Mini Master “Una Scuola, un Lavoro” 2023: a november in the name of education

Underway is the Mini Master 2023 of “Una Scuola, un Lavoro. Percorsi di Eccellenza” ("One School, One Job. Paths of Excellence") featuring 25 talented youngsters from all over Italy, gathered in Milan to attend ad hoc classes in Milan's most prestigious schools and universities during the entire month of November. Once again Starhotels, hospitality partner of the Project, generously offered its spaces, giving the young masters of the future, as part of the patronage initiative "The Great Beauty. The Dream Factory," an Italian-style hospitality experience that made their Milan stay unforgettable in the facilities of Starhotels Ritz, Starhotels Tourist and Starhotels Business Palace. The Mini Master, organized by Formaper, Iulm University, SDA Bocconi, Corsi Arte and Politecnico di Milano, was also made possible thanks to the support of BPER: Bank. We would like to thank SDA Bocconi for the course delivered as part of "SDA Bocconi for Growth," IndirizzoAmbiente for the course on occupational health and safety, Loconte&Partners for the lecture on intellectual property protection, and Accademia Teatro alla Scala for the hospitality. In addition to the classroom lessons - on the history of applied and decorative arts, digital communication, microenterprise management, personal branding and self-entrepreneurship - the students will conclude this wonderful experience by visiting during the first week of December some of the city's artisan excellences, including the Ex Ansaldo laboratories of Teatro alla Scala and the Open Care restoration laboratories - Servizi per l'Arte.
