Italia Innovation Experience

As a participant of an Italia Innovation program, you enter a network of forward-thinking students, thought-leaders, and business veterans passionate about participating in the future of Italian industries. Italia Innovation is an environment that fosters entrepreneurship and stimulates creativity because we believe that when young talents feel empowered they commit to achieving big goals. Throughout the year we bring groups of international students for experiential educational programs that take an in-depth look at Italy's value creation with thought leaders who have shaped successful academic or business practices to inspire entrepreneurial thinking.

Program Building Blocks


To build an in-depth understanding of the topic at stake for the participants, today’s leading design, academic and business minds come to share their expertise.


To get an up-close look at Italian manufacturing, students visit partner companies to see their production models then have conversations with company managers and entrepreneurs.


To incite project work, design strategists lead participants through workshops that engage their creative thinking.

Italy as a Campus

With its rich cultural and entrepreneurial history, Italy is the place where the young can come to design the future of human-centered industries. Participants visit various cities and company headquarters across the country to get a far-reaching understanding of the country’s value creation.
