he course is one of the oldest educational cores of the Scala Academy. Wanted by Tito Varisco in the seventies, the program deepens the techniques necessary for the realization of the scenes and the elaboration of the costume and equipment of a lyric and ballet production.


Teatro alla Scala

Working daily alongside the professionals of the Teatro alla Scala in the production of shows is a unique opportunity.


The students not only follow the set-ups in the scenography workshops of the Teatro alla Scala, but are instructed to devise and implement specific autonomous projects.

On the job

The experience of individual internships (300 hours each year) takes place at the most important theatrical institutions, in Italy and abroad.


Painting, sculpture, thermoforming, tool development, costumes, techniques of coloring and decorating: scenographers are versatile professionals who are adept at every aspect of stage set development with mastery in the various traditional techniques and materials and the ability to use the new IT technologies, including 3D modeling and virtual reality.
