Our path

The ASP educational activities start in January and are distributed in parallel to the two-year courses of the Laurea Magistrale programme.

ASP courses are one-week, intensive modules, typically residential; they take place during summer, winter and spring periods.
ASP Projects start in the first year, with presentation of possible topics to be chosen by students, and proceed with exploration, concept generation and analysis throughout the two following years.
A final period of intensive analysis and design is planned at the end of the programme, before the final exam.
The ASP educational activities start in January and are distributed in parallel to the two-year courses of the Laurea Magistrale programme.

Venues

When the ASP was created in 2004, one of its objectives was to develop the highest interaction possible among the different disciplines taught at the two Politecnici partners. In order to achieve this interaction, the ASP adopted an innovative approach to the organization of the educational activities. Hence, all our efforts to plan our educational activities in full time weekly schools, separately located. Venues of our schools have been VeneziaCernobbio (on the lake of Como), Lignano on the Adriatic Coast, Cagliari in Sardegna, Belgirate on the Lake Maggiore, Bardonecchia and Sestriere in the Alpi Piemontesi, Neaples, Loano on the Ligurian Sea. These are places where students, professors, board and staff have the opportunity to spend a full time week together, discussing and also enjoying those social activities that are essential for creating a community.
