LAB image

The Image Lab is a facility dedicated to supporting teaching and research activities in the fields of design, production and management of communicative products in audio-visual and photographic formats. The Image Lab follows a project approach that involves the use of cross-cutting and multi-disciplinary skills, whether strategic, linguistic or technical. It offers complete solutions for communication in traditional and digital media, taking care of the project in all its phases, from concept to pre-production, from production to post-production, from editing to compositing.  The Laboratory is equipped with large spaces, featuring modular and configurable studios, covering a total of about 1000 square metres. The working areas are fully equipped with professional photographic and audio-video shooting and lighting kits. Thanks to the complete modularity of the spaces, both large and small working groups can be accommodated.
