Federico Luci

Founder Tag Communication

I approached the corporate and managerial world, with a strong interest in marketing, a real passion, inspired by a sense of admiration towards this world. Thus began my research and analysis of those that are the different educational institutions, research that led me to choose Istituto Modartech, a choice that I would absolutely and constantly redo.

Nicola Ceccanti

Art Director Ldb Advertising

I have always been intrigued by the communication mechanisms, by the elements that make up the launch of a very precise message, and by the relationships between them and the success or failure of a project. I approached Modartech with lots of good ideas, but completely lacking the tools I needed to put them into practice. The course of the Institute allowed me to enter the world of communication and advertising, giving me what I need to seriously undertake a career that, if undertaken with commitment, can give great satisfaction.

Francesca Vitrano

Graphic Designer E-Commerce Liu Jo

The desire to do design activities and practices beyond theory led me to choose Modartech. The lessons are held by professionists who teach their craft with passion and transmit the desire to learn different things every day. This allowed me to “throw myself” into new experiences to pursue my passion.
