Brown in Bologna

The ancient city of Bologna is one of Europe’s oldest centers of higher learning and a superbly preserved jewel of medieval charm. The Brown Center in Italy is located in the heart of the city, in the same area of the University of Bologna, our partner institution, whose proud history of famous alumni includes Dante, Petrarch, Erasmus, Copernicus, and, more recently, Pier Paolo Pasolini.
