I attended the Visual Museum course. It was a very interesting, professional and exciting learning experience.
Visual Museum: I found the course pleasantly educational, a gateway to a rich and interesting world with well-prepared thematic theoretical lectures, lots of instructive video material and a unique loco experience with assisted exercises. Tutor Cristiani very helpful and precise.
Super professional lecturers, helpful and kind tutors. Really useful experience.
The Interior Design - Blended course was really very high-performing, all the professors were knowledgeable and each of them enriched the training with their very personal lessons. It gave a lot to the training of each participant, too bad it was a bit short. With this I thank all the professors and the organisers for giving us this enormous opportunity to grow our training experience.
The Blended Master in Interior Design at the Italian Design Institute was an enhancing experience. Through lectures and the support of industry experts, I discovered new perspectives in interior design, learning to combine colours in unexpected ways and to use a new modelling programme with great precision. Visits to local studios added value to my education, but what impressed me most was the in-depth exploration of the unconventional use of materials and colours, which fuelled my creativity significantly.The professionalism and friendliness of the staff and lecturers made me and us feel almost like we were in a familiar environment in which we could freely interact.
I took a beautiful course, the Master in Interior Design, which impressed me a lot, as did the competence of the professors who guided us. I am sorry that it ended so quickly. We were always looked after by a tutor who helped us with everything, and I also congratulate him on his patience with us. I thank the institute very much for this wonderful experience.

I attended the bridal and haute couture modelling course, a path of professional growth and more. The teachers were very professional, and a great stimulus to continue taking other specialisation courses to become the future 'fashion engineers'. I recommend attending this course or perhaps other Italian Design Institute courses to invest professionally in your future . A thank you ❤️ to Roberta Corimbo and the team Tania Sette and Martina Pantaleo who supported us until the end.
I attended the haute couture and bridal specialisation course, and Laura Diana was enlightening. I would have liked to ask her many more questions, too bad for time, perhaps too little
A very exclusive experience thanks to visits to well-known construction sites.
I always liked to design, but I never had the chance to do it; thanks to the group of teachers I found during the Master in Car Design, I was able to do it, they brought out my best!
I have just finished the classroom phase of the course in car design, it was a wonderful and absorbing training course. In the full immersion session I met my fellow students, very nice and helpful people with whom we immediately established a good relationship, including the teachers and tutor Claudia. For those who are passionate about design and cars, this is definitely a course not to be missed!
I completed the classroom phase of the Master in Car Design, which was a truly complete learning experience, thanks to the passion and expertise of the teachers, the patience of the tutor and, last but not least, the choice of location for the lessons: being inspired by the models on display at the Turin Car Museum is priceless!
I followed the Master in Car Design and found it very interesting. It gave me tools I could use every day and I find it helped complete my total education. I recommend it!
I enthusiastically concluded the course in Visual Museum.what can I say... an experience that was as educational as it was stimulating: wonderful lecturers and always helpful tutors! The course allowed me to consolidate my knowledge and develop very practical skills; the visit directly to the museum was wonderful.
A unique experience that went beyond my expectations! Very knowledgeable and always helpful lecturers and tutors. I would definitely recommend IDI!
Thanks to the internship in IDI's Wedding Flower Design course, I had the chance to end this experience on a high note! Although it was my first approach to the floral world, I managed to keep up with all the techniques and exercises during the classroom phase.I recommend it!

This MASTER is helping me a lot to fill in many gaps that I took for granted a long time ago. Especially I have learnt a lot with photography thanks to Amilcare Incalza and about publishing with Federica Caiazzo, who is young and fresh. She helped me understand how to launch myself into this world and how I could do it.
I attended the course in photography fashion editor and digital media, the course was divided into a phase of distance learning lessons with the class and with professionals especially on fashion journalism such as Mariella Milani, Valeria Oppenheimer and Federica Caiazzo, interactive and very educational lessons.Afterwards we spent four days in Milan with the class and with amilcare incalza who took us to his studio and let us experience one of his shoots up close.we also had the opportunity to organise a shoot on our own with the concession of some clothes and we were able to photograph a professional model. I'm still here as I write this review.It was exciting and unique.I had high expectations but I didn't think it would be so good.I'm going back to Rome with a bit of melancholy.But I thank my class, the professionals and our tutor Tania seven for this wonderful and unforgettable experience that I lived.I recommend everyone to pursue such experiences and I recommend the institute because it is very good. ❤️
The Master in Fashion Editor, Photography and Digital Media was super interesting and interactive. Shooting for a real shoot was inspiring and hopeful.
I did the master's course and it was really a positive experience, very serious and competent.
