European Institute of Design (IED)
European Institute of Design (IED) was established in Milan in 1966 by its current President, Mr. Francesco Morelli. IED offers actual training, based on the theory and practice of design culture. IED attracts young people who want to embark on careers in Fashion, Design, Visual Arts or Communications. This design school was founded to teach theory and practice with passion and to make the dreams come true, by designing the products and the shapes of the future.
The SIO (Information and Orientation Service) provides constant assistance and support to all students and everyone else who needs information about the IED’s courses and activities. By contacting the SIO office, future students and others interested in IED’s training programmes will receive guidance to help them make their choice, as well as detailed information about how the study curricula are organised, about their contents and aims.
Milan is home of Made in Italy, ranging from the decorative arts and industrial products to jewellery as well as food design. Milan is also home of the creative economy that generates new wealth and intellectual property: copyright, patents, brand names, registered designs. And finally Milan is the city of the graphic designers, the architects and the industrial designers, but also the stylists and the publishers who have written the history of Italian culture.
