«Can the mystery
of a forest
be expressed
by mea­sur­ing
the height
of the trees?
Is it not rather
its fath­om­less depths
that stir
the imag­i­na­tion?»
(Claude Debussy)

Are you a doctor, a speech therapist, a physiotherapist, an artist?
Would you like to work in the field of Performing Arts Medicine?

«Per­form­ing Arts Med­i­cine is a branch of Med­i­cine (in Italy, and almost in the whole World, orphan of a spe­cif­ic Spe­cial­iza­tion School) that rep­re­sents a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary field that not only con­cerns doc­tors but also many oth­er fig­ures and skills, such as psy­cho­log­i­cal ones and the human­is­tic-philo­­soph­i­cal ones. In col­lab­o­ra­tion with those who expe­ri­ence Per­form­ing Arts first­hand (actors, dancers, buskers, singers, cir­cus per­form­ers, voice actors, engi­neers, musi­cians, direc­tors, etc.), it aims to achieve both ath­let­ic and ultra-pre­cise artis­tic ges­tures and also the extreme respect of the phys­i­ol­o­gy that under­lies them. Thus, it deals with the pre­ven­tion, diag­no­sis, ther­a­py and rehabilita­tion of the dis­eases of pro­fes­sion­als in the enter­tain­ment world in the teach­ing cen­ters, in the clin­ics and in the the­aters. Per­form­ing Arts Med­i­cine is, there­fore, in some ways, sim­i­lar to that “of Sport”, also embrac­ing many skills of the “Occu­pa­tion­al” one. From both, how­ev­er, it is, at the same time, very dif­fer­ent; to say and think that it is only Med­i­cine aimed at the treat­ment of pro­fes­sion­al and gener­ic dis­eases of artists is, in fact, lim­it­ing. Indeed it should not be just “Med­i­cine for Artists”. Its pur­pose should be to take care of the Art itself. A legit­i­mate and intrigu­ing ques­tion aris­es: how can you con­tribute to mak­ing Art ever health­i­er with­out deplet­ing it of its inti­mate being just Art? This is the chal­lenge; this is the dif­fi­cul­ty! This is why to tru­ly take care of Art and Artists, oth­er artists and human­ists are needed!»
