Rome Day 2

Wednesday morning we got on a bus to head to Academia Italiana, a design school in Rome.

Academia Italiana specializes in design eduction in the fields of fashion, interior, jewelry, graphic and product design, among other fields.

We first heard from Jamal Taslaq, a Fashion Designer who graduated from the school over 20 years ago, and currently teaches there.

Jamal had an interesting story about how he came to be a fashion designer. He was born in Palestine and made his way to Rome to follow his dream. He was both inspiring and informative. After his presentation, we watched a recording of one of his shows, and toured the building.

The afternoon is free to all to explore Rome.
