Leather by LOU posted a topic in Leatherwork ConversationCurious if anyone here is familiar with this school I have been reading about. Below is a link to the program. It is based in Florence, Italy and has several year long programs in shoe making and bag making. 2 of which really appeal to me. While tuition is quite steep and most likely not the wisest investment in time and money I am considering it in regards to a big life change and find more value in the location than necessarily what I will take away. Either way I have been told by admissions that my prior experience and works would make me eligible for the master course which eliminates another 1 year prerequisite. Part of the reason I would like to study in Italy is because this program includes tours of tanneries, and manufacturing plants. Along with a "corporate research" program that allows the student to work with a major bag manufacturer to develop a design for production. You can read much more information at the link below. The program seems quite in depth and short of the cost seems like something i want every part of. Thanks in advance for any information regarding this school. I am also interested in other foreign options of leather school regarding complex construction of either apparel or bags and shoes. http://www.accademiariaci.info/academics/leather-working/
