The school’s main building is a completely new space located in Via Cerva that will focus on offering essential environments for each program, from dedicated industrial design workshops to visual design studios.
In order to foster even more professional skills, an integral part of Istituto Marangoni’s curriculum is spending time outside of the classroom to take advantage of the nearby design showrooms, workshops, and studios through courses that incorporate both theory and practice.
