The Summer School aims to observe the Made in Italy from a socio-cultural, productive, economic, legal, commercial, environmental, communicative point of view. The Made in Italy today represents one of the strategic assets for  developing a new political and economic model, based on the connection with the territories and in the cultural context in which they are embodied and regenerates. Around this model of development  is necessary to build new professional figure which can endorse the potential of the made in Italy as one of the most  important  brand at global level. Within the framework of Made in Italy, supporters of the Summer School will be Coldiretti and the Observatory on crime in agriculture and agri-food system.

The classes, prepared by the Scientific Committee, in collaboration with teachers, will include both lectures, workshops and practical experiences. This didactic structure will provide a unique combination of experience and education. In this regard, classes will be held in places representative of the traditional made in Italy, but also squares or streets, beaches or the countryside, as well as cultural sites of high importance. Teaching will be developed on three courses that are the main macro areas of the Made in Italy environment:
