About NABA:

Photo of Art & Design School in MilanNABA was formed in 1980 by a group of internationally renowned artists with an innovative spirit geared towards experimental manual skills and design. We are an international institution, which integrates students of 45 different nationalities in its educational programs and promotes intensive educational exchanges with Art and Design universities in USA, Europe, Asia and Latin America. NABA collaborates with prestigious institutions such as Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, Philadelphia University, Rhode Island School of Design and Pratt Institute.

Our Philosophy:
NABA’s education integrates the traditional disciplines of visual representation, the contemporary digital practices as well as the critical project culture of Italian design. NABA’s training philosophy is based on the project-applied Art, synthesis of creative sensitivity, critical-methodological knowledge and technical-manual know-how. NABA’s programs are characterised by an interdisciplinary methodology aimed at the development of artistic-professional competencies and profiles in the fields of Art, Design, Fashion Design, Graphic, Media and Theatre Design.
