A new Master's degree in History and Theory of Art and Architecture (MSTAA) in Italian and English will be offered at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI) from the autumn semester 2020. The courses will take place in Mendrisio at the Accademia di architettura and in Lugano on the USI Campus. The Master in History and Theory of Art and Architecture includes both the study of the history of architecture and art history. It is a complete Master with the aim of reversing the growing marginalisation of architecture art history studies. At the same time, the study of architecture and art history in various times in history (the middle ages, the modern age and the contemporary age) is complemented by in-depth studies on the theory and criticism of architecture, artistic literature, the history and practice of restoration (with moments of activity in the field), museology and digital humanities with an eye towards other artistic and cultural expressions (photography, cinema, theatre, literature). Practical workshops and internships in affiliated institutions complete the Master's training offer.
