Master in Arts Management - IED Florence

Course Description

The Master in Arts Management is divided into two operational modules, characterised by a distinct course of study in relation to the city in which it takes place, each involving an examination and a final project. Some of the subjects of the course cut across the modules, while others are specific and unique to each location.

The Master is held in partnership with the Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, the MIBAC (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities) in Rome and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice.

At the end of the course, students will be ready to work in arts and cultural companies and institutions (e.g. museums, foundations, galleries, festivals, auction houses), in the so-called cultural sectors (national and international cultural institutions, profit and nonprofit), in areas related to contemporary art and with large enterprises investing in the cultural market (banks, insurance companies, banking institutions, event management companies, trade fair organisations, art foundations, exhibition production companies, or companies operating in the communication world).

FLORENCE - Design of exhibitions and events
The Florence module focuses on developing specific skills to manage the different organisational phases of a Cultural event: from the design to the identification of partners and sponsors, to communication management and content creation. As a group, with the support of teachers and the course coordinator, students will plan and create one or more cultural events with real clients.

ROME - Art Direction: focus on festivals
The goal of this module is to develop a new approach to artistic heritage management. The Master’s semester in Rome combines the huge culture that the city plays at international level with the vivacity of the backgrounds that characterises its urban culture. With the support of new technologies, students will explore possible cultural convergences that stimulate interest and participation.

VENICE - 1 week Workshop
In partnership with the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, students will participate in a one-week workshop in Venice. They will visit the main institutions and meet the professionals of the Peggy Guggenheim.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is one of the most important museums in Italy for European and American art from the first half of the Twentieth century. It is located in the home of the famous collector Peggy Guggenheim, at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal in Venice.

Ambra Falabella

I decided to enroll in the IED Master in Arts Management because after my university studies I needed to have a more modern approach in arts and cultural heritage management. The IED has given me the possibility to meet many professionals that actively work in art management and their experience has led me to a personal and professional growth; moreover these experiences will allow me to have a less scholastic approach t this subject. The Master took place in several IED locations: Florence, Venice,Rome, where I discovered various excellence reality and I touched closely different areas of the Arts management world

(Student Profile)

Lucia Pedrana

I studied at IED Florence as second stage of the Master of Arts Management. The 18 months program included 3 semesters, each in one of the most beautiful art city in Italy: Venice, Florence and Rome. After studying cultural Heritage, got a Master in History of contemporary arts, I had internship and working experiences into museums and cultural institutions but I always felt there was something missing. That's the reason why I wanted to follow the Arts Management route, this is what our Italian institutions need to function and improve: combination of Arts & Culture knowledge together with managerial and communication tools.
