Greek and Latin Summer School

"Otium sine litteris mors est et hominis vivi sepultura" («leisure without letters is a living death unto man»): so wrote Lucius Annaeus Seneca, philosopher, playwright and tutor to the emperor Nero. And this is also the aim of our Summer School: combining summer holidays in an exciting place with the study of classical languages.

The Bologna University Greek and Latin Summer School, organised by the Department of Classics and Italian Studies, offers intensive courses in Greek and Latin with the aim of enabling students to read some of the fundamental texts of our cultural tradition. Further classes will touch on moments of Classical literature, Greek and Roman history and history of art, supplemented by visits to museums and archaeological sites (in Bologna and in Rome).

Since 2007 we have had students (aged 18 to 75) coming from these countries and cities!
