It focuses on developing ideas in architecture, researches on social, cultural, and physical context, as well as takes on an exploration for alternative ways of material utilization.

The objectives of “dArTe”, reflect the view that architecture is an intellectual discipline, both an art and a profession. The program, therefore, is based on the following intentions: to stimulate artistic sensitivity and creative powers, to strengthen intellectual growth and the capacity to develop creative and responsible solutions to unique and changing problems, and to help the student acquire the individual capabilities necessary for the competent practice of architecture and lifelong learning (in reference to the European Union Directive 2005/36 governing the exercise of the profession of architect in Europe).

The task of architecture is the creation of human environments. It is both an expression of human values and a context for human activity. Through the design process, architecture addresses the interrelated environmental, behavioral, and cultural issues that underlie the organization of built form. The student of architecture is called upon to direct sensitivity, imagination, and intellect to the physical significance of these fundamental issues in designing a coherent environment for people.

The Department of Architecture “dArTe”offers a five-year program (LM - 4) leading to the degree of Master of Architecture. This course is a limited entry with about 150 students each year (for entry to the five-year program students have to complete successfully an exam). The Department also offers independent research leading to the degree of Master of 1st and 2nd level; and a program leading to a Ph.D. degree in Architecture and Territory.

Quinquennial one-cycle degree course of study in Architecture (Master Degree) aims to turn out a professional with competences that characterize the generalist architect, according to the EU Directive 2005/36, that regulates and equalizes the profession of Architect in Europe.

The main purpose of the Course of Study is the transmission and integration of knowledge in the field of architecture, city and territory. The didactics is aimed at a qualification that looks at design as process of synthesis and essential moment of knowledge and construction. There are two parts to the training proposal. The first, theoretical, aims at acquisition by the student of knowledge, methods and instruments concerning the architectural experience and its history, also recent; the second, more operative, is direct towards the know-how, the acquisition of competences to enter the profession of architect.
