   Italy or the Italian Republic is located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea with an extensive range of study abroad prospects. It is surrounded by France, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, San Marino and Vatican City. Italy is a highly developed country and is one of the world's many industrialised nations and leads in world trade and exports. Who does not know the world’s automotive brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini and fashion brands like Gucci, Prada, Versace, Armani and Benetton? They all come from Italy.

   What is so different about Italy as compared to other EU states? It is renowned for its creativity, innovativeness and high-quality businesses in sectors like wine, automobile, machinery, food, design and fashion. Many international students choose to study abroad in Italy for various reasons.


The post-war era witnessed both economic growth and political instability in Italy, as various Christian Democratic-led governments rose and fell in rapid succession and radical right- and left-wing organizations engaged in acts of violence. In 1984, Italy and the Holy See revised the Lateran Pact, bringing to an end Catholicism’s status as an official religion while preserving for it an important role in society, particularly with regard to education. Although political violence diminished after thelate 1980s, corruption has remained endemic in spite of various attempts at reform and a historic corruption investigation that led to the near-collapse of Italy’s political parties in 1992, with a particularly devastating effect on the Christian Democrats. Growing secularism has significantly reduced Catholic Church membership during the last few decades, although it remains by far the largest religious denomination. Over 80% of Italians identify as Catholic though only around a third of the population is active in the Church. Immigration and Protestant evangelism have led to a modest increase in religious diversity through Italy’s close historical relationship with the Roman Catholic Church have led to a perceived tacit hostility toward non-Catholics, and especially non-Christians. Although there have been incidents of anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim behavior, religious conflict has not been prominent in Italy’s recent history. A 2005 antiterrorism decree increased the penalty for the wearing of anything, including burqas, that hides one’s identity. Crucifixes continue to be displayed in public buildings, and court cases have determined that they are symbols of civic values and Italian culture.


   Italy is known for its study abroad with the University of Salerno established way back in the 9th century and the University of Bologna established in 1088. 13 Universities have evolved in Italy in the medieval times and this land has nurtured major discoveries in physics, biology, chemistry, architecture, mathematics, and engineering. A few unforgettable names who have contributed to these major discoveries are Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Galileo, Lagrange, Fermi, Bruno Rossi, Avogadro, Torricelli, Volta, Malphigi, Golgi etc. Italy has contributed to the reforms of higher education as one of the founder members in the Bologna process.
