“Domus Academy was my last day of school and my first day of work.

I learned a professional method to start confronting myself with the real world.
All the teachers I met gave me a part of them, I treasured it!
They helped me to become what I am today, successfully completing my creative path.

After almost 30 years of work, what I have learned in Domus Academy is always with me, constantly.”
