ESE Rome welcomes the Red Cross delegation

It is estimated that over 5 million people were displaced from their home in Northern Iraq due to the ISIS invasion. Today, some of those people are making a comeback to find they need to start all over again, their homes are destroyed, their businesses no longer there. In 2018, 807 cash grants were given out to people to rebuild their lives. A great number of them were issued by the International Committee of the Red Cross…

But it takes more than just money. The International Committee of the Red Cross manages projects on a large scale and in order for each project to be successful, a number of professionals have to apply their knowledge and expertise to the managing of the contracts, projects, deliveries, public tenders and much more. read more

VIDEO: In search of a new order?

“I have been there….
Here is a thought just for this memorable occasion. Memorable happens often in unanticipated yet long lasting ways. This is what can be said of Professor Glosserman and Elio D’Anna’s intervention of last year’s on the New World order. Some of Glosserman’s ideas about North Korea’s nuclear arms failed negotiation with Trump’s administration were then an admonishment of what the US administration should avoid. Nothing more “useless than the good advice you did not take” the popular song states… On the other hand, D’Anna’s speech about the importance of the inner self as a key to change those around you is always compelling. In the end, apparently contradicting ideas voiced in a complex and dynamic world like those expressed then, may remain our only certainty. Being real may be the name of the game. Higher Education should convey not only how our world should be but also how the world really is”.

Generation Paisley: ESE Milan at Etro’s exhibition for its 50th birthday

Originally, there was an ancient land, Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization, and a date palm bud, the ‘buta’, a symbol of fertility and long life. The ‘buta’ design began to be reproduced in Asia, particularly on Kashmir shawls and other fabrics, until it reached England between the 18th and 19th centuries, where it was renamed ‘Paisley’. Fifty years ago, the history of the Milan-based fashion house Etro blossomed from the Paisley: the portentous shoot turned into Etro’s own emblem. ‘Generation Paisley’ is the title of the marvellous exhibition that is being held at the Museum of Cultures in Milan (Mudec, 23 September – 14 October 2018) to celebrate Etro’s first half century of life. The exhibition is a journey through the multiple influences of the brand, to discover the evocative places and meetings that have inspired its masterpieces. We start from the large tree of the first room, a metaphor for the collection of shoots from which Etro draws the lifeblood of its creativity, and we get to the ramifications that extend from this symbolic tree into the next five rooms. The visitor here finds fifty enchanting outfits, both female and male, as well as a variety of accessories and perfumes. read more

History and culture in the temple of ‘King Giorgio’: the ESE students visit Armani Silos

“I chose to call it Silos because the grains, material for living, were stored there, and because, just like food, dressing also serves to live”. With these words, a few years ago Giorgio Armani had explained the reasons behind the name of the space he inaugurated in Milan in 2015 and obtained from the former Nestlé cereal depot. An impressive and sober building whose original architectural structure has been maintained, the Silos shows remarkable points of contact with the Armani style, for which essentiality has always rhymed with elegance. Inside, in a large space spread over four levels, 600 dresses and 200 accessories belonging to different collections of the brand, from 1980 to today, are exhibited. The succession of masterpieces is organized thematically: from daywear to evening dresses, from the most classic colours (blacks, grays and whites) to the most exotic ones for which the brand is less known, there is everything you can expected from a place celebrating the Milanese fashion house par excellance. Nowhere else is it possible to grasp with the same immediacy Armani’s expressive character. In this, obviously, lies the enormous educational value of an excursion to such a fascinating place. read more
