THE WORKSHOP

The theme of the 2019 edition will focus on the rethinking of the city of Cortona and its territory.

After having identified needs and opportunities participants will freely develop a project of design, art or architecture that should be illustrated with a series of renderings to two juries.

One of the juries will be composed by the participants to the workshop, the other by university professors, members of the administration of the city of Cortona and artists. The two juries will evaluate the quality of the projects and their coherence with the premises of the workshop.

WWORKSHOP: Here you can find the project theme in detail with the Municipality of Cortona and other public and private bodies that will participate in the Workshop. Workshop


The software that the participants will learn is Blender, a software that allow to produce renderings of stunning quality. Reliable and solid, under open source license and freely usable as professional without time limits or functions FOREVER on PC, Mac and Linux.

The fact that this software is open source became a point of strength for young professionals who start their career with a powerful instrument, without any limitation. They may use it for their projects, and also to bring their “own” software to the studios where they will be hired without any problem of license.

The quality and professionalism of BLENDER are universally recognized. Just do some research on the net to have confirmation.

Participants must have previously taken a Blender course or learned it on their own.
