Where we are

Rome is called ‘eternal’ as it gave birth, more powerfully than any other place, to what we call the Western World. Rome’s fascination is endless and, in it, one is constantly surrounded by stunning architectural and artistic treasures from classical antiquity, the Renaissance, and the Baroque and more recent periods.
La Dolce Vita is here: while studying in Rome, students enjoy living in a major European city, with its countless bars, restaurants, and cafés. Art and music festivals abound in the Roman Summer: a series of open-air events including concerts, music, dancing, all to be enjoyed in the delightful evening air. Rome hosts students from all over the world who come to pursue studies notably in Italian language, history, and culture and in art history and architecture.
Here, you will acquire memories lasting a lifetime.
