Talents: a talk with Barbara Franchin, Mariasole Pastori and Sara Sozzani Maino



Apr 13, 2024


13.00 - 14:00



The theme of talents is rather controversial, schools are attractors of talent but they are also places that produce skills, places where students come to understand their own strengths and weaknesses in order to overcome them and outline their own professional path.

The system of international competitions and the platforms of research and dissemination are becoming a great opportunity for new designers. What are the selection criteria? What are talent scouts and big brands looking for today? What will they be looking for in the future?

Guests will be asked these questions by two alumni who will be given the opportunity to interact on these issues.
