The project focused on the planning of services and products for the Museum of Textiles and Industry of Busto Arsizio. The project is based on the cooperation between Italian and European Schools, whose students have been involved in transnational mobility experiences. The project is divided in three parts: (a) the historical and economic analysis of the area and of a case of business study; (b) the planning of an area aimed at promoting the province and the sale of souvenirs, gadgets and publications and (c) the design of a gadget to be sold at the Museum, representing the material exhibited. The attention to the textile and tourism sectors as well as in general to the economic field made it possible to look for local solutions to global problems in a critical moment for the economic history of Lombardy, Italy and Europe, trying to provide the young with tools able to support them in acting as protagonists in the world around them. Communicative, language and social competences have been developed in different ways (e.g. through the use of virtual classrooms, social networks, wiki spaces) to enable students to become open-minded and flexible at work.
