Interior Design is an articulated system where design elements such as space, the lighting design, materials, color schemes and furnishings all work together.

It’s necessary that the Interior Designer takes into consideration all the elements of design according to the specific space in question, the level of living standards and sales goals, of the lighting and furnishings, sectors which are undergoing major adjustments following changes in behavioral habits and environmental considerations.

During the first year the student acquires knowledge of the tools used to perceive changes in objects and the capacity to generate a design project: the preliminary ideas are put on paper, verified using the computer and three dimensional programs, according to the model. In addition, he gains understanding of the historical context of the project, relations across different fields of art, fashion, communication, and architectural design. Regarding the technological area, the student learns about materials, both natural and artificial, and the finishing processes used, with particular attention given to the perception of the surface material.

The second year involves a deeper understanding of the instrumental issues, cultural and technical, developed during the first year. In addition, new areas of investigation and know how are introduced in order to complete and expand the student’s horizons. Students apply their knowledge and skills through the design of an industrial project, spacial systems and services, in both the private and social areas, experiencing at the project level all the areas in which a designer is required to operate.

The third year concerns delving further into cultural aspects of increasing complexity, and one becomes familiar with the latest tools for working with and communicating about the project with others. The project design portion becomes the main theme and the students learn to manage independently the development of a project. The students are pushed to become independent operators, to be able to make choices rationally and coherently, to relate their work before a committee and to assume precise responsibilities.

The course is recognized by MIUR as an Academic Diploma Level I
