Interview with leading lights in the world of fashion and communication: the testimonies of entrepreneurs, journalists and sector experts on Istituto Modartech.
Istituto Modartech Scientific Director, Camera della Moda Italiana Director, Maison Gattinoni Chairman
Istituto Modartech is an extraordinary school, teaching an ancient art in the most modern of ways. An injection of energy and contemporaneity: I think Modartech is truly a leading school in this sense.
Fondazione Piaggio Chairman
The Piaggio Museum is the center of creativity and innovation, so in Modartech we have found a very important “bank”. This school, in addition to promoting new professions in the world of style and design, manages to give young people the creativity that we also need. We are truly happy to collaborate with Modartech. The boys manage to find work with a very high percentage only a few months after the completion of the courses. They deserve it because I see how hard they work and dedicate themselves to these professions.

Modartech is the favorable environment for translating one’s inclinations into tangible results and it is precisely here that the figure of the teacher, mentor, talent scout is inserted, who, in precise circumstances, is able to intuit the inclinations and predisposition of an individual to enhance them and bring them to fruition. Learning, study, experience: these are the keys to become artistically unpredictable.

Modartech, thanks to the experiences it offers to its students, is an accelerator for the entry of talents into the company. It is a current reality and in step with the times that offers a real collaboration between academia and the world of companies, which makes the impact for those entering the world of work less traumatic.
I have always believed that the training and development of human resources represents a fundamental aspect for business growth and development.

I must say that the preparation and ability found in young students is very high.

Journalist expert of culture, fashion, habit e society
I met Modartech for the first time in an afternoon at the Piaggio Museum and what immediately struck me was the atmosphere of enthusiasm and freedom that the boys and girls showed. A freedom made up of new ideas and a desire to implement them, thanks to those who get young students used to reasoning in terms of concreteness. In an increasingly demanding world, especially in the field of fashion and design, with the growth of the global market and the increase in competition, the task of specialized institutes such as Modartech is increasingly important, especially in the area where it is located. to operate, which boasts a beautiful tradition of craftsmanship and attachment to the craftsmanship of Made in Italy.
Journalist, writer and top expert in training, fashion and desig
Modartech is an institution that you don’t expect: smaller towns often hide unexplored but precious treasures. It doesn’t have the pretentious name of lots of other elite schools, but it has a history and serious attitude rarely seen in other institutes, which often live off their image and are more like companies than educational institutions. Modartech is fashion – real, true, tailored fashion – created with the soul and the hands, aided by technology but without ever forgetting the unique value of creativity. Modartech is close to its young students. It continues to follow them even after they have finished, guaranteeing job prospects and human relations that I have never come across in my numerous experiences in the most important schools in Italy.
Founder & CEO Warda
I was struck by how Istituto Modartech manages to organize the meeting between school and business, which is fundamental for companies and students. Events such as conferences, meetings and workshops are very important.

For the Biorobotics institute, partnerships such as the one started with Modartech are very important. Cross fertilization allows the birth of radical innovation ideas with applications in all fields of everyday life and gives ideas for creativity that is at the basis of both the world of art and that of innovation.
MBVision Creative Director and Administrator
I have been working with Modartech for fifteen years. Center of excellence in professional training, it has built and strengthened its recognition in the fashion sector over time by bringing together experts, teachers and professionals. But Istituto Modartech is also a precursor in other highly specialized areas: those of communication and applied multimedia, becoming a reference point in the training sector.
Fondazione Piaggio Operations Coordination Manager
The collaboration between the Fondazione Piaggio and Modartech began many years ago and is now consolidated. At first the Piaggio Museum was the theater, fascinating and magical, of the beautiful end-of-course fashion shows by Modartech. For some years, the collaboration has intensified and we have started to work closely on educational projects for schools. The result was an engaging work, highly appreciated by young people. Last shared experience was the realization of an important conference dedicated to schools entitled “The Professions of Fashion”, on the occasion of the exhibition Gattinoni, the Vespa and the TV. Made in Italy is in fashion. A great success!
