About the University
The University of Udine was founded in 1978 as part of the reconstruction plan of Friuli after the earthquake in 1976. Its aim was to provide the Friulian community with an independent centre for advanced training in cultural and scientific studies. Udine and its University are a point of reference in a region which is historically a meeting place and crossroads of different worlds and cultures. Geographically situated in the centre of the European Union, the University of Udine plays an active role in a close network of relations, committed to sharing its knowledge and ideas.
Udine is a city in northeastern Italy. The hilltop Udine Castle is home to several museums and an art gallery with works by Tiepolo and Caravaggio. It has views of the city and surrounding mountains. The central Piazza della Libertà has Renaissance buildings, including the pink-and-white-marble Loggia del Lionello and a clock tower. Udine Cathedral has a baroque interior and a museum of religious decorative arts.
