  • I was invited to the Link Campus University for an important "Lectio Magistralis" dedicated to "art and finance." And with surprise I had the opportunity to visit the wonderful Villa del Casale of Pope Pius V Ghislieri that I had never seen (in this Rome offers continuous surprises) because it had been left for decades in its abandonment. The large complex surrounded by a large park, which today is located in an area of Rome became Central, was built in 1568 by the architect Giovanni Lippi said Nanni di Baccio Bigio by order of the Pope who used it continuously as a summer residence. Stylish, compact and simple construction reflects the personality of Pius V who was the staunch advocate of the return of the Church to the rigors of manners and morals. After 1610 the Villa was purchased by the Chigi and donated in 1870 to Queen Margaret of Savoy to become a home for the blind. By 2016, subtracted to oblivion with a careful restoration has become the headquarters of the Link Campus University, private University in the University context and strongly innovative Italian legally recognized because they study disciplines aimed at developing skills they can offer employment opportunities in a swirling world of work. That is, master's degree programs in Dams (arts, music, fashion, entertainment, sports), digital communication, law, management, economics, international politics and first and second level master. While I was driving along the beautiful park and walking through the hallways and classrooms was sensing anywhere around me a creative spirit, casual and young not only in the magnificent library in which took place the "Lectio Magistralis" but even in fun, unusual cafeteria where probably boys consume a quick meal and visitors pleasantly coffee. The Link Campus University offers the opportunity, do not miss to visit yet another beautiful ancient Roman dwelling. With discretion

  • A Renaissance monumental complex which was recently reused for teaching and research, placed in the care of Link University of economy and therefore fully accessible and open to the public that will go for scientific purposes. Is a complex of buildings of great historical and monumental which historically are linked to many episodes such as the vision that Pope Pius V had a window in the victory of Lepanto; surrounded by greenery, very close to the villa Pamphili, in her Crown a large park enriched by bleachers, fountains, nymphs and fish ponds. Built to a design by Nanni di Baccio Bigio, an estate just outside porta Cavalleggeri, from a stylistic point of view reflects the neo-Renaissance: the main entrance leads to a secret garden, the U-shaped layout of the buildings are the Crown a cloister with a cistern in the middle.
