ASP G. MAZZINI has been present in the territory of Cinisello Balsamo since the first postwar period as a design school; it was then formally constituted as ASSOCIATION in 1974, acquiring legal personality by the Regional Committee Resolution on 7th February 1990.
It was in 1912 when the first core was founded: a school of professional design, “under the high patronage of the municipality”, but it was not before the second postwar period that a better defined organization took shape, thanks to a stronger support of the municipal administration and of local philanthropic entrepreneurs.
In 1974, G. Mazzini Vocational Schools Association (ASP G. Mazzini) was established, with the purpose of offering first education, professional updating, specialization and professional requalification, the development of relationships with public and private Entities, in order to promote initiatives for youth and adult education and career counseling, according to the demand of the territory and the firms.
In 1988, ASP G. Mazzini was honored with the special Spiga d’Oro award by the Municipality of Cinisello Balsamo, with the mention of Meritorious Institute for the cultural and civil development of the city.
