The Design in Gastronomy Summer Course is taught in english and it is divided into two blocks: the first one lasts 2 weeks, from July 10th to July 21st. Last block, from July 24th to July 28th will include a trip to the spanish region La Rioja, famous for its wine.
Aim: the course is devised so that anyone linked to the world of design and/or gastronomy can acquire the basic knowledge to understand the relationship between them and move more comfortably and professionally between the two.
From the interior design of a restaurant to the label on a bottle of wine or a tin of preserves, as well as tableware, the presentation of a recipe blog or the uniform worn by waiting staff. Anything encompassed by the vast term of gastronomy is included in the wide-ranging approach of design.

This area of study and work is as wide as the professional opportunities it offers. In a short period of time, the Design in Gastronomy Summer Course aims to:
• Provide a view of the issues linked to these two fields: gastronomy and design.
• Provide a theoretical-practical introduction to the general knowledge on the relationship between gastronomy and design, from the perspective of debate, dialogue and the exhibition of a range of views.
• To learn, through lessons, lectures, examples and the viewing of audiovisual and graphic material, how to identify trends, point out their protagonists and master the keys of good design.
