An inspirational story every Monday at IED

More Than Monday – Inspirational stories at IED – Istituto Europeo di Design

At Istituto Europeo di Design, Monday is a day to find inspiration. More Than Monday is a program of live stream conferences and a virtual place where it is possible to share insights, present visions and interpret the past and future of the design world.

“We have decided to give ourselves a moment to listen to people with great experience and vision, who have decided to tell us something about their lives – says Fabrizia Capriati, Head of Communication at IED Italia. More than Monday is neither a themed conference nor a lecture, it is a day to find inspiration, a late Monday afternoon we would like to become a virtual place where to share reflections, visions, interpretations of the world of design and innovation for our students and the entire global community of the Institute.”
