Today, June 24th, 2021, our director Fernando Burgo celebrates his 80th birthday. 2021 is not only an important personal milestone but also a professional one: Istituto di Moda Burgo, founded in 1961, celebrates 60 years of activity.
The numerous awards received over the years, including the Ambrogino d’Oro in 2014 and the Stella al Merito Sociale in 2018, have not distracted the director from the goals he has had since the beginning. The training of the student always comes first: it is essential to provide an individual method that allows the best use of the abilities and ensure the development of the aspirations of each one, thanks to the support of the didactic texts published by the director himself.
Thanks to the collaboration with the Asilo Mariuccia Foundation and the Italian Red Cross, every year the Institute opens its doors to a number of students who can access the courses free of charge.
Messages of birthday wishes arrive not only from the staff and teachers in Milan, but from all over Italy and the world, from all the schools that every year welcome thousands of students wishing to study the Burgo method.
