Giuseppe Casillo

Chairman of TADS, Tarì Design School

Tads (Tarì Design School) has been the training school of the Il Tarì Jewellery Centre in Marcianise (Caserta) since 1991.

Campania’s jewellery district has two thousand years of history behind it and now counts over two thousand active businesses, with one of the highest employment rates in the region. The jewel in the crown is the Il Tarì Jewellery Centre, a consortium of businesses united by an ambitious project that includes production, sale, organisation and training.

Located right at the heart of this veritable citadel of excellence, the Tarì Design School is unique in its field, a genuine creative laboratory that, alongside theory, provides hours of practical training in the laboratory under the guidance of experienced designers and master craftsmen in the various techniques of goldsmithery and watch-making.

Another of the school's strengths is the constant exchange and interaction with businesses in the luxury goods and fashion sectors, allowing the courses to be constantly updated, organising key work experience placements and helping young people to enter the world of work. The school management also promotes numerous relations with other internationally respected training institutions.

Here, the culture of local tradition is united with the spirit of innovation and entrepreneurial culture. Thanks to its commitment to promoting and preserving Campania’s jewellery-making expertise and its extraordinary heritage, the School ensures the continuance of the tradition down the generations and offers young people from this socially challenged region important training and professional opportunities.
