From the Academy's workshops to international productions: in the Academic Year 2021/22, NABA activated a wide range of internships dedicated to BA in Set Design students. These are a chance to improve skills in the related field for anyone wishing to grow professionally and work as a scenographer.
The internships in the field of set design
NABA builds programmes to train students who can work in the creative industry. The internships give the chance to cover a range of roles in set design, both in theatre and live events. Among the most intriguing opportunities is that of Adele Busso. She attended a training experience with Artech FX for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. Now, she works in the same company.
Dennis Capparella and Eva Danese worked with Margherita Palli (Bachelor of Arts in Set Design Course Advisor Leader) and Eleonora Peronetti (NABA alumna and lecturer) to create "Il corridoio rosso". The exhibition curated by Giovanni Agosti and Jacopo Stoppa is part of the 23rd Triennale Milano International Exhibition until December 11. It recreates an early 20th-century bourgeois apartment shrouded in mystery. The project appendix is the book of the same name (published by SPBH Editions), collecting 39 short stories, including those by the students Margherita Airaghi, Dennis Capparella and Eva Danese.
Sabina Bratu's internship at Balich Wonder Studio focused on technical and design assistance for ceremonies, immersive shows, and brand and destination experiences. Alongside Irina Brook, Chiara Previato supported the Assistant Director on the occasion of "Il matrimonio segreto" show at Teatro alla Scala in Milan. Marina Basso, Matilde Casadei, and Romeo Gasparini did their internship in the directing office of the same theatre. While Michela Negretto took hers at the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.
Moreover, Francesca Amato's and Dennis Capparella's internships took place at the San Carlo Theatre in Naples. They worked on the opera Otello, where Margherita Palli and the assistant set designer Valentina Dellavia (NABA lecturer) curated the scenography. To conclude, Marina Basso and Irene Coveri took care of the videos and communication for the Piccolo Teatro in Milan during the "Oltre la scena Festival". These are just a few examples, but they better explain the kind of experience the students had and the career path the Academy can open up.
