The Cinematographic Costume is a two-year course, which covers all industrial and business topics related to the costume department. The course typically requires around 950 hours, varying according to the expected production.

I Year - History and Techniques

The cinematographic costume is a fundamental element of the creation and construction of the characters and the story, as well as the look and the way a movie is filmed. As for people, the costume can never be generic, as it is the result of reality; this is why the work of the costume designer can be assimilated to that of an anthropologist. The first year, therefore, focuses on the basic elements and foundations of the history of the cinematographic costume, the organization of the department, the manual skills and the tailoring techniques, parallel to the literacy of the cinematographic language of all departments and basic computer science....

Lessons are directly relevant to the requirements and skills needed for the Master’s year, which is the ideal continuation of this course.... [-]
