From February to May 2011, the Cologni Foundation chair of “Management Systems for the Métiers d’Art” held a series of classes within the Master’s degree programme for Business and Management of Cultural Heritage and Performing Arts at the Università Cattolica of Milan. The purpose of the course is to define and develop the communication, promotion and management of the finest artistic crafts.

The chair, which is sustained by the Cologni Foundation with the support of the Fondazione Cariplo, has been entrusted to Professor Paolo Dalla Sega. The classes include lectures and clinics with master artisans and experts in the field of artistic crafts, as well as visits to workshops and ateliers. From the Academic Year 2011/2012, the activities will carry on without the economic support of the Cologni Foundation, which will continue to give its cultural and specialised support.
