Interior Design Course

NAD - Nuova Accademia del Design

The objective of the course in Interior Design is to provide the tools and knowledge necessary to enter the world of interior design, to understand the role of the profession of Interior Designer as well as the skills and responsibilities. This profession is not yet formally recognized, like many other categories that revolve around the world of art and creativity. As a result, it is increasingly required for its specific expertise and technical design ability.

The end customer wants to buy what he sees and the interior designer must interpret these needs and transform them into final works that most closely match the wishes of the client.


The course is open to all although it is preferable to have a minimum knowledge of using PC with Windows or Mac operating system.


Our Interior Design courses are structured so that the student can learn and practice the theory during the same lesson, applying the formula of 3 + 2, or three hours of theoretical training and two hours of practical realization. Students thus have the opportunity to structured attend courses according to the latest teaching methods of "learning by doing", which is a balanced mix between theoretical and practical training on the project,materials and decor.

Being an Interior Designer means to design the interior spaces, know how to organize the rooms according to the needs of the client, choose and arrange the furniture, choose the colors and the most appropriate materials.
