 Educational objectives

The programme takes into account the transversal nature of the contemporary landscape framework, with regard to the project dimensions, enhancement of local identities, social purpose and sustainability of the project, and the use of ecology as a tool for interpreting the complexity of the landscape and how it ┐works┐. To this end, the Faculty of Architecture of the UniversitÓ di Genova, the School of Architecture of the Politecnico di Torino,... More...

The programme takes into account the transversal nature of the contemporary landscape framework, with regard to the project dimensions, enhancement of local identities, social purpose and sustainability of the project, and the use of ecology as a tool for interpreting the complexity of the landscape and how it ┐works┐.

To this end, the Faculty of Architecture of the UniversitÓ di Genova, the School of Architecture of the Politecnico di Torino, and the Faculties of Agriculture of UniversitÓ di Milano and UniversitÓ di Torino seek to become a point of reference in the training panorama at national level, recognising the contributions of those universities that for years have been actively engaged in the landscape field, and bringing together the educational contributions of agricultural science with those of architecture to offer quality training that emphases the areas of concentration of each faculty or school:
- Faculty of Architecture of Genova: the study of landscape evolution, landscape analysis and appraisal, landscape design, reclamation and enhancement of cultural landscapes, preservation of historical sites, and landscape ecology;
- Faculty of Agriculture of Milan: planning for rural areas; restoration and rehabilitation of natural and degraded areas; urban green spaces and greenways; environmental economics; geobotanical, vegetation and agricultural analysis for purposes of landscape design; surveying; systems of representation and materials for green areas;
- II Faculty of Architecture at Politecnico di Torino: history of the garden and landscape, restoration of historic gardens, urban environmental design, landscape planning, perceptive analysis of landscape and fundamentals and theory of landscape architecture;
- Faculty of Agriculture of Torino: analysis of agricultural landscapes in their diverse biocultural components, landscape ecology, science and proper use of ornamental plants, management and maintenance of green areas with particular reference to phytosanitary concerns, management of urban ground, installation and maintenance of sports and recreational turf, planting and management of trees, environmental regulation, surveying and informatic design tools.
The training will consist of monodisciplinary lectures, multidisciplinary workshops, integrated courses, intensive workshops and seminars, visits to professional firms, internships and/or stages in Italy and abroad, with a focus on integration between disciplines.
Theoretical instruction will provide the foundation for analysis and understanding of landscape systems, landscape design and management at different scales, history and restoration of historic gardens.
The ateliers, providing practical experience in areas chosen and shared by the faculties involved, will be targeted to teaching students to apply appropriate design methodologies in all their complexity, and propose solutions using traditional and/or innovative tools.
Some activities will be organised locally by individual faculties, while others will involve more than one faculty.
