The origin of the Slow movement is Rome, Italy. Specifically in the Plaza de España, when in 1986 a Mc Donalds was opened. The journalist Carlo Petrini considered that they were trespassing the limits and advanced the dangers that hung over the alimentary habits of the Europeans. This is how the well-known Slow Food movement would emerge.

There, they offer studies related to interior design and the result (taking into account the prestige of the two entities) is remarkable: students with great training on what they are passionate about.

Yesterday, Saturday May 26, we had the great opportunity to be before the students of the Diploma of Advanced Interior Design to give a talk at Interior School and talk about our experience, work and perception of the sector.
