On these questions, YAC, with the support of RIAM, lays the foundations for University Island inviting all the designers to feel completely fascinated by the magnificence of one of the most breathtaking places of the Venetian Lagoon and to plan a new future composed by activities, good attendance and the vitality of thousands of students who every year choose Venice as an esteemed location for their studies.
