Bookmark and Share

Numerous collaboration initiatives with the university and professional world in Italy and abroad

Marmomacc has always been convinced that the culture of stone materials in teaching architecture and design is a fundamental aspect in the training of future professionals - and this is why the next edition of the event (scheduled in Verona 21-24 September) has confirmed and expanded its efforts in the university and post-university field.
Shows, conventions and seminars in the Forum area will once again by the cultural heart of the 2011 event: here, the world of stone design and architecture can measure up with new and impressive experiences.
The Milan Polytechnic University Master course over the four days of Marmomacc 2011 will involve an “Interior Design in Stone” study unit open to all professionals who wish to take part; it will present a series of experiments, studies and research projects in turn developed with the master-course partner companies (Arthà, Grassi 1880, Lavagnoli, Santa Margherita). The appointment in Verona will also be the occasion to present the II level University Master Course at the Design & Architecture Department of Milan Polytechnic University, titled “Architecture and Construction - contemporary design with stone”. Co-directed by Massimiliano Caviasca and Marina Molon, the Master offers specific training and the acquisition of technical skills covering production and contemporary use of stone materials by professionals taking up the challenge of architectural design with stone and marble.. The fourth edition focuses on internationalisation and will again involve universities, professors and students from European and non-European countries.
Collaboration programmes are also going ahead with several other Italian universities: Ferrara Faculty of Architecture, Trento Faculty of Engineering and Pescara Faculty of Architecture, as well as the Faculty of Architecture at Bari Polytechnic University and the Faculty of Engineering at Rome Prima University. Lastly, Marmomacc has organised training courses for 10 years by now in collaboration with prestigious professional institutions on an international scale: with AIA (American Institute of Architects), for which Marmomacc is an exclusive provider and authorised to offer training in stone design to US architects; with RIBA, the British professional architects association, and RAIC, the association of Canadian architects.
