The Umbra Institute Presents Symposium!

Last week Umbra students gathered in the cozy Caffé Cinastik to participate in the first Symposium, a new academic initiative designed to prompt lively intellectual conversation in a relaxed environment. In an arched room lit by charming candles tucked in tiny nooks, a small group of students met with Journalism professor Marie Bongiovanni to discuss the predetermined topic, a “sense of place”. Why students had chosen to study in Perugia and what their experiences had been like thus far took center stage during the dialogue.


Symposium will meet once each month, and will be facilitated by an Umbra Institute professor, who will select a topic based on his or her own academic expertise.
