A Unique Experience

Extraordinary spaces create the ideal environment for building friendships, studying, culture and personal training.

The ingredients that make the life at Capodifaro a unique experience are: friendship, international environment, training activities, moments of celebration,  workshops, and meetings with guest from the public world. Two examples: the summer workshop “Think global… act local!” and the meetings entitled “The future of the world? Children”.

Capodifaro really is the ideal environment to study, have fun and work hard!


Volunteering and Solidarity: Becoming Socially Responsible

Volunteering is an opportunity to grow, and train for, an altruistic human awareness. Students can give their time to serve others while discovering how much they receive back in return.

As part of “Social Intelligence” program, residents collaborate with various volunteering association like “Teatro Necessario” and the prison of Marassi, with the Association which promotes social projects in Burundi, the Association Ponti e Migranti-Genova.

Among the activities we like to mention: “The menu of life” and “A journey beyond prejudice”.

Hobbies, art and culture

There is no shortage of sports activities, conference and congresses in the daily life at the Residence. Peschiere becomes a place where art, music, literature, sport come together.

For example we hosted meetings such as: “Is there a bridge between work and family?”, and “Man and woman: towards which model?”.

The party with residents’ families in May is the most significant event that take place every year.

Christian Formation

Capodifaro is a place where passion for every dimension of human nature is stimulated, with the genuine university spirit: open to truth and respectful of everyone’s freedom.

The Hall of Residence provides the opportunity to confront important questions about human existence.
Peschiere follows some traditions that every Christian family does and we celebrate the Holy Mass. The chaplain is available to all students.

Participation in these activities is always voluntary and the Residence is open to students of any religious denomination.
