“Domus Academy: We expected personalities, prominent, but we didn´t expect anything from the school. It was the first year. A school-not-school, they told us. I don´t think I understood what they meant. We were guinea pigs in an experiment that taught us how to.... experiment and experiment again. We learnt how to be curious, how to discover new ways to do design, to reinvent everyday our own craft. Fortunate, we continued to reinvent ourselves for thirty years, and in the end maybe we understood what they meant. Thank you prominent personalities, and thank you school-not-school for having changed our lives.”
