In 1986, Polimoda was founded as Politecnico Internazionale della Moda in an agreement between two international centres of fashion, and two trailblazers of the industry. The first classes took place at Villa Strozzi in central Florence that year, and the Institute has only grown in strength and influence since then.

Polimoda’s Library, Centro di Documentazione Matteo Lanzoni, houses the most significant collection of publications on the international fashion industry in Italy. This space serves as a primary source of information for inspiration to students, researchers and professionals.
Polimoda’s students thrive across three campuses in Florence: the historic Villa Favard, the contemporary Design Lab and the new campus inside Manifattura Tabacchi. Whether centuries old or ultra-modern, these spaces are hubs of activity, creativity and new ideas that are changing the future of fashion as we know it.
