Descripción

The Specializing Master in Design for Kids & Toys is organized in partnership withAssogiocattoli, which represents Italian manufacturers and distributors working in this industry.

Italy generally excels in design (that means culture, method and practice of project and production) in several fields like fashion, food and creativity applied to multiple activities, but in the toy and childcare productions Italian design has yet to play a key role in building a recognizable identity.

The "Design System" and "System of Enterprise", shows significant episodes but certainly not a coherent and recognizable oversight in children's products, in furniture for children, in the game and in the toy sector. From this scenario it comes a need in poly-technical and multi-skill training. Designers and, in particular, strategic designers have the role of create scenarios understanding the many aspects and skills that compose the system.
