I am a foreing architect who got accepted to both Architectural Design and History (Politecnico di Milano) and Conservation (Roma La Sapienza) master programs. The two masters are held in English since I do not know Italian yet.
The problem is although Polimi is ranked 9th this year amongst world architecture schools, I think the ranking may differ in specific masters programs. Their ecoles, their way of theorizing and their way of teaching may differ from each other, thus it may lead an incorrect ranking.
So, I would like to learn each master's advantages and disadvantages, also which one is better in professional life and which one is in academic career, which has the best reputation, which is connected better to the rest of the world and other first class schools for a future phd etc., etc. Rome is a great city that I fell in love when I visited, but I haven't been to Mantova ever. I wonder if Mantova is too boring to live for at least 2 years?
I'll be very glad if you help me and answer my questions.
Thank you very much in advance!
Forget about architecture, sign up for a cooking class.
