University of Trieste
In 1877, Baron Pasquale Revoltella, an important entrepreneur and patron of the arts and culture, set up a secondary school specialised in Commerce, the ‘Scuola Superiore di Commercio’, to cater for the practical and professional needs of Trieste’s fast-growing entrepreneurial class. In 1920, the school was renamed the ‘Institute for Business Studies’ and by 1924 it was known as the University of Economics and Business, offering just one degree of the same name. In 1938, a new Faculty of Law and Political Science was opened with two degree programmes. Henceforth, the institution was referred to as the ‘Regia Università degli Studi’ (Royal University). In the following years, ten further faculties were added.
Ca' Foscari University of Venice
Founded on August 6, 1868 as the “Scuola Superiore di Commercio” (Advanced School for Commerce), Ca' Foscari was the first Italian institution to deal with advanced education in Business and Economics. The original main office is still found in the grand gothic palace “volta de canal” (on the bend of the Grand Canal), in the heart of Venice.
