Accademia di Belle Arti e Design


Academy of design and fine arts

Ancona – Italy

Poliarte – Academy of Fine Arts and Design is a design academy based in Ancona, Italy.
Since 1972 it has created and organized post-graduate design courses. Its mission is to train professionals and innovative key personnel in the Ancona – Italy constantly evolving world of work.

In 2022 Poliarte joined the Rainbow Group, one of the largest independent producers of the European audiovisual system and protagonist of the whole Film Industry chain – from production, and distribution to artistic management. 

Rainbow created Winx, a phenomenon that led to the Fate series, then 44 Gatti, Pinocchio and Friends, A Classic Horror Story. The Colorado film production company and computer animation training institute, Rainbow Academy, are also part of the group. 

For over 50 years Poliarte has been a point of reference for design and applied arts, recognized at both Italian and international level. Among the first establishments to deal with education in the design sector, it has immediately become a source of inspiration and a benchmark, thanks to its teaching methodology that combines research, techniques, and innovation.

From 2016, Bachelor Degree courses have been granted formal academic status – 1st level Academic Diplomas – thanks to accreditation from the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research – MUR. The Educational Syllabus is divided across 5 departments:

// Film industry design
// Fashion Design
// Industrial Design
// Interior Design
// Visual Design

Additionally, Poliarte offers short courses focusing on other design areas. It’s a syllabus requiring compulsory attendance, striking the perfect balance between theory and practice. Theoretical, creative, de- sign and workshop activities are undertaken with the aim of teaching students how to collaborate, how to communicate and build relation- ships, as well as inter-disciplinary studies across all the various areas of design. The founding element of Poliarte’s philosophy is the following: to create a connection and continuous exchange with the world of industry, commerce and business. A relationship of mutual interest that guarantees continuous progress and high-level training, offering places for talented individuals in companies through research projects, intern- ships and job placements.

Design is seen as a strategic and integral discipline, at the service of business and society, regardless of the field and the final application. Thanks to their privileged contacts with the commercial world (more than 2000 companies/design studios), Poliarte has an employment rate of 98% within 2 years of completing a Bachelor Degree qualification.

České vysoké učení technické v Praze, Fakulta architektury

Czech Technical University in Prague

Prague – Czech Republic

The independent Faculty of Architecture of CTU was founded in the mid-1970s, but the teaching of this field has an almost three-hundred-year tradition in Prague. From the mid-18th century, architecture education was taught as a synthesis of art, science, and technology as part of the teaching of building construction at the Estates School of Engineering, founded in 1707. The faculty offers 3 study programs: Architecture and Urbanism, Landscape Architecture and Design.

The study is organized into three study levels (Bachelor, Master, and Doctoral) allowing students to individually plan and implement their study activities, including study abroad, professional practice, and further education. The Bachelor’s cycle lasts 3 years, followed by a 2-year Master’s cycle. The doctoral program is at least four years long. In the academic year 2020/21, 1009 students studied in the Bachelor cycle. 548 students, 61 of whom are foreign, studied in the follow-up Master’s program. There were 157 students in the doctoral program. The faculty has 23 professors, 48 associate professors, and 126 assistant professors.

At the Faculty of Architecture, a large part of the studies is traditionally conducted as teaching on specific projects developed in studios. The possibility of choosing a studio project leader for each semester ensures direct feedback between students and teachers. Teaching takes place in so-called “vertical” studios in which students from the second to the fifth year work side by side on different types of projects. The projects are led by leading architects, urban planners, and designers from the Czech Republic and abroad.

A dynamic, contemporary, and intercultural journey that explores the many different aspects of Italian design and manufacturing, which takes place in the Marche, a region that comprises all the particular features of the Italian peninsula in terms of production, fine art, history, architecture and landscape.

18 students in design and fine art from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia will attend 2-week online courses plus 2 weeks in person in Ancona to discover how the scientific and specific methodology of the Italian design process can respond to the current regional and societal needs of V4 students.

The great news of the second edition:

‘ – course will be also open to students coming from NON V4 EU and extra EU countries

‘- students can choose between two specific path:  Industrial/Interior design or Fashion/Accessories/Graphic design

Creating a more international scenario, giving V4 students the opportunity to get in touch with young designers coming from several EU and extra EU countries. Culture, languages, and different ways of project approaches will be combined to realize creative, unusual, original, fresh, and out of the box design visions, developing an international network of youth and inspired designers.

An innovative teaching methodology that combines research, innovation, hands-on projects and techniques to create real-life solutions that meet the contemporary needs of companies and end-users. Creative and design activities will be accompanied by additional work designed to improve collaboration, communication and relationship-building.

Students will learn to relate to each other and with teachers/ speakers. The methodology and best practices used by Italian designers will be shared initially through theoretical and then later through re- al-life examples, in order to subsequently be used and adapted to the students’ countries and local economies. 

Inquiry and experiential learning components have been combined in an atelier-like environment. Seminars and workshops become the framework in which students, alongside the professors, became the protagonists in design discourse, challenging the project’s boundaries and developing and applying a critical mindset. 

The Italian way of design can be integrated into the strategies and processes of local companies and artisans, translating this regional expression of the transformation of society and markets into contemporary and socially useful products and services.

History, tradition and proven methods are combined and improved with a strong innovative drive and fresh, out-of-the-box thinking.

Once back in their home countries, students will act as ambassadors and promoters of good design practices, introducing and influencing their network and future companies and colleagues as to how the Italian way of design can have a positive impact on their businesses.



Alzbeta Prosova, 1999 – Prague, Czech Republic

Hi, my name is Elisabeth and I’m a design student at the Czech Technical University (ČVUT) in Prague specializing in both product and graphic design. Currently, I’m excited to embark on a study program in Italy, where I’ll immerse myself in the rich design culture and gain new inspiration for my future projects.

Kristian Rudenko, 1996 Moscow - Russia

Born in 1996 in a little city known as Moscow but living in Czechia as a citizen most of my life. What describes me:
– 1. So, I’m a bit of a perfectionist, but I’ve learned to balance it by setting realistic expectations. I love diving into reworking something when I’m not satisfied with it. I’m all about nice things and finding that sweet spot right in the middle of the alignment chart.
– 2. Cars, interior design, and industrial design are my jam! All sorts of machines that can fabricate on their own tickle my curiosity, especially 3d printers and cncs. And contemporary art and tech? Count me in! It’s like a never-ending adventure. Same with cinema and tv. I’m fond of old classics and new metamodernist takes.
– 3. Speaking of accomplishments, I’ve got a degree under my belt, tied the knot with the love of my life, and even scored my own apartment and car. On top of that, some of my designs won competitions and are now being sold. It’s been a wild ride, but I’m always dreaming about the future and what’s yet to come.

Today, Clementoni is an important well-established player in the industry, proudly Italian and strongly focused on foreign markets whilst rooted in its place of origin, where it invents, designs, and develops all of the products in the catalogue. Clementoni is a trailblazer and standard-bearer of Italian excellence in Europe and all over the world, exporting to 83 different countries and boasting a turnover of 210 million euro (April 2021 – March 2022), 28 million games sold each year, 7 product lines, 1,100 new codes yearly, 600 employees, 9 sales subsidiaries in addition to the headquarters in Italy (France, Germany, Spain, UK, Portugal, Belgium, Holland, Turkey, and Poland) and 1 operational branch in Hong Kong.

MADE IN CLEMENTONI: production chain and know-how

Clementoni is a completely integrated Italian enterprise able to create a game in its entirety, from initial idea to end product. What are the constituent elements that underpin our know-how?

1. A manufacturing tradition that goes back 60 years and is based on Mario Clementoni’s down-to-earth philosophy that he used to sum up with the words: “if you don’t know how to make something, you can’t buy it either”. Since that time back in 1963, Clementoni has never looked back.

2. The integrated production chain: all the games and toys are designed, developed and industrialised in Italy with a R&D team made up of over 60 toy practitioners.

3. Clementoni’s toy practitioners are one big team of youngsters with an approximate average age of thirty. 50% are women and they have university degrees in a wide range of subjects, ranging from educational studies, psychology, design to graphics, etc. and they are able to follow the whole process from A to Z, meaning concept development to design and right up to the graphics stage.

4. Support for the local area: the company has always been acutely aware of the importance of a short production chain and in 2012 it started to bring back some of its outsourced China production to Italy in a move to favour local businesses and re-assume direct control of the process.

5. In 2022, 40% of the company’s suppliers come from the Marches region.

6. Familiarity with consumer needs through ongoing conversations not only with families and children, but also with schools (over 100 across Europe) and teachers. A dense network made up of enduring relationships based on mutual trust.

7. Receptiveness to innovation: our conversation with the outside world is fuelled by constant contact with startups, universities and research centres which gives us insight into new trends and drives our product development.

CLEMENTONI believes in the social value of play

People and their welfare have always been a central part of Clementoni’s work and projects and the company has striven tirelessly to create games accessible to everyone, regardless of age or personal circumstances. Accessible in the sense of affordable, accessible in the sense of easily available and accessible in the sense of simple to use.

… and in 2023

28 million games sold

4% of consolidated turnover invested in R&D Ranked 11th on the European toy market (internal reclassification of NPD data)

83 countries reached worldwide

90% of our production activities take place in Recanati, Italy

A harmonious blend of these factors runs through the DNA of the TOD’S Group and its brands, each with its own identity: Tod’s, Roger Vivier, Hogan and Fay. This overall vision draws strength from the brands’ synergy in high-end design; it has enabled the Group to emerge as a leader in the footwear, leather goods and clothing sectors with a significant presence in all the global markets.

At the turn of the 20th century, Filippo Della Valle, Diego’s grandfather, set up a small shoemaking workshop, pursuing the ancient profession with care and dedication. Driven by his passion for the work, Filippo refined his shoemaking business over time, elevating it to a level of excellence and passing his skills down to his children. These authentic codes of style and quality have since become essential assets for the Group and still characterise its DNA today.

Over the years, the TOD’S Group has expanded its production by launching and acquiring prestigious brands. But it has always stayed true to its original set of principles: unique, uncompromising quality. Under the guidance of Diego and Andrea Della Valle, this clear vision has enabled the Group to become a benchmark in the international luxury market.

By skilfully combining craftwork traditions with innovation, the TOD’S Group has become a key player in the production and distribution of luxury footwear, leather goods, clothing and accessories, a global ambassador for Italy’s deeply rooted manufacturing traditions, a symbol of the Italian lifestyle and of unparalleled quality.
