Description of the initiative

Course with the participation of Stone Island, Framis Italia, Candiani Denim The man-machine interaction is more alive than ever in the fashion-technology interaction, that is why the workshop/course, aims, making use of collaborations with companies of the Italian System of sportswear, textiles and applied technologies related to the world of fashion and clothing - to propose laboratory and cultural, innovative and sustainable contents that allow to know the matter and its expression in the "new" fashion industry.  The achievement of this objective, passes through the use of complex methodologies that demonstrate the ability of students to create solutions applied to multifaceted projects starting from research, passing of the analysis of trends to arrive at the design process. Fundamental, it turns out, is the acquisition of an integrated approach to the textile world, which founds its origins in the Italian culture of design, investigating new techniques and needs of the "new fashion" and its sustainable relationship with society and the environment, through the choice of fabrics and finishes and design outputs that respond to these purposes.   The emotional-social aspect in the interaction between individuals is a crucial element that influences the very fabric of human relationships at all stages of life. From first steps in the world to maturity, emotional-social interaction plays a key role in shaping human connections and influencing individual and collective well-being. In recent years, one of the growing areas of research has been focusing on the mother-child relationship, and this investigation goes beyond merely educational aspects to shed light on deeper and more lasting impacts.  In particular, one of the most recent developments in the field of research is the in-depth study of mother-child relatedness and its influence on the prevention and treatment of emerging disorders, most notably autism spectrum conditions. The interaction between mother and child at this crucial stage of development reveals aspects that go beyond mere verbal or visual communication, penetrating the very fabric of tactile and emotional experiences.  Tactile interactions between mother and child convey not only affection and security, but also a range of sensory stimulations that contribute to the formation of empathic bonds and emotional regulation. These interactions, which often involve skin-to-skin contact, are essential for the building of affective bonding and the development of a solid emotional foundation in the child. This type of tactile interaction has been shown to play a crucial role in promoting the child's cognitive, emotional and social development.   However, the importance of tactile interaction does not end at the early stage of life. Even in later stages, physical contact and tactile involvement play an important role in communication and emotional expression between individuals. Tactile interaction is a powerful way to establish deep and authentic connections, conveying empathy, understanding and support without necessarily having to resort to words.  But the tactile aspect does not only have impacts on the realm of interpersonal relationships and empathy. This concept has also extended to monitoring, diagnosis and therapy practices in the medical field. Tactile sensitivity can be exploited to identify signs of emotional or physical distress, thus providing important diagnostic information. In addition, touch therapy has been successfully employed in various disciplines, from occupational therapy to physical therapy, offering both physical and emotional benefits.
