He actively collaborates in the training of future opticians by promoting activities in synergy with schools and the Eyewear Museum. And this year, just on the occasion of the 40th anniversary, the company decided to set up a prize in the name of Giovanni Sommavilla, owner and founder of Som Eyewear, now led by the second generation: his sons Andrea and Francesca. The company wanted to select one of the young students of the ITS Design course and eyewear technique, promoted by Certottica, Luca Dal Bò, who has distinguished himself as the most deserving student of the Postgraduate Diploma of ITS Design and Technique of the Eyewear and obtained its title in 2018. ITS Design and Technique of the Eyewear provides 2,000 hours of training to acquire the basic, transversal skills and the fundamental methodological approach to orientate oneself to the profession of the “Product Manager junior of eyewear”, that means the profile that manages a frame or an eyewear collection, coordinating all phases, from design to sale.
