Università degli Studi di Firenze (University of Florence)
The University of Florence dates back to the Studium Generale set up by the Florentine Republic in 1321. It has had very famous scholars (Galileo Galilei) and professors as well as the two most recent Italian Prime Ministers (Giuseppe Conte and Mario Draghi). Only in 1923 however the University acquired its actual name and was transformed into a modern comprehensive university, with its 21 Departments and 10 Schools.
The Unifi offers 127 Bachelor Degrees 57 Masters Degrees, 9 Long-cycle degrees, 24 PhD Programes and over 50 specialization schools.

Unifi is one of the most popular Universities for Erasmus students (over 900 incoming a year) and is part of EUniWell, a European Universities Alliance. The network has identified four key areas for research and teaching, closely linked to UN Sustainable Development Goals.
