The aim of the course ARTS ECONOMICS (12 CFU) is to introduce fundamental concepts, issues, analytical tools and recent trends of economics applied to the cultural sector, including the arts (visual arts, performing arts etc.), cultural heritage and creative industries (music industry, movie industry etc.). The course will show the relationship between the cultural domains and the economic system, and how the economic theory can be used to understand and analyze economic problems in the cultural sector. To this end, the course will present the fundamentals of microeconomics and public sector economics.

The course consists of two modules, ARTS ECONOMICS I (6 credits) and ARTS ECONOMICS II (6 credits).

In particular, the second module ARTS ECONOMICS II focuses on the fundamental problems underlying the Public Economics, the public interventions and private support in the cultural sector, the role of culture in the urban and regional development, the relationship between cultural development, cultural capital and economic growth. Another topic discussed is the artists' labour market.
