The Summer school offers an intense seven-day program, made by morning and afternoon courses/laboratories/on-site work in various fields of interests with concrete opportunities of design, planning and organization. Students will discuss together the architecture Summer School themes, will visit the wineries to know their design needs will have up to four days of workshops on the theme and will present their works.
