«Artists and designers as Gestalter, that is, configuration operators, continuously interrupt the routine cycle with theoretical moves.»

«Now that the horizon is widening to side effects, we know that every communicative artefact leaves a trace, implies the use of resources, occupies a space of attention at the expense of another, produces waste. The ethics of responsibility opens the chapter of sustainable communication.»
Giovanni Baule, 2005
«The media are becoming “the great synchronizers of our times”: interfaces that amplify and mediate the world through images, words, signs, sounds. Multipliers of experiences, the media weave the canvas that envelops the planet ... »

«Since the distribution of all cultural forms is now based on the computer, we are increasingly “interfacing” with mainly cultural data: texts, photographs, films, music, virtual environments. Basically we are no longer dealing with a computer, but with a culture encoded in digital form.»
Lev Manovich, 2001
«Knowing the images that surround us means widening the possibilities of contact with reality; it means to see more and understand more.»

The three-year Bachelor’s Degree course is aimed at training a professional designer who works in the field of visual communication, graphics, multimedia, and online interaction.
Knowledge will be developed to translate the elements of analysis and the information content framework into new artefacts and new communication formats, both through the application of analogue and digital communication technologies and through the integration of different systems and different media for realization of cross-media solutions.
At the end of the three-year period, the individual will be a designer who possesses the skills to carry out multiple technical design activities: from the moment of conception, to design, development, and implementation, up to the production of serial formats and diffusion into the media system.
MASTER OF SCIENCE
The educational objectives of the Master of Science in Communication Design are aimed at increasing the level of theoretical and systemic skills and the creation of a designer who—after having acquired technical and design skills in the field of media and artefacts of a different nature—is able to define strategic concepts related to the design of complex communication systems, with particular reference to digital environments.
The Master’s Degree holder will be able to design innovative connections and new forms of intermedia communication, to work and interact in multidisciplinary and multicultural groups, and to play a role as designer–director with high leadership skills to guide and make a group cohesive around a vision or a design scenario.
The MSc candidate will acquire skills aimed at the formation of a critical culture of Communication Design to become a proactive individual who works within society, shaping the contents of communication with awareness and responsibility.
