“Una Scuola, un Lavoro. Percorsi di Eccellenza”: new announcement and new image

The Fondazione Cologni's internship training project is renewed, opening the new call for applications, and is presented with a completely new logo and image, reflecting the values and true essence of the project. The logo and coordinated image were created thanks to the valuable contribution of Gruppo Montenegro through the special "Human Spirit" award promoted by Fondazione Italia Patria della Bellezza. With a new form to reflect its contents, "Una Scuola, un Lavoro. Percorsi di Eccellenza" ("A School, a Job. Paths of Excellence") will also select for the 2022/23 edition, throughout Italy, twenty-five young aspiring artisans who will be able to take advantage of a free four-week Mini Master's program in Milan, and then access a six-month training internship in the workshop of an experienced Master or in a company with an artisan vocation. Schools will be able to send in applications from students by accessing, from Sept. 5 to Sept. 30, 2022. "One School, One Job" is made possible thanks to the invaluable contributions of patrons and supporters, and the fundamental support of main partners Fondazione Cariplo and Costa Crociere Foundation. Starhotels is supporting the project by hosting the young off-site students in its Milan hotels.
