Combining traditional quality standards with innovative teaching, Accademia del Lusso offers a diverse community of staff and students from around the globe, committed to providing you with the best possible support and opportunities to make your experience at Accademia del Lusso truly outstanding.
The main site of Accademia del Lusso is in Milan, on Via Montenapoleone, no. 5, an exclusive street at the heart of Milan’s fashion district, meaning students are surrounded by influences and are immersed in a dynamic, trend-setting environment that enhances learning and serves as a never-ending stimulus for creativity and originality. The students will pursue several classes in the main campus located on the main shopping district. Considered to be the most exclusive and the most sophisticated fashion district in Milan and Europe, the district is home to all the top names in fashion and design. The beautiful district traces the old city walls built by Roman Emperor Maximian. Post World War II, Via Monte Napoleone transformed into Milan and Italy’s most sought-after fashion destination. The district boasts of the crème-de-la-crème luxury fashion and design brands such as Baccarat, Balenciaga, Versace, Valentino, Gucci, Missoni, Ferragamo, Hermès and many others.
At roughly 10 mins walking distance from Via Monte Napoleone is the Duomo. Italian for a Cathedral, the Duomo is located in the center of the city and is considered to be the best landmark in Milan. The cathedral took more than 600 years to finish and is one of the largest cathedrals in Italy and Europe. Inside the church, various stained glasses reflect in many colors by lights and paintings and sculptures depicting the history of Christianity. One can even purchase tickets to go to the rooftop for a view of the entire city of Milan besides the sculptures of Gothic architecture. This massive Gothic Cathedral is considered to be the best example of the Gothic architecture in Italy and its original design has a unique beauty that one must experience when in Milan.
The street is also within walking distance from Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, Italy’s oldest active shopping mall. The mall has been in existence since the Roman era and is a major landmark of Milan. Designed and built in the 1860s, the Mall is at the center of the city and is a marvel in its own. The arcade primarily contains luxury retailers selling haute couture, jewelry, books, and paintings, as well as restaurants, cafés, bars, and a hotel, the Town House Galleria. The Galleria is famous for being home to some of the oldest shops and restaurants in Milan, such as Biffi Caffè which was founded in 1867 by Paolo Biffi, who was the pastry chef to the monarch, the world-famous Savini restaurant, and the Art Nouveau classic Camparino.
Via Monte Napoleone itself, in substance, is synonymous with richness, good taste, and elegance. It is the principal door of all the great stylists. The street is lined with shop windows that showcase the best from the luxury world. Via Monte Napoleone is used as a backdrop for various fashion shows and other events on a regular basis. Walking along Via Monte Napoleone means being able to live a double experience: an experience based on a craftsmanship tradition, and the other based on luxury fashion. High street shoppers are often found browsing through Italian and international design outlets, jewelers, furriers, and antique dealers. Some of the finest examples of visual merchandising and store design are to be seen here. The street also is known for one of Italy’s oldest pasticceria i.e. Caffè Cova. Celebrated for its product excellence, impeccable service, and fascinating interiors, Caffè Cova is an institution that exalts tailored craftsmanship and creativity.
Students who sign up for the course will get to first-hand experience what true luxury means. One gets the taste of the high life: world-famous Milanese tiramisu, exquisite architectural facades and porticoes, fast cars and high fashion. On a good day, you may even spot the odd celebrity and famous designers walking by. Whether you marvel at Marni’s courtyard, search for sparkling stones in Sabbadini or pick up this season’s must-haves in Prada, there is something for everyone. Via Monte Napoleone is the reason why millions of tourists from across the world throng to the location which in turn produces almost 12% of Milan’s GDP.
Via Monte Napoleon not only offers students a view into the high street customer’s perspective but also what it means to be employed in the industry and how professionals hone their craft to become the best in the industry.
A short distance from Milan is the campus hostel where students will be living. The prestigious and imposing structure hosting it, harmoniously located in the green of the surrounding park, dates back to the beginning of the ’70s when IBM commissioned the architect Bruno Morassutti to build a business training center interpreting the technological vocation of the multinational company. Today the setting and highly modern and functional architectural design, combined with the quality of the services, make Milano International Campus the ideal place to study, follow courses, seminars, and conferences. With 270 rooms, the restaurant, classrooms, library and common areas, the Campus is equipped to make the best use of the most advanced learning and working tools.
