The Rainbow Group has announced the acquisition of Poliarte, the Academy of Fine Arts and Design, the primary location in Italy for higher education, specialization, research and artistic design.
The excellence of its training offer and its educational paths is attested by the prizes and awards that have been awarded to it during its many years of activity.
The Rainbow Group has already been operating in the educational sector for years, in which it has therefore accumulated considerable experience, thanks to the activities of two companies within the Group.
The first is Rainbow Digital Entertainment Academy: the only Italian school, active for over ten years, to be inserted within an international production studio – Rainbow CGI – which compares students with professionals, orders and working methods related to the greatest productions of world entertainment, from Jurassic World to Star Wars. Thanks to the meeting with top-level teachers, all established experts in computer graphics, every year he trains about a hundred new professionals in the fields of animation, computer graphics, special effects, videogames, architecture and digital scenography. Over 95% of students find employment within a year of completing their studies, some within the Rainbow group itself and others in leading companies in the sector such as DoubleNegative, Framestore, ILM, Ubisoft and Rockstar Games.
The second is Liberi Reggiomonte International School, a nursery school in the province of Loreto that has reached 70 annual enrollments in five years of activity and imprints its educational method on creativity, bilingualism, music, artistic expression and psychomotricity.
The acquisition of Poliarte is, therefore, a new piece in the Rainbow Group’s investment strategy in the educational field: one of the largest independent groups of the Italian audiovisual system that is the protagonist of the entire supply chain – from production to distribution – as well as of artistic management. with the Moviement agency, part of the Group and which represents over one hundred artists including actors, screenwriters, directors and new promises.
