Why Study in Italy?:
Italy FlagModena and Reggio Emilia are an important link between Northern and Southern Italy and between Italy and the rest of Europe. From Modena and Reggio Emilia, one can reach Milan in under two hours, Florence in an hour and a half, and Rome in three and a half hours. The Bologna airport, situated 39 km from Modena and 58 km from Reggio Emilia, serves all the main national and many international routes. The other international airports closeby, Linate and Malpensa and Orio al Serio, are around Milan. The Romagna Riviera, famous throughout Europe for its beaches and night clubs, is only an hour and a half by car or train. Those preferring the mountains can enjoy the 50 km of ski trails in Monte Cimone, the largest ski resort in the Northern Apennines. In addition to skiing, the Apennines offer excursions, fun and relaxation, and are only between half an hour and an hour from Modena or Reggio Emilia.
  • The cities are only 19 km apart and connecting trains run approximately every half hour. 
  • Emilian cuisine is lauded as one of the best in the world. 
  • Today Reggio Emilia is home to many ethnic groups and is becoming increasingly multicultural, with 11.4% of its population consisting of foreign residents. 
  • Those who love to ski and hike will find the mountains very close by; while those who love the sun and sea will enjoy the longest beach in Europe on the Romagna coast in towns like Rimini, Riccione and Cattolica, known as the Romagna Riviera.

  • As part of the Adisu Casa dello Studente, the University has two dormitories located in Via Galanti and Via Guglielmi not so far from the city centre.
