The Program / Location
Macerata is located off the usual tourist route in central Italy. The historical center is on a hill between the Chienti and Potenza rivers, with the modern town sprawling on the plain below with a population of about 43,000. Truly a charming hill-town with great scenery, and the site of one of Italy’s most favorite opera festivals – Arena Sferisterio – which is held in July and August every year.
The climate is both Mediterranean and Continental. Summer is usually nice and sunny.
The University of Macerata was founded in 1290 and has about 13,000 students. The Summer School program is 4 weeks total, and consists of Italian language courses as well as cultural topics including Italian law. Total of 81 hours of instruction provided for the 4 weeks.
Housing is provided (included in price) in the University Colleges, and meals can be obtained in the University canteen (cafeteria) for 4 – 5 euros. Excursions are also included.
