Ejta Milan 2015 will be hosted by the Catholic University of Milan, located in the historical heart of the italian city.
The Catholic University: the history
Founded in Milan in 1921 by Father Agostino Gemelli, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is Europe’s most important Catholic university with about 40.000 enrolled students. It is also the only university in Italy with campuses all over the country: in Milan, Piacenza, Cremona, Brescia and Rome – which is also home to the Agostino Gemelli General Hospital. Academic excellence, a commitment to charting the frontiers of research, and high standards of services are the strengths of an institution long recognised for its openness to innovation and change. Università Cattolica holds a place in European tradition as a seat of cultural development; the strong and essential focus on a comprehensive, unifying building of knowledge facilitates an understanding and interpretation of the complexities of life today. The university’s mission translates into the offer of an education focused on development of the person as a whole.
Milan, where innovation meets art
Milan was the thirteenth most-visited city in the world in 2014, and is one the three most important destinations for 2015. A city to explore and love, full of treasures and a lively night life, Milan has long been an interesting and vibrant place. Milan has played a considerable role in Italian cultural history, and is one of the country’s major art cities; not only is there the magnificent gothic Duomo, but many fine buildings, churches, and museums, without forgetting the lively contemporary art scene, and some eye-catching modern architecture. Countless works of art are housed in Milan, most within walking distance of central Piazza del Duomo. Among Italian cities, Milan is one of the most modern and avant-garde. It is impossible to come in Milan, and not go to Via Montenapoleone or Via della Spiga, the two sides of the celebrated “fashion quadrilateral”, the center of the Italy’s shopping capital, and the showcase for Italian design excellence.
