Urbino lies in the northern part of central Italy’s Marche Region, nestled between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. Many say the Renaissance started here under the patronage of Duke Federico da Montefeltro, whose twin-turreted palace still houses an outstanding collection of period art. Work with a team of experienced media professionals to create multimedia publications about the town of Urbino, Italy, and get a taste of being a foreign correspondent.

Students will live and learn at the University of Urbino, with all meals included.

Students will create a variety of multimedia content that will be published as both a website and an app. You will learn how to use the tools that journalists use today to create compelling multimedia journalism.

  • research and report a story in a foreign setting
  • produce multimedia content for a website and/or tablet publication

  • work with an interpreter
  • speak some basic Italian

Students will study photography, international reporting and video and will create multimedia content for an app designed for tablets as well as a website.  Each student will be required to write a story, shoot photos and create either a slideshow or a short video story.

Coached by teachers who have won Pulitzer Prizes and National Magazine Awards, students will work on skills critical for successful journalism, including the basics of reporting and telling compelling stories, through both words and images. Students will learn how to navigate as professional journalists in a foreign culture by working with interpreters and crafting ready-to-publish features and news stories. Students will also study “survival” Italian and learn about the history and culture of the region.

Study in Le Marche: Urbino University

Study in Le Marche: Urbino University | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The University of Urbino dates back to 1506 when Duke Guidobaldo I founded the “Collegio dei Dottori”, and from its inception, it continued to grow and develop.

Urbino is the ideal place for a summer course in Italian Language and Culture. It is still a small city where you can get from place to place on foot, and it offers many opportunities for foreign students to meet people from Urbino as well as university students and professors

You’re two steps away from a great experience!

Marche d'Eccellenza - Made in Marche Forum

Marche d'Eccellenza - Made in Marche Forum | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

“Marche d'eccellenza” which represents an ongoing exploratory study on a territorial umbrella-brand. Since 2009, stakeholders in the Marche region agreed to collect all regional typical products (agro-food and manufacture) and touristic destinations under this umbrella-brand in order to stimulate new aggregations and valorize the Marche “uniquenesses”. An analysis of the first “Marche d'eccellenza” forum will express the issues arising from dealing with a territorial umbrella-brand. Particular attention is given to the support that the university can offer in assisting this process.
