Due to the recent pandemic situation, for the courses held between September 2020 and January 2021, YAC has taken extraordinary measures to ensure the best performance of its activities and to facilitate access to its courses. In accordance with safety criteria, participation in the courses will be possible through a remote connection. Five scholarships are available for the full cost of enrollment and the full rules of the course are available on YAC's website.
Architecture has always played a key role in exhibitions. Museums and expositions are not only a cultural offer, but are defined by space, by an exhibition itinerary that is able to surprise and fascinate the visitor looking for an active and inspiring experience.
For exhibitions, architecture is as fundamental as the works of art, collections and artifacts. The “Architecture for Exhibition” course has been created on these premises: its aim is to train professional designers to materialize diverse artistic and museum experiences, enhancing the unique story behind each cultural proposal. Students will acquire new skills in exhibition design and will move in a very prestigious environment – culture – which today registers increasing demand by the most critical and exclusive customers.
Preservation practices, lighting techniques and perception psychology will be the focus of the course, to deepen participants' knowledge of technical practices to adopt in an exhibition design. The course will consist of 88 hours of lessons, a 32-hour workshop and multiple lectures by well-renowned professional architects. At the end of the course, YACademy’s Placement office will guarantee every student an internship or collaboration proposal in one of our partner studios.
YAC is an association which promotes architectural competitions aimed at fostering culture and design research. Over the years, YAC has broadened its experience of work and collaboration with the main architectural firms of contemporary architecture, dealing with diverse and numerous topics of architectural design. Today, YAC’s expertise can serve young designers by providing them with high-level educational programs aimed at polishing the skills of the students and offering them a valuable connection to the labour market.
Thanks to close relationships with internationally renowned professional and academic figures, YACademy is the perfect frame within which to complete or specialize one’s skills, and to create a significant link with the most internationally-renowned architectural firms. The location of the courses, also available via remote connection since 2020, is the prestigious headquarters of YACademy: a medieval building located in the heart of Bologna’s historical city center, close to the Two Towers and next to Piazza Santo Stefano - namely, one of the most picturesque areas of the city.

The workshop will present a practical opportunity to test and recapitulate all the notions learned during the other lessons. It will offer strategic solutions concerning a real architectural project. The course will be conducted in collaboration with MUDETEC (Museum of Automobili Lamborghini Technologies).
Students will be given the rare opportunity to work on the 2021 set-up of the Lamborghini Museums - imagining, through their work, a museum itinerary aimed at telling the story of innovation and the identity of one of the most famous brands in the world. By showcasing models and parts of cars that have made design history in the automotive field, the challenge that the students will face will be to transmit the high content of technological and design innovation brought about by Lamborghini cars over the years.
The students must also be able to make a widespread yet refined use of the most advanced edutainment and digital storytelling technologies: the ambition of the exhibition setting cannot be limited to the user’s experience at the museum, but must also open up to a logic of narration and maximum spreading on the most diverse social and communication channels. With the most famous luxury-car brand in the world behind it and an invaluable collection of cars, MUDETEC will guarantee the participants the unique opportunity to link their names to a creation for a true legend of Made in Italy: Automobili Lamborghini.
