THE FUTURE OF THE TEXTILE SECTOR IS IN GOOD HANDS: THE ISTITUTO TECNICO SUPERIORE MACHINA LONATI (MACHINA LONATI TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL) TRAINS TECHNICIANS, FASHION MANAGERS AND FUTURE DESIGNERS.
ITS MACHINA LONATI is the result of a transformation of the I.T.S. Fashion and Design Institute, which was the first vocational school in Italy for professional training oriented to applied research. ITS MACHINA LONATI is the new state school created to train super-technicians through courses in fashion and marketing, fashion communications and accessory design. It offers post-secondary training that develops in parallel with university courses. ITS MACHINA LONATI’s work is part of the national path toward technical and professional education reform that aims to recover the annual deficit of intermediate technicians (estimated at 110,000 units). Study at ITS MACHINA LONATI is characterized by high technical-scientific training, and the school has formed continuous relationships with businesses to promote opportunities for students to explore their line of study. The course of technological designer allows students to develop, design, cultivate and express their innate creativity through design and technology, while the marketing and communications course provides fashion companies with highly qualified professionals ready to work.The accessory designer course trains professionals whose designs are linked to the fashion world and other production sectors via use of advanced 3D programs, with special attention given to the choice of materials, product feasibility and sustainability.
The MachinaImpresa project is a new business model which has been developed to aid a group of creative young people under the age of 30, seeking to achieve entrepreneurial ability and autonomy, in line with the need of a medium-term re-launch of Lombardy’s manufacturing sector.
