The course aims at elaborating on the future of sports car design through the analysis of current design trends and through philosophical thinking about the profound changes that the “car product” is undergoing. The availability of new and innovative energy sources, from solar to hydrogen, will not only create new machines but also a radical shift in the transportation paradigm. Aesthetics and the use of sports cars will go through a complete rethinking and a new vision is required. The objective of this course is to create a new design vernacular for future sports cars through a semiotic analysis of the significance of sport and its relation with the human being. At the Ferrari and Lamborghini Museums, it will be possible to examine in depth the significance of sports cars in the very context where they were first created. The Master Course “Sustainable Beauty: A New Version for Future Sportscars” offers a legally recognized degree (60 ECTS Credits) by The European University of Rome https://www.universitaeuropeadiroma.it/ www.maranello.academy Read less

Unlike traditional design, integrated design is not a one-sided and uni-disciplinary justifiable action, but in order to generate a durable and sustainable design solution, it uses a holistic, three-way assessment. Thus, in order to be accepted and implemented in practice, the design solution must be "sound" - according to the "ecologically necessary versus technologically possible" binomial - from the ecological point of view, be fair, equitable and timely, from the point of view of ethical, social and economic view, as it must be designed to meet a certain utilitarian function, and to aesthetically enrich and signify a product, a space, a service, or an individual.
