Verona is one of the most fascinating European cities; as a town of art, it welcomes us with its elegant monuments and the kindness of the Venetian tradition.
Beloved since antiquity by scholars and men of letters, the town was a ‘must’ for anybody involved in top-level learning and used to attract highly cultured foreigners to Italy thanks to its artistic and natural beauties.
The town enchants thanks to its geographical position close to the hills surrounding it along with the medieval walls, and is crossed by the sinuous course of the Adige river, which lively flows under ancient monumental bridges. The several “Lungadige”, i.e. ways following the river and offering unforgettable landscapes, are particularly picturesque in any season. Seat of the most ancient library in the world, the “Biblioteca Capitolare”, the town had enjoyed cultural prestige since the Roman age.
The poet Catullus lived nearby in Sirmione, on the banks of the Garda Lake. In the medieval period, the members of the Della Scala family, powerful lords of the town, adorned it with marble monuments worthy of a capital and proved to be enlightened sponsors of a cosmopolitan court, which welcomed also the supreme poet Dante Alighieri.
It is from those Medieval times that the cultural phenomena leading to the 20th-century foundation of the University of Verona emerged. The present university is a young institution, whose prestige has been recognised thanks to its quality of research and teaching and to its opening to international relationships.
Spending a period of study or work at the University of Verona is surely a stimulating experience, able to enrich formation and to offer precious chances in order to appreciate Italy and its traditions.
William Shakespeare celebrated this town as a unique and exclusive place where the poetry of feeling can be fully expressed
“There is no world without Verona walls,
But purgatory, torture, hell itself.
Hence-banished is banish’d from the world,
And world’s exile is death.”
(Romeo and Juliet, Act III, Scene iii)
Today this city is lively and modern, open to the world also thanks to its University.
