Enterprises” promoted by the Coordination of Afam non-state institutions, which brings together various entities including higher institutes of musical studies and fine arts academies, to take stock of the system of high artistic, musical and dance education in Italy.
The event served to understand the state of health of the sector in the broader panorama of national teaching, and made it possible to create a bridge to connect training and professions, also with a view to internalization and development of Made in Italy .

«Cians – explained the president arch. Fabio Mongelli – in an increasingly broader and in step with the times form, is called upon to become a serious and credible protagonist, capable of generating institutional interlocutions of the highest profile and forming opinions. Not just one voice, but multiple voices: those of all CIANS training bodies, called to feed information and enrich the projects and activities that are carried out daily. A path aimed not only at artists, professionals and intellectuals, but also at the “base”, understood as an active community that participates in the artistic/design process. In this sense the artistic training path is a real revolution that perfectly expresses competence and knowledge. CIANS is therefore called to be the natural “dispenser” of this process. And it is also for this reason that the institutional website ciansedu.it is online today”.
