Course for wig makers




Studying on the stage of the Teatro alla Scala under the guidance of its professionals and witnessing the light tests of the productions of the season are a unique experience



The course allows you to learn the many skills needed to design a lighting system, related to physics, electrical engineering and architecture.



The acquired skills can be applied in the various fields where it is necessary to know how to manage the light in a dynamic and effective way: live show, but also cinema, fashion, events



Practical activity is the fundamental element of the educational path: students practice in the classroom and in real theatrical contexts.
