The production of culture is an art we care every day, experimenting with new instruments and skills.

Designing the contemporary cultural offer and imagining that of the future: take a look at our new advanced training programme.

Advanced training

If like us you are interested in designing the contemporary cultural offer and imagining that of the future, take a look at our new advanced training programme.

Recognising the sharing of knowledge as the key to development has led us to design educational programmes investigating and exploring issues, professions and working environments for which ever-greater expertise is required: from curation to museum education, from exhibition design to digital communications, from the conservation of the contemporary to cultural marketing.

Lectures given by experts in their sectors and case studies will alternate with workshops offering the opportunity to put into practice what has been discussed in the theoretical phase.

MAXXI will select from among the best candidates to respond to an open call the participants for each course, with the objective of creating multidisciplinary groups that bring together and put online the skills and expertise that in the world of work have to cooperate and produce culture together.
