Interior Design from an Italian Perspective:

Francesca Vargiu + Elena Pacenti

COLLEGE LECTURE SERIES—NewSchool of Architecture and Design, a leading design college in Southern California based in San Diego along Park Boulevard, is presenting an informative round table on Aug. 8 at 6 pm called “Interior Design from an Italian Perspective.”
Featured speaker is Francesca Vargui of Domus Academy in Milan, Italy, who will be joined by Moderator Elena Pacenti, Director of the Domus Academy School of Design at NSAD/NewSchool of Architecture and Design. Pacenti was formerly with Domus Academy in Milan, Italy.
The free admission discussion outlines the humanistic roots of the Italian Design approach and how it applies to interior design techniques and evolving trends such as globalization, the blurring of interior and exterior spaces, and multi-purpose space functions.
The Italian Design approach forms the foundation of the recently-created Bachelor of Interior Design program offered through San Diego’s Domus Academy School of Design at NSAD. The Domus Academy School of Design at NSAD emphasizes the study and application of global design approaches through an Italian Design perspective; it is a collaborative effort between NSAD and the award-winning Domus Academy in Milan, Italy, which has consistently been named among the World’s Best Design Schools by Business Week magazine.
Appetizers and beverages served.
Where: NewSchool of Architecture and Design, located in downtown San Diego’s East Village. Please check in at the front desk at 705 Park Ave (corner of G Str. and 12th Ave. /Park Blvd.). RSVP-guests will be directed to the upstairs gallery space.
RSVP/Additional Information: Please RSVP by Aug. 7 Francesca Vargiu oversees the Master Progam in Urban Vision and Architectural Design at Domus Academy in Milan. Her expertise involves applying Italian Design techniques to spaces that range from small interior spaces to wide-scale urban areas.
She is co-founder of KICK.OFFICE, a Milan-based studio she opened in 2009 with Mario Abruzzese. A graduate of Politecnico di Milano and Esquela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Madrid, Spain (ETSAM), Vargiu’s thesis research explored contemporary conditions of urban crisis and architectural applications to spaces of social invention and spatial transformation, with a focus on Deheishe Refugee Camp – West Bank.
In 2008, she took part in the international research project ‘Decolonizing Architecture’ and worked for its first exhibition ‘Design by Destruction: Oush Grab Military Base’ at Bozar, Bruxelles in November 2008. The work has been also displayed in various International Architectural Exhibitions, such as at Venice Biennal 2008, COAC Barcelona 2009, Istanbul Biennial 2009, Rotterdam Biennial 2009 and Edinburgh Art Festival 2010.

She was director of the Domus Academy Research Center from 2002 through 2009, where she oversaw the development and coordination of design innovation research projects for the European Union and for government and private groups in Italy. In 2011, she established the Master in Service and Experience Design program at Domus Academy.

A lot of brits go to art school in Italy

by _afact_

For a fully accredited art college you'll see a lot of them at:
Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze (Academy of Art and Design in Florence, Italy.
I think you'll find that courses are offered in English and Italian because of the huge number of English speaking students.
Accademia Di Belle Arti
Via Ricasoli, 66
50122 Firenze (FI), Italy
055 215449
BTW: That's not an atelier. It's a fine art school.
Michaelangelo's "David" was removed from the outdoors and placed inside the Accademia to protect it from the elements

Its always interesting to look back
