The internationalisation process of RUFA continues. After having made exchanges with European and non-European countries operative, thanks to the Erasmus+ circuit and the partnership signed with Aiesec, the Academy of Fine Arts legally recognized by the Miur continues its collaboration with the School of Visual Arts in New York, with the Delegation of the European Union of the Council of Europe, with the Holon Institute of Technology, the Goethe Institut, the Academy of France, the Central Saint Martins in London. From a didactic point of view, the number of courses given in English is increasing. For the Bachelor degree courses: Painting, Sculpture and Design for humans; for the Master degree courses: Multimedia arts and design – Digital humanities, Film arts, Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking. The aim is to enable students to be even more aligned with the creative industry market, to respond to the challenges of globalization and to give form and substance to a process of internationalization that has been underway for a long time.
In this scenario, on October 11, at RUFA Pastificio Cerere, the “Niccolo Machiavelli” High School, which carries out its activities in the San Lorenzo district, will conclude the project “Tracing and shaping our linguistic cultural heritage”. Some students, coming from Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain, will present to the school community the results of the study week that will take place in Rome. Altogether there will be five different workshops in which 50 students will take part to discuss the themes of creative writing, theatre, public speaking, and the fight against the so-called “hate speech”. The red thread that connects the activities of the project week is: “language as an object and agent of transformation”.
A very interesting training path, which is part of the Erasmus+ plan, made possible thanks to the work carried out by the management of the school that has shared the opportunities offered by the experts of the John Cabot University in Rome, the Fondazione Mondo Digitale, Binario F from Facebook and the Rome University of Fine Arts.
