"Ugh, what a beard! Oof, what a bore!"

With this phrase the episodes of Casa Vianello, the TV sit-com starring Sandra Mondaini and Raimondo Vianello, ended; after a day peppered from with rocambolic episodes, misunderstandings, and comical quarrels, the couple wished each other good night with this phrase uttered by Mondaini, which became almost a slogan capable of entering the jargon of Italians. A phrase we now naturally associate to with something boring, repetitive; kids often use it when called upon by adults to to do something they would not like to do, such as studying. For adults, perhaps, it has instead become a kind of sentence from applied to politics, when it keeps to re-proposing to us the same scenario as always without any novelty or even hope. It is a funny phrase that helps us to downplay, to sometimes, the miseries of life, the nonsense of everyday life.


It is possible that continuing studies after a three-year academy, extending them for two more years, could be a path from dismissed with a peremptory "Ugh, what a beard!" Yet the sought-after, chosen and desired study, which further enhances our knowledge base, can truly prepare us for the test of work. Titling a two-year term "Ugh, what a beard!" is not meant to be a provocation, but a theme on which to orient two years of study, comparison and verification; two years dedicated to the theme of "beard" declined in all its variants: boredom, of course, but also the endless beards that populate theatrical or literary texts, fairy tales, the beards of real-life characters or those of the protagonists of the seventh art. An ironic phrase, then, that can accompany us by offering the possibility of investigating multiple languages and multiple worlds of artistic expression.
