Best Undergraduate Studies in Performing Arts in Italy 2017. For more than two decades, NABA’s three-year BA in Theatre and Exhibit Design has integrated theoretical and critical studies with technical and practical work. From its launch, this program has been enriched through opportunities for students to gain significant in-the-field experience. The BA program teaches theoretical, technical, and practical aspects of subjects such as scenography, theatre design, theatre costuming, and lighting. More recently, new transversal courses in other disciplines, such narratology, and performing arts complete student training.

They develop skills with 2D and 3D design programs and audiovisual media in addition to various painting and graphical representation techniques. Students learn to make artifacts such as scenery, props, and costumes. They acquire computer and organisational skills, both through practical application in the field during various training experiences and through drawing up budgets, periodic reviews, and specifications. The course is recognized by Italian Ministry of Education and Research (MIUR) as an Academic Diploma Level I (180CF) Career Opportunities The program offers a broad spectrum of specializations relating to theatre and cinema, television, and the creation of artifacts, scenery, costumes, lighting design, and installations for every performance-related activity. Scenographers can assist theatre directors, act as set designers or interior decorators of television and cinema sets, and design and create installations for events, art exhibitions, and fashion shows. Placement The Stage & Placement office helps students and graduates identify and apply for internships and staff positions with prospective employers. 
 81% of NABA graduates find employment in positions related to their degree during the first year after graduation*.
