Permanent Learning Program - Annual Course



The groups are made up of art students, curators, collectors, specialists, artists, architects, designers, etc. The idea is to debate in a way that each theme is a trigger to question and reflect on the contemporary. The historical context of the reference productions is fundamental and specific; they do not belong to the time of the treasure and to that of late capitalism. The theme of the art market, therefore, also enters the debate.
