Museum Studies

What is the role of museums in today's society? How does curatorship vary from culture to culture? How should a museum interact with the territory that surrounds it?

Our Museum Track Studies addresses these fundamental questions, providing a European and Italian perspective on the notion of museum curatorship while also focusing upon the anthropological value of the museum itself.

To deepen understanding through hands-on experience, our school offers two different internship options to choose from: the Art Restoration course, combining basic theory with intensive practice guided by a professional art restorer, or work experience with one of our partner museums whereby students gain firsthand knowledge of the Italian approach to running a museum—vital information which may later be used in comparing European and American methods.
