The chair in the Faculty of Design at the Politecnico of Milan, entrusted to the Fondazione Cologni and dedicated to “Metiers d’Art and Italian Beauty”, has been renewed for the academic year 2019-2020. The course aims to spread knowledge of the immense heritage of Italian creativity and expertise, a founding element of the best Italian production. Beauty is told as an expression of talent, an essential characteristic in Italian production and, at the same time, closely connected with the metiers d’art. Through understanding and decoding the “construction” of beauty, it is possible to recognise the material and immaterial heritage that has always been a source of for design, and of creative inspiration.
At present, considering the measures to contain COVID-19 and in compliance with the Decree Law, the lessons by Alberto Cavalli are held remotely, every Thursday at 9.15 a.m.
