Our history

We are the referent for the footwear and leather goods industry for both design and engineering training. This is what has motivated us every day since 1947: to build and offer the perfect training path to our students, to support them to express their talent in the making and design of shoes and bags all over the world.

We firmly believe that a career in the footwear and bag industry must be based on a deep knowledge of the product: design techniques, design, materials, components, and construction.
For this reason we rely on expert professionals and craftsmen of the Made in Italy to teach our courses, precisely because we believe that only from experts’ knowledge we can seed and nurture our students’ talent.

We are in Milan, in the city centre, in the heart of the fashion capital, the ideal place to build up your own network and to enter directly the domain of design and manufacture of shoes and bags.

Our school is international, our students come from over 50 countries so our courses are held in both Italian and English, in addition to the possibility of staying in apartments that are located in the same building of the school.
