Expanded building

This summer, the Institute updated its space by moving its location entirely to the main plaza of Perugia’s historic center—leading to the acquisition of additional classroom and office space. Through expansion, Umbra obtained extra study areas, a new student lounge, and fiber optic internet. Students are now able to study and relax with views of the fountain in the main plaza as well as the rooftop and mountain scenery witnessed from the new, western balcony.



Summer Internship Offered to Food & Sustainability Students

This past spring, Michael Madigan took part in the Umbra Institute’s Food & Sustainability Studies Program, followed by an internship at the Roccafiore Winery.


“In class we learned about what goes into running a wine business, but this hands-on experience taught me so much more,” said Madigan as he described how he aided Roccafiore through his various marketing responsibilities and by helping with the production process.
