Marilena Calbini teaches on the prestigious 72-Day International Floral Design Course, currently the only professional course that allows students to obtain an International Diploma based on cross training that goes beyond the boundaries of classic and traditional courses for florists. Distinguished Masters of Floral Art, famous Floral Designers and expert Consultants from all over the world have followed this course. The course is designed by the Maestro of Maestros PETER HESS, who has been continuously evolving its content for over 30 years.
The program is divided into 18 modules of four days each, and includes two intermediate examination tests, before conferring the International Floral Designer Diploma on the 72nd day.
Students following the course reap the benefits of having at least five International Masters of Floral Art as teachers.
At least four of the 18 modules are held in the School’s international subsidiary Departments. Students can choose between Basel, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Singapore, Milazzo, Beijing, Taipei, Lyon and Minsk. This gives students the opportunity to benefit from an international experience, work with other teachers, embrace different cultures, environments, and colours, explore new techniques and get to know new people: the course encourages open mindedness.
