Profile and history

At the beginning of the 1950s, a group of intellectuals established the Free High School of Historical Science. It was from this group of intellectuals that the idea of building a University was created. The idea took shape in February 1959 by will of the mayor of Verona, Giorgio Zanotto, together with the Provincial Administration and Verona’s Chamber of Commerce. Thus they created the Free Faculty of Economics and Commerce and the Consortium for university studies and in the same year was fixed the location of the University in Palazzo Giuliari, currently home of the Rectorate. The project was finally and definitively achieved in 1982, when the governmental authorities gave Verona the autonomy and status of its University. Thanks to the precious support and strict collaboration of the main public and private governmental institutional representatives, and thanks to the support of its expert teachers, Verona University has grown over the years.
