Fratelli Rossetti will unveil its plans for a special workshop at the Istituto Marangoni on March 11.

The Italian footwear company has partnered with the school, which has four campuses in Milan, Paris, London and Shanghai, to bring a set of lectures to the master’s students in fashion accessories and luxury goods.

CEO Dario Rossetti said the new initiative “is a fantastic opportunity to identify and mentor new talent.”

Luca Rossetti, co-CEO, will conduct the lectures. And in May, the most promising student projects could be chosen for inclusion in future Fratelli Rossetti collections.

“We want the students to be as creative as possible, using our rich heritage in innovative ways,” said Luca Rossetti. “I hope my lectures will inspire them.”

The project is the start of an ongoing relationship between the footwear firm and Istituto Marangoni, which counts among its alumni such fashion luminaries as Domenico Dolce and Franco Moschino.
