Cultural practitioners in the art world are experts who comprehend the multitude of art practices and contemporary art sources, preparing them for business activity within the art industry. Notably, according to UNESCO, Italy has the highest number of World Heritage Sites, and the ‘greatest concentration of universally renowned works of art in the world’ can be found in Firenze – home to Istituto Marangoni’s School of Art. Participants learn how to decode the cultural and social significance of the contemporary art world. Through solid research and analyses of visual materials, art, sculpture, contemporary objects and images, participants explore the language and meaning of art, and understand how to articulate their ideas, and successfully communicate their findings to a knowledgeable art audience, as well as to the general public. They learn highly valued transferable skills in visual interpretation, critical awareness, creative thinking, and effective written and oral skills, covering all professions and careers in the arts, and creative industries. Communication skills provide a professional approach in the negotiation and presentation of research to institutes and clients, or if working as an independent art critic.

The whole Art History & Culture course has a strong cultural perspective and an intense calendar of field trips to museums, galleries, exhibitions, sculpture parks, and art institutions in Firenze and the surrounding regions. Enhanced artistic knowledge and professional art training is provided via the collaboration with Istituto Marangoni’s Paris-based partner Atelier de Sèvres, the professional studio and art laboratory preparing participants portfolios for entry to the most prestigious art colleges, and for careers in the world of art. Participants are provided with the tools to help them ‘see’ what is around them in the complex world of arts. In this art course they learn how to apply analytical thinking, providing a logical argument and conclusion in their analysis in order to become the cultural and creative thinkers of the future working for museums, cultural foundations and art galleries, on exhibitions and art publishing, in auction houses and for all management and administrative areas of the arts industry.
