Welcome to Arsutoria School in Milan, Italy

The world leading institute for design and technical training in the field of shoes and bags.

We strongly believe that a career in the field of shoes or bags must be funded on a deep knowledge of the product: engineering techniques, materials and components, technical constructions.

Arsutoria is the only school based in a fashion capital with an internal sample room where our students can have their shoes and bags prototypes manufactured with the help of expert Italian technicians.

How our courses change with COVID-19

Since February 2020 with the spread of COVID-19 the school had to suspend all training courses. Italian Ministery of Education and our Regional government have communicated that we will be able to start courses again from June 2020. Nevertheless we need to assure the safety of our students and put actions in place to prevent the spread of the virus again.

The major constrain that we need to face is the distancing. We won’t be able to use the facilities of the school as before because we need to assure a minimum distance of 1 mt. between students. For this reason we have decided to change the way we organise our classes.

The three pillars of our training will remain the same but we will change the way we organise each of them

Lessons from the teachers

Our teachers have been working hard to prepare video lessons to cover all course topics. You will be able to access these contents at your own pace from home.

Individual work

Learning by doing has always been the center of our training. We will send you all the materials you need to work. Teachers will assign homework to assess your understanding of each topic

Review with the instructor

Teachers will dedicate 100% of their time to review your individual work and to give you feedbacks and suggestions on how to make better. This is a key moment of the course
