The University of Rome ‘Tor Vergata’ began teaching in 1982. Designed on the model of Anglo-Saxon campuses, it occupies an area of approximately 600 hectares. This particular extension has made it possible to develop each of the six Macroareas into separate structures, built in large dedicated spaces.
The University is strongly committed to promoting the international dimension of studies and research, both in its undergraduate and doctoral programmes. There are also joint research programmes (thematic and interdisciplinary), academic exchanges and agreements for the mutual recognition of training credits with the world’s most prestigious universities, with over 800 agreements (bilateral and cultural/scientific cooperation).
“Tor Vergata” is working hard to develop multiple lines of activity related to the “third mission”, thanks to which it creates stable processes of direct interaction with civil society, institutions and the business community, with the aim of promoting culture, social innovation and territorial growth.

Our school is the leader of a network of almost 60 schools, that includes more than half of the educational Institutes in Verona and province and some schools belonging to other Italian regions. The experienced network teachers work with students up to 18 years of age. Students will be able to share every step of the project during its development in order to keep it alive and updated for all schools, teachers and general users. Translation into the main European languages studied is also possible (in addition to English, Italian, Spanish, German, French, Chinese and Russian). A constant confrontation among teachers will be necessary to verify the effectiveness of the atlas.
