Normally I don't do forwards, but thought this one was too relevant and
interesting to avoid:

Interaction Design Institute Ivrea promotes the first SUMMER CAMP (Italy)

Interaction Design Institute Ivrea presents Summer Camp 2005, a chance to
learn about creativity, innovation and technology. We are looking for
students over 18 years old and professionals for an adventure in the world
of technology.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Summer Camp is an educational initiative aimed at the discovery of
interaction design: how to design new ways of dialogue between man and
technology.

Every day we relate to technological objects, for example the computer, the
cellular phone, the CD reader among others. Interaction Design wants to deal
with these interactions and has the aim of making them simple, pleasurable
and fun to use.Ten days of lessons, creative workshops, videos, photography,
electronics, prototyping, exhibitions and lots of group work, opening minds
to the future. The workshop will end with a final exhibition of all the
projects and the delivery of a diploma. Not just school, but sport and
amusement as well in the nearby Valley of Aosta.

The language of teaching at the Summer Camp is English. The main tool the
computer. For participants this is an excellent possibility to practice and
improve their English while in Italy. Candidates are over 18 years old
people. Essential qualities to enjoy the Summer Camp are curiosity, a desire
to explore the world of technology and future scenarios, and a good dose of
creativity.
The participants will work in groups, learn by doing, experience new design
techniques and talk in english.

First Summer Camp: 17 July- 28 July 2005 Second Summer Camp: 31 July – 11
August 2005
Admissions: The fees are € 2000. The deadline for admissions is 13 June
2005. 24 students only.

Interesting Ivrea would still be offering this, since the school has
reportedly stopped accepting applicants and is shutting down...

I've heard of this Master's program in Interaction Design at Ivrea but don't know anybody who went through it (though gee, two years living in Italy just sounds swell). I am wondering if a) is it any good b) what do students think of the program and experience and c) is it closing?

If somebody asks me about a master's program, I tell them to usually look at Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, or other assorted HCI/design programs, depending on their interest.

>c) is it closing?

Interaction-Ivrea is merging with the Domus Academy in Milan. There's no
mention of it on the IDII website but there's a press release on the Domus
site (http://tinyurl.com/8yh3r). The current first year students are
finishing their degree in Milan but starting in 2006 a new one year program
will created by merging the IDII curriculum with the Domus I-Design degree.
