BERGAMO AND THE CENTRE

Bergamo is located at the foot of the Alps in Northern Italy, and has a population of about 120,000. It is situated in a picturesque setting, partly on a plain (Città Bassa) and partly in the hills (Città Alta).

The city dates back to the ancient Roman period of history. In the 6th century the Lombards ruled the town; in the 14th century it fell under the rule of the duchy of Milan. The city flourished in the late 15th century under Venetian government. The old quarter is perfectly preserved from medieval times.

In 2018, the Centre moved from its previous location on via Pignolo to its current location on via Clara Maffei, which is just a few minutes walk from the Centre to the lower town, and from the Bergamo railway station.

"The cultural side of living in Italy is fantastic. The small villages, art, paintings, the bells telling the time, beautiful and inspirational." Alumni
