The Master’s objective is to create and train a new professional figure, so-called PolisMaker.
PolisMaker is a facilitator, an urban strategist, supervising the transformation of the city and its
territory with a holistic vision. PolisMaker is a professional who combines knowledge of urban policies
promoted internationally, particularly at UN / UNECE level with technical knowledge and
sensitivity to the well-being of its inhabitants. Contributing to the spatial and territorial management,
PolisMaker takes into account existential space, economic and social dynamics that shape
everyday life, combining quality of living and economic development.
This is how Prof. Angelo Caruso di Spaccaforno, Founder of the Master Program, at Polytechnic University of Milan, defines a new and emerging professional figure in Italian and international labour market.
Prof. Caruso di Spaccaforno has led for years a course on Project Evaluation and Economic Estimation – managing the transformation of urban settlements for quality of life and economic development.
