The Andreatta College: The Foundation’s guest lodge
The College was acquired by the University of Bologna and subsequently loaned to the Foundation until 2049 by the former rector Fabio Roversi Monaco in 1999. The building was originally unfit for use; The Region of Emilia Romagna entirely financed its renovation, including furnishings and services, with an investment of 1.5 million euros, which was managed by the University.
On January 30, 2012 the President of the Republic, Giorgio Napolitano, named the College after Professor Beniamino Andreatta. Today, it guarantees world-class facilities to scholars from Italy and around the world.
The College was designed to accommodate doctoral and post-doctoral students as well as visiting scholars from European institutes of higher learning wishing to conduct research at the Dossetti Library. The building is conveniently located next to the library, and is equipped with seven bedrooms on two floors, a small library for internal use and a kitchen.
Alongside the Foundation’s extensive research infrastructure and activities as Unesco Chair, the Andreatta College aims to become a modest but bright point of reference in international relations and national training within the larger framework of the European system of research. It is in this regard that the Andreatta College was credited in the list of university colleges of merit in 2015, under Law 240.
