A warm welcome to our Foundation’s website. I wish all our visitors to feel at home here. I must confess that our house is both complicated to manage and simple in its basic design.

It is complicated because there are many training and research activities running concurrently which involve an increasing number of people, committed and diverse, who choose to undertake our study offer.

The Fondazione Campus has been involved for some time now in offering degree courses in tourism sciences, run in conjunction with the University of Pisa, of Pavia and Italian Switzerland.

It has an established reputation in the field of advanced Management and Business Administration training. It promotes the activities of a corporate university, the Kedrion School. Moreover, it is also involved in other schools, dealing with languages and local territorial knowledge, engineering and architecture, conservation and promotion of cultural heritage.

The Fondazione Campus has recently opened a Study and Research Centre, focusing on the varied disciplines and problems in the field of tourism, to promote a more civilised, modern and advanced approach.

This wealth of activities is held together by a simple basic design: it is the formula of the university campus which places the students at its centre, caring and nurturing them, be they young people enroled on a degree course or professionals and managers studying at one of the Schools.

Those who study and those who teach at our foundation, those who are starting out on their academic career or those who undertake research are integral members of our academic community, which distinguishes itself through its reliability and its willingness to adopt the latest theories and practices.

Multas per gentes is our motto. And the most appropriate expression of my welcome.

Prof. Salvatore Veca

The Fondazione Campus was founded twelve years ago with the idea of establishing university activities in the field of tourism and a professional school for managers in the city of Lucca.

Today, with an ever growing commitment, the Fondazione Campus continues to single out its field of action and interest in the areas of Tourism and the Territory and Management and Business, involving itself in research, university and advanced education through bachelor and Masters degree courses in Tourism, the Kedrion School, the Study and Research Center and the Language School. A modern Career Service office sees to the needs of the Campus students in connection with training and placement. Uniting all these activities is the educational method which the Fondazione Campus has chosen to adopt: a method which places in the foreground attention, care and respect for the students, whether they are young people enrolled in the bachelor degree course or professionals and managers involved in the different Schools.
