Located just behind Perugia’s cathedral, Umbra’s newest building in Via Bartolo is open and ready for students. A full 7,000 square feet, the Via Bartolo Building occupies what in Italy is called the “piano nobile,” the floor where the nobles who owned the huge building would have lived. Located here are five classrooms, a brand-new digital photography lab, the Umbra library, a multimedia center, lounges for students and faculty, and a number of administrative offices. The only thing missing…is the student body – see you Sunday!
