNATIONAL NETWORK All IED locations are connected and exchange content and contributions. Students and lecturers move from one city to another to broaden their world views. The goal is a strong interaction and cross-fertilisation. IED is a truly unique network of encounters, experiences, people and cultures. Students develop a deep sense of belonging. Their drive to innovate and share resources, ideas and contacts forges a tight-knit community. IED belongs to Cumulus, the International Association of Universities and Colleges of Art, Design and Media, and has stable relations with many universities and international academic associations, including Erasmus, Socrates, ELIA, IAA, FIYTA, IIE, EAIE and MEC in Brazil.

IED MASTERS An experience that matters Above all, IED Masters offer the opportunity to explore conceptual and design frontiers that stretch beyond the locations and the classrooms that host the courses. IED Masters launch professionals that have the skills to: - deal with complexity in the contemporary world; - confidently tackle the new requirements of production; - open windows onto potential new worlds; - interact competently in the professional environment. If training is the goal, design is the mean of transformation. Designers are not only called upon to meet demand in productive, cultural or social terms. In order to meet the new requirements of the market, they must also be able to formulate new questions. An IED designer acquires the skills it takes to define innovative hypotheses, work on the raw nerves and the uncertainty of the world to come and above all, provide new visions of the world we live in. IED MASTERS STRUCTURE IED Masters are flexible in structure and content, capable of providing effective answers to students who aim to excel in the areas of creativity and management. They are based on the driving principles of Italian design: an open, curious and enterprising mindset and the urge to transform scenarios through technical competence and creativity. The 1st level Masters Courses are the right tool for students to transform their professional careers. They target people who have studied in other fields and have therefore a triple function: - to enhance each individual talent; - to redirect training objectives towards the creation of eclectic, innovative professional profiles with specific skills; - to offer a customized training curriculum. The 1st level Master Courses facilitate those who have already started training in these areas to build on their experience, in order to attain eligibility for 2nd Level Master Courses. The 2nd level Master Courses are divided into Research and Professional. The Research Masters are open and multidisciplinary courses. What students learn in IED Research Masters is the logic of problem-setting, and the ability to recognize the issues that beset an ever transforming world, in which every solution has a primary obligation to be sustainable. Students from faculties with similar or equivalent contents are eligible for the Research Masters. The Professional Masters are vertical, in-depth, specific curricula that target students who aspire to achieve excellence in innovative professions. What students learn in the IED Professional Masters is the ability to generate valid responses to new problems, applying the logic of problem-solving. The courses are modular and flexible, so that all participants have the opportunity to define the professional identity that suits them best. Students from related faculties are eligible for the Professional Masters.

OBJECTIVES AND CONTENTS ITALY_BETWEEN PAST AND FUTURE Italian Art describes the visual arts in Italy from ancient times to the present. In Ancient Rome, Italy was a major producer of art and architecture. Legions of Italian artists in the Romanesque and Gothic periods led to the flowering of all the arts in one of the great achievements of mankind: the Italian Renaissance. Later styles in Italy included Mannerism, Baroque, Rococo, and the 19th century group of the Macchiaioli. Futurism was an Italian avant-garde in the 20th century. Florence is cultural capital of Italy for its museums of painted and sculptural art. Why does Art need Managers? The artistic and cultural market nowadays is developing new commercial and communication needs. IED aims with its new Arts Management course to prepare a new professional profile capable, in the near future, of designing new systems based on the artistic and cultural necessities of artists, foundations, heritages and every activity related to the future growth of our society. As a design school network IED offers a new academic opportunity to all those aspiring professional that seek to enjoy an extraordinary experience in some of the most famous Italian historical cities and to share their dreams and hopes with renowned professionals. Why in three different cities? Rome, Florence and Venice are three different cities each with a superb artistic and historical heritage; this heritage attracts cultural events and tourists: a contemporary Grand Tour to learn the added value of art and culture.

PROFESSIONAL FIGURE The Arts Project Manager is a new profile in the art world, one which can identify original content and organize detailed programming, as well as planning and fundraising for the necessary resources. He/she has a full understanding of the strategic positioning of cultural products. The Course provides the graduate with the ability to be in charge of financing and to manage cultural organizations, defining the product and services of the organization in the context of a specific Arts market. The student will learn to coordinate organizational activities and to be in charge of the communication process with both public and private organizations. Basic Fundraising will be taught during the course. This includes notions such as raising funds/finding sponsorships for the organization/promotion of arts events, identifying financing opportunities, determining the resources necessary for financing a project, analizing financial requirements organizing fundraisings. Managing advertising contracts and commercial agreements is a subject that will be dealt with as part of the fundraising class, as is the process of selecting an appropriate media communication defining membership policies/coordinating partnerships.

EDUCATIONAL METHOD The Master in Arts management is subdivided into three operational modules that have an individual study path related to the city they take place in. Each module will end with an exam and a final project. The courses are partly carried through the entirety of the Masters and partly specific to the different locations. During the last phase of the course the final event will be analyzed and organized and a project articulated so that each student or student group will be confronted with the realities of the artistic and cultural fields.

PROGRAM VENICE_CULTURAL MANAGEMENT SEPTEMBER 2011 | FEBRUARY 2012 The first academic module is a creative and applied workshop of new ideas and artistic and cultural developments. The first months of work will involve a design synthesis and will lead to a final phase that requires the study and presentation of a project. The project will be based on the abilities of each participant and aims at developing a design theme that allows the creation of cultural and artistic management plans applied to emerging or established artists, to museums or institutions that require a more structured, creative and innovative management of their contents and structures.

FLORENCE_EVENT PLANNING MARCH 2012 | JULY 2012 The course aims at the creation of a professional profile that is specialized in the designing, planning and organizing of complex and articulated events in the socio-cultural fields. The module focuses on the specific skills of managing the different phases of organizing an event: from the analysis of a plan, to contacting partners and sponsors, to communication management, and to the creation of content for the event itself. The resulting professional will have gained expertise in the fields of event promotion and management for a wide range of different cultural or promotional situations. The group of students, along with professors and the course coordinator, will plan and create one or more cultural events.

ROME_ART DIRECTION SEPTEMBER 2012 | FEBRUARY 2013 The purpose of this program is to develop a new approach to artistic heritage management through the historical and cultural vocations of the city of Rome. This metropolis of offers a consolidated experience in the institutional area, as well as a rich urban melting pot of international and interdisciplinary cultures. The Master’s Rome semester combines the high culture that the city interprets at international levels, and the vivacious activities and scenes that constitute its “urban culture”. With the support of new technologies the newest urban themes will betackled, in an effort to explore and develop the possible cultural convergences and promote interest and participation. Because of its history, Rome has the need to manage and enhance its immense cultural heritage, and for this it requires managerial and organizational profiles capable of dealing with its complexities.

STUDING BETWEEN VENICE, FLORENCE, ROME VENICE BETWEEN LAND AND WATER A place where the complexity of urban life is defused by the rhythms set by nature and by the relationship – the only one of its kind in the world–between the breath of the sea and the bustling busyness of dry land. Venice, the international city of commerce and history, tourism and the arts city of major exhibitions and intense emotions, of the Biennale and the Golden Lion, of Carnival along every canal and in every square, but also of silent islands and forests waiting to be discovered. Venice and its hinterland guard their history jealously, keeping not only their art, their theatre, their music and their nature alive, but also their solid manufacturing and industrial traditions. Suffice to cite the leather footwear district along the Riviera del Brenta and the world-famous artistic glass blowers of Murano, both crafts with venerable manufacturing traditions and a strong international vocation. IED IN VENICE - IED Venice, on Certosa Island since 2007, opens its new location in the city centre, in the Palace of the Querini Stampalia Foundation. As the school is based on creativity and experimentation of new languages, for its new seat IED chose a place where the different expressions and viewpoints of the contemporary art compare by vocation. FLORENCE A NEW RENAISSANCE Florence is the major Italian city from an artistic and cultural point of view, and is also considered the capital of traditional Italian craftsmanship in the fields of fashion and accessories. It is located in Tuscany, where innovation and research are competitive and have an articulated industrial history. These districts have retained traditional handicraft workmanship, combining it with technological innovation in order to preserve Italian know how: “Saper far bene le cose”, make things well. These unique products that range including leather and textiles, are found in some of the most prestigious shops worldwide, such as Ferragamo and Gucci. IED IN FLORENCE - IED Florence offers a wide variety of courses (from One Day to One year) in both English and Italian language, and offers the opportunity to discover the educational offer of other IED campuses in Italy and worldwide. IED Florence was established in October 2008, in the framework of the House of Creativity. The structure is unique and represents the ideal meeting-point for intercultural exchanges and experiences, with a strong focus on innovation and contemporary arts. Its activities and courses develop through and thrive

on the region’s resources, by creating strong ties with local manufacturers, especially in the fashion industry. ROME THE ETERNAL CITY International and magnificent with its streets and its monuments, its piazzas and its fountains, Rome, home to Cinecittà, high society, social relations and cultural events, is a strategic cultural focus of indisputable prestige in the areas of the visual arts and of artistic and cultural production: cinema, music, theatre, fashion, the performing arts, video production, publishing, and advertising. Rome, the tourist destination, supported by a thriving community of small and medium-sized enter prises provides services for leisure and entertainment, as well as craft workshops and manufacturing concerns: food design, wellness design.

The people who make these hybrid production scenarios function have new requirements and need unconventional professional staff with interdisciplinary expertise. IED IN ROME - Rome is in search of unconventional professionals profiles related to creativity, fashion, filmmaking, and arts. The capital city has been interacting fruitfully with IED and welcoming our young talents since 1973, the year when the Istituto Europeo di Design opened its first school in Rome. Nowadays IED Rome has 4 schools (Fashion, Design, Visual Arts and Communication) and collaborates with major creatives and companies in town.
