The school and its setting
The Idea Verona Study Centre occupies an independent building within the “Don Bosco” Salesian Institute, which forms part of the well-known worldwide Italian scholastic organisation that, in Verona, also includes a university residence.
Situated right in the heart of Verona, the School is located only a hundred or so metres from the Castelvecchio. This mediaeval building, which houses a prestigious museum with adjoining arts library, is just a short walk from the main town square, Piazza Bra, the Arena and the Teatro Filarmonico, where a season of operas and symphony concerts takes place each year.
The school, besides being located in an enviably central site and including ample space for socialising, enjoys the tranquillity necessary for study and concentration.
Verona, the 4th city in Italy
Verona is a city rich in history, art and culture (whose entire historic centre constitutes a UNESCO World Heritage Site), making it into a favourite destination or at least compulsory stopping-off point for the refined and well-read traveller. This dynamic city has a lively and hard-working soul and is located near the major cultural and economic centres of Northern Italy and of Europe. Verona has, therefore, a dual nature: it is both a modern and an ancient city. For those coming from abroad, Verona can rightly claim to be “close at hand”; it is easy to reach by all means of transportation, in that it forms a major international trading hub and can boast highly developed infrastructure and services.
