Istituto Marangoni Takes Miami
Italy’s renowned fashion institution, Istituto Marangoni, has opened its 10th location (its first in the United States) this past January.
Founded in Milan in 1935, the fashion, art and design school has trained some of the most famous fashion icons including: Domenico Dolce, Franco Moschino and Paula Cademartori.
The prestigious institute currently enrolls 4,000 students per year from 107 countries at its Paris, London, Shanghai, and Mumbai locations. However, the most exciting news for U.S. based students is that the institute will be offering $1 million worth of scholarships to new students at the Miami campus.
Why take Miami? Istituto Marangoni searched for a destination that not only was a cultural hub for the arts, but also was easily accessible from other fashion-centric countries, especially those in Latin America.
The company has stated:
“Bringing Istituto Marangoni to the Americas satisfies a long-term vision to support and develop youth interested in fashion and design from all over the world,” said group managing director Roberto Riccio. “We are thrilled by the opportunity to give emerging talent in the Americas a platform to hone their skills and realize their true potential in the industry.”
As Istituto Marangoni takes Miami, it is apparent that "The Future is Foreign" and that includes Italian language & culture.
