The landmark event of Travel and Innovation, in Florence on December 2th and 3th at the Fortezza da Basso, is anticipated with a preview dedicated to the public of COOLT – Week of Culture in Tuscany.

Defining an Analysis and Guidelines for the sustainable development of Forte Marghera, military’s architecture heritage located in Venezia Mestre

Contemporary art is a driver for a real economic development and, particularly, for urban economy. On October the 13th during a conference at B.A.S.E., the Research Centre of Museo MAXXI in Rome, we will discuss on these themes.

 

The contemporary art industry, indeed, has a turnover of more than a million dollars per year and a specific weight that is increasingly influencing the internal dynamics of the economic system. Italy cannot continue to ignore this phenomenon without a strategic view. To find a solution, transferring responsibilities on the public sector is no more possible. On the contrary, the representative of the private sector must play a frontline role to collect different interests and convey them in a shared policy.

 

With this meeting, Monti&Taft makes a confrontation between the actors in the interested economical areas, to discuss about the development guidelines and about efficient actions that will impress new impulses and vital assets to the Nation.

 

These are the guests who will display the dynamics and the perspectives of the actions required: Giovanna Melandri (President of MAXXI Fundation), Michele Trimarchi (Economist – Alma Mater Studiorum Bologna), Silvia Evangelisti (Curator and Art Historian – Alman Mater Studiorum Bologna), Massimo Sterpi (Partner – Jacobacci&Associates), Carlo Gasparrini (Urbanist – Federico II University, Naples), Margherita Guccione(Director MAXXI Architecture), Marilena Pirrelli (Funder at ArtEconom24), Marilena Vecco (Erasmus Universitty of Rotterdam), Giacomo Di Benedetto (BVisible),  Stefano Monti (Economist, Monti&Taft).

“Craft and Design: the value of cultural brand” is the theme of the fifth edition of Strategic Arts Management master class to be held on November 14-15th at Palazzo Franchetti, in collaboration with the European Institute of Design and Arte Artigiana.

 

SAM master class aims to answer the question of new needs, tools and approaches emerged in the system of design and craftsmanship by exploring in an effective and sustainable way the markets of art and creative production.

 

The master class is aimed at artisan, designers, companies, makers, FabLab, students and apprentices in creative crafts.

 

SAM master class new edition is an interactive journey of experiences and sharing of communication and networking technologies for the craft and design: to learn about the markets, find out how to protect and enhance the production, optimize processes, tools and resources, in order to understand how this cluster is crucial for the realization of a cultural brand linked to the territories.

Innovative ideas and projects can become the hub of a dynamic system. Economy and society are transformed and place crafts and design at the center of a new scale of values.

 

Strategic Arts Management facilitates the approach to the new ecosystem by promoting the encounter between creative insights (soft skills) and project skills (hard skills) in a business setting.

The format proposed exceeds the logic of the classroom and chooses an unconventional place, a place of knowledge and experience sharing, to promote a new style of open management, creative and focus on sharing and growth of the intellectual capital, valuing ideas and talents.

 

The experts attending will present the excellence in the design and culture management and ensure a multidisciplinary approach, inviting participants to think cross.
