Our History


For more than 20 years, the Istituto Italiano Design is among the best university-level institutions providing training in the field of design, in all its forms.

RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY, AND INNOVATION: these are our strengths for a highly qualifying didactic proposal!

Theory and practice work in synergy by combining theoretical lessons with exercises, workshops, and laboratories, up to participation in competitions and
sector initiatives.


Let’s step back and review the history of the Istituto Italiano Design.

The idea of founding the school originated in the 1990s from a passion for Design.
The Historic Center of Perugia has always hosted our Institute:

The first IID was located on Via Oberdan for only five years on a pulsating pedestrian street in the heart of Perugia.

IID later transferred to Via Canapina for a little over 11 years, always adjacent to the Historic Center.

Finally, for the last five years, we have returned to the heart of Perugia on Via Alessi, in the prestigious Palazzo Ranieri di Sorbello.
