Our history

ARSUTORIA is the world leading school for footwear and bags professionals.

We strongly believe that a career in the field of shoes 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 students of the 12-week pattern making and prototyping course can have their prototypes of shoes manufactured.

A portion of our students aims at creating their own brand. Another part of our graduates represents the younger generation of footwear companies’ owners.

On average 50% of our students are financed by a company.

With students from over 50 countries we offer all courses in English. Average age of our students is 25. Most of them already have a working experience. Therefore, we have specialized our offer on short courses. Although part of our students already has an experience in the field, our courses start from the fundamentals.

Thanks to the intensity of the program, students always achieve more than they expected. All our teachers are professionals with a significant working experience in prestigious companies. Their heritage is in design and manufacturing of quality shoes.

Our students work in companies with different target prices. We teach them how to match their pricing requirements while keeping high quality standards.

The school is located near the center town of Milan. We offer accommodation in apartments located in the same building of the school.

Since 2015 ARSUTORIA school is certified ISO9001 and it is accredited for technical training.
