NABA is an Academy of Arts and Design which was
formed in 1980 by a group of artists, among whom
Guido Ballo, Gianni Colombo, Lucio Del Pezzo, Emilio
Isgrò, Tito Varisco, Luigi Veronesi, who
aimed at challenging the rigid academic tradition
by introducing new visions and languages closer
to contemporary artistic practice and the creative
professions. NABA education integrates the more
traditional disciplines of visual representation
with the new digital technologies and the critical-project
culture of Italian Design. The foundation of NABA
educational philosophy lies in applying art to
a project, in synthesizing creative and practical
abilities and in reaching a perfect balance between
critical-methodological and technical-manual knowledge.
NABA training programs are based on a cross-disciplinary
method aimed at developing artistic-professional
skills and profiles in the fields of art, design,
fashion, media and graphic design. This approach
derives from continuous experimentation, a strong
vocation for research, a close relationship with
the artistic and productive environment and a focus
on the ethical dimension of education.
