"IMT Lucca combines the best facets of the Italian academic tradition, the Italian cultural context, and an international research hub. As an American lawyer with a proposed PhD project on fashion, law, and heritage in Italy I was searching for an academic community that embraced interdisciplinarity and comparative dialogue while providing new forms of analysis, knowledge, and institutional support. At IMT I found treasured colleagues, generous professors, and a network of contacts that still shape my research."
