“Azioni in trama”, where arts meet fashion

“We are happy to collaborate with this prestigious Institute. We think that the relationship between students and company is very important. Marzotto is a unique reality, whose history is made of untiring passion for excellence, great knowledge and constant research of innovative products. Through the project “AZIONI IN TRAMA”, IUAD students will be able to discuss this: use their skills to obtain from our fabrics creations that speak of tailoring with a look at innovation. A message that I want to leave to the young talents of the future is that training, curiosity and hard work have to be combined to become great professionals.”

Giorgio Todesco, CEO of Marzotto Wool Manufacturing.

Azioni in Trama is the project born from the connection between Marzotto and IUAD Accademia della Moda , which led to the realization of a beautiful exhibition in Naples in the magical setting of Castel dell’Ovo.

The students explored the concept of “art as action and reaction”, re-interpreting the traditional Marzotto Fabrics. During the project, there were a series of workshops that deepened the characteristics of wool and the production process of Marzotto fabrics.

“The strength of our school lies precisely in the fact that we, starting from the Neapolitan tradition, teach all the secrets of craftsmanship by practising it in a modern and experimental key through design, art, research, design, communication”.

“For us, it is a huge privilege to start this partnership with Marzotto. Our young students have a very important role because they will be the future workers of some leading sectors of the Italian economy as well as the identity of national culture: fashion, design and interior architecture. Joining such a prestigious company was a completely natural choice for us”.

Michele Lettieri, President of IUAD.
