Domus Academy: Great School Of Design

The foundation of any great civilization is to have great schools keeping its heritage alive.

Domus Academy was founded on the premise that while Italian design spread across the world it was losing its essence at home. It was the first post-graduate school of design in the world.

From the website it explains its founding:

"In 1983, Maria Grazia Mazzocchi saw this as a tremendous opportunity to fill the design education void. So, along with Pierre Restany (one of the most important art critics of the 20th century), Alessandro Mendini, Valerio Castelli, Alessandro Guerriero and Andrea Branzi she founded Domus Academy.
 

From the very beginning, Domus Academy was designed to be a unique institution. The founders envisioned a school where different cultures and experiences would meet and exchange, and where education and research would be closely integrated. They planned a center that would promote an open environment conducive to reflection and criticism, and that would bring together students and companies to pursue real-world projects on the most important aspects of contemporary life."
