Four students, four thesis projects and one single, beautiful collaboration for a great purpose: facilitating the interaction of autistic children with the world around them. That’s how COSMO was born, an important project aimed at raising community awareness about the complex theme of autism.
Diana Ferretti – Academic Diploma in “Interior design”
Diana’s thesis is the rust of a collaboration with DU IT, a Florence-based startup that deals with research and development of multisensory therapeutic environments. The research combines two approaches to design related to autism in order to create a unique path that promotes the ability to learn in children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. The project involved the creation of a path divided into two rooms: a multisensory room that aims to help the child to learn certain skills and a room where the subject can gradually assimilate the skills acquired until they can control them safely in everyday life.
