Mayor Giuseppe Sala inaugurates the Raffles Milano campus


This is the big day, we made it. And we are inaugurating with the honour of having our Mayor cut the ribbon in front of our school. And snap! … In Milan everything is always possible, you just need to want it hard enough.


After months of construction work and meetings, writing study plans, recruiting teachers, installations and tests, promoting and organising spaces, the time finally came for our official take-off. On 8 September 2017, we finally opened the doors to our Campus in the presence of the Mayor of Milan. We were immensely proud to have succeeded in achieving what seemed like an impossible challenge only a few weeks earlier, and proud to prove that since we are in Milan all you need to do is roll up your sleeves and anything is possible.

The construction work was finished, the tables and classrooms were all tidy and ready: the press conference with College Director Pasquale Volpe, CEO Han Wei Chew, and Scientific Director Carlo Forcolini allowed us to tell the newspapers, TV channels, and the Mayor about our academic project. Giuseppe Sala encouraged us to get down to work.

Milan… where else? Here we are, ready to face the challenge in the great capital of our disciplines: Fashion Design, Product Design, and Visual Design, and the Master’s Courses.

Students will start arriving in November, and the teachers will complete the picture. Raffles Milano is ready and the adventure is about to start.
