Programme of Events 2008

In 2008, the University of Perugia commemorates its seven century-long history, as attested by the Papal Bull, with which, on the 8th of September 1308, Pope Clement V, granted the authorisation for the establishment of the Studium Generale, or University.

This Anniversary represents a moment of great importance for the University because it highlights the University's historic origins and emphasises the role that it continues to play in both the national and international context, promoting scientific research, and the education of new generations.

With the celebrations planned, the University intends to reassert its commitment to guaranteeing the cultural, social and economic contributions that it has provided throughout the centuries.
