University for Foreigners of Perugia
Italy’s Ambassador in the World

Founded in the early 1920’s with the aim of teaching Italian civilization and artistic heritage to foreigners, this University has distinguished itself from the beginning as a symbol of open-mindedness and tolerance and as a meeting point for people of different cultures, and is now a real ‘laboratory’ of intercultural education. Its exclusive identity is currently represented by the specialist vocation of teaching Italian as a second language and its cultural forms such as art, literature and business. Its institutional responsibility is to promote Italian language and culture throughout the world and to encourage a greater appreciation for the diversities among us.
