A slide presentation of the University

  1. 1. Urbino is located in the Marche Region, in Central Italy
  2. 2. The walled city of Urbino, a time capsule tucked away in the hills near Italy's upper Adriatic coast, may give a better idea of what life in the Renaissance must have been like than all the monuments and collections of Florence and Rome. Paul Hofmann, The New York Times
  3. 3. Unesco’s World Heritage List – Urbino: http://www.worldheritagesite.org/sites/urbino.html
  4. 4. Urbino has been the birthplace of a number of important figures in Italian culture including the architect Girolamo Genga, the painters Raphael and Federico Barocci, the architect and mathematician Muzio Oddi, and in the 20th century, the writer Paolo Volponi, who was intimately involved with Urbino until his death in 1994. It was to the memory of Federico’s son, Duke Guidobaldo, who successfully kept up the cultural splendour of the Urbino court - albeit with increasingly frequent contributions from the papacy - that Baldassare Castiglione dedicated his famous book, “The Courtier”. Castiglione had been a guest at the court of Urbino and held important positions there from 1504 onwards, and his book was intended to describe the model courtier, the ideal Renaissance gentleman, whom he had seen so memorably embodied at the Montefeltro court. In 1506, just two years before he died, Duke Guidobaldo founded the Collegio dei Dottori on which the modern University is based.
  5. 5. THE UNIVERSITY OF URBINO
  6. 6. The University of Urbino grew out of the Collegio dei Dottori which was already active around the middle of the fifteenth century and “authorized to act as an appeal court for suits involving the Duchy of Urbino”. At the request of Duke Guidobaldo da Montefeltro, this college was officially recognized in a papal bull of 1506, issued by Pope Julius II of the della Rovere family, and entrusted with the administration of penal and civil law throughout the Duchy.
  7. 7. Today the University of Urbino is a State University. It numbers 8 Departments and about 15,000 students. Its departments are housed in buildings of outstanding architectural interest, and it offers students and scholars a wide range of courses and research opportunities. Urbino provides the ideal setting for a university: the ancient city centre is on a human scale; everything is within walking distance and there are numerous opportunities for meeting local people, teachers and students.
