When we packed up everything, collected the keys and moved into our new home: that’s when we understood that ITS Arcademy was coming to life. Years and years of work, analysis, research and study… an idea sowed twenty years ago was now germinating and taking shape. And it was branching out into something greater than we ever imagined.
We felt it was the beginning of a story that deserved to be told in an intimate, personal way. Capturing all of those backstage situations and day-to-day actions that are going to lead us to the opening of ITS Arcademy in 2021. And digging into those memories that represent the actual foundations of our future. Leaving out nothing.
The ITS Arcademy Diary launches today and it is an entirely new digital platform to let you step inside. Just as if you were flipping through the pages of a journal revealing all the details and aspects of a project, you will be able to experience the road that is leading us to the opening in 2021 as if you were with us in the office, day after day. It will be full of scribbles and side notes written directly by Barbara.
Throughout the coming months we will share with you all of the pieces of the puzzle until the picture is complete and the doors of ITS Arcademy open up. And they will be opening up for you to come in and join us like never before.
Together, we will share the excitement of a project we have been fighting for literally since we began ITS.
