The Diverse Cultures of Istituto Marangoni

The Diverse Cultures of Istituto Marangoni

MILAN, Italy — Istituto Marangoni was founded in Italy in 1935. Today, the school comprises seven international campuses and is one of the largest fashion education institutions, with a student body in excess of 4000 students. Famous alumni include Julie de Libran, creative director of Sonia Rykiel and designer Umit Benan. Through its Interschool Project, students can move between campuses while completing their studies, attending classes in Paris, London, Milan, Florence, Shanghai and Shenzhen, or any variety there of. BoF sits down with Istituto Marangoni managing director Roberto Riccio, to hear why exposure to international design capitals and student diversity are critical to fashion education.

BoF: How would you define the DNA of Istituto Marangoni?

I believe our international approach to education defines our DNA. Firstly, all of the Istituto Marangoni campuses are situated in exceptional locations within cities that have emerged as design capitals. Students have the opportunity to study at campuses in Milan, Florence, Paris, London, Shanghai and Shenzhen. The Interschool Project, our exclusive internal system enables students to take classes at any or all of the international Istituto Marangoni campuses, and to take advantage of the multiple opportunities and different features offered by each school, city, and country, while completing their degree.

The courses offered by Istituto Marangoni vary according to the location of the campus. We believe the “cultural contamination,” brought to the programmes by the locations of the schools, provides invaluable nuance to course curriculums. In Florence, for instance, the new School of Fashion, Design & Art will focus on the traditions of the Florentine craftsmanship and Renaissance art, with newly launched campus-specific courses in Menswear and Accessories that reflect this. At the end of this exclusive journey, the students have the chance to obtain a degree internationally recognised (BA Hons) with credits.
