Teaching methods

Frontal lessons, both in presence and online, and Fellini Conference in Rimini

Assessment methods

To obtain the 3 CFU, the student is asked to draw up a project between 4/5.000 words (plus any graphics and images) dedicated to the enhancement of the audiovisual heritage, possibly (but not necessarily) linked to Fellini. The texts, therefore, will serve as an acquisition of skills - there will be no oral or written exams but only the writing of the project itself.

Possible projects:

- Curator of an exhibition related to cinema

- Realization of a film retrospective

- Creation of a festival or event related to cinema

- Implementation of an educational project for schools

- any other type of exhibition, curatorial or set-up itinerary linked to the audiovisual and archival heritage, even crossing different paths.

Teaching tools

Slides, screenings, guest lectures, conference reports, digital tools and educational platforms.
