Corso Curatori

Teaching

Along a multidisciplinary path divided into modules, each of six months, the course examines the various thematic areas that concern the figure of the curator.

Participants may deploy their skills acquired by developing an individual curatorial project, under the expert guidance of a tutor.

There is also the chance to take part in training transfers, in seminars held by Italian and international critics and curators, as well as the initiatives of the Fondazione itself.

The participants also have access to an exhibition space in which to organise shows, a specialist library – with more than 1,000 volumes on photography and contemporary art – and a videotheque, featuring over 100 interviews with artists, critics and curators.
