Moreover, Piacenza is one of the cities of art of the region Emilia-Romagna, with its palaces, churches and museums.

The University

Founded in Milan in 1921, Università Cattolica is the only Italian university that boasts a national dimension with its five campuses: Milan, Brescia, Cremona, Piacenza and Rome. Piacenza Campus is located in the heart of the Italian agri-food system, an area characterised by cultural and productive liveliness. It offers large green spaces, areas for leisure and socializing and rationally designed environments, functional for the most advanced research and the most effective teaching. The added value is the relationship between students and professors, which stimulates students to pursue higher goals, for a wonderful array of future job opportunities.
