The university campus was born from the conversion of the former Morgagni hospital in Forli, a complex of the early twentieth century that extends over an area of about 9 hectares near the historic center.
The project consists of 22.600 m² of requalified area and 13.300 m² of new construction for a total of 35.900 m².
The realization of the complex started in 2003 through two different phases.
In 2014 the most ambitious element was completed – the new teaching hub – composed of the three bodies of the classrooms and, above all, the linking section called “Trefolo”, the backbone of the system: a long light and transparent urban tunnel open towards the park.
The Campus Project has also an experimental value in terms of sustainable development. It is based on a system of district heating and cogeneration production of both thermal and electrical energy production with hot primary fluid in the Energy House, which serves a large area close to the campus.
The Campus hosts Political Science, Economics and Languages-Translators for a total of over 8.000 students and teaching staff.
