Rome, Europe and the Mediterranean

Rome, the eternal city, holds a profound historical significance and remains highly relevant in today’s world. As the capital of the ancient Roman Empire, Rome served as a vibrant center of culture, politics, and trade. Besides being the capital of both Italy and hosting the Vatican State within its city borders, Rome is home to international institutions like the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). These organizations play a vital role in addressing global challenges such as food security, sustainable agriculture, and rural development. Their presence in Rome reflects the city’s status as a global hub for research, policy-making, and collaborative efforts to tackle pressing issues that impact our food systems. Rome is the ideal location for students wishing to study sustainability and the challenges of the future.

Our Classroom is the Crossroads between Global North and South

Thanks to its location in the center of the Mediterranean, at the crossway of Europe, Africa and Asia, Rome stands at the meeting point of cultures, nationalities, and ideas, and it is as much a catalyst for change and growth today as it has been for millennia.
