Study in Italy


The Master Degree Course faces the issue of the tourism-territorial system development by focusing at cultural heritage and cultural and creative enterprises as agents of sustainable, integrated and lasting development.
Cultural, social, economic and creative activities, initiatives and services linked to tourism-territorial development must increasingly seize the opportunities given from the current period of deep change in working models and lifestyles, and promote economic, cultural, social and landscape diversity and peculiarities.
It’s crucial to enhance tangible and intangible cultural heritage as a strategic asset for the development and innovation of traditional cultural and tourist circuits through the contextual development of cultural and creative industries, promoting the processes of mediatisation and digitization of resources.
The training path of this new Master Degree Course faces these challenges with an innovative learning and training proposal, which combines theoretical preparation with applied teaching method also thanks to the cooperation of external professionals.
