The Università degli Studi della Repubblica di San Marino (University of the Republic of San Marino)

The Università degli Studi della Repubblica di San Marino was founded in 1985. It is a small university located geographically in the heart of Italy but with the capability of acting at the international level, because it belongs to a sovereign state.

A small enclave within the Italian state, the ancient Republic of San Marino, the only surviving independent city-state of the many that existed in Italy before it was unified in the nineteenth century, is morphologically identified by the massive rocky cliffs of Mount Titano. Over the centuries, San Marino was able to preserve its independence by establishing diplomatic and consular relationships with many nations. In 2008 the historic city centre of the capital, Città, Borgo Maggiore and Mount Titano became a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the motivation “as a testimony to the continuity of a free republic since the Middle Ages”.

Associated with the university are important intellectuals and scholars such as Umberto Eco, Renato Zangheri, Giulio Carlo Argan and Luciano Canfora. There is an ample selection of courses of study, from undergraduate and graduate degree programmes to master courses, from Advanced Education to the Research Doctorate in Historical Studies. The teaching is characterized by the excellence of the scientific and cultural standing of the faculty and the services to the students, offered in the various venues of the University which are located in a unique environmental and architectural context.
