An old University in an ever changing word

In 1434 the king of Spain, Alfonso of Aragon, and the king of Sicily, Pope Eugene IV, authorised the foundation of a university in Catania.
In 1444, the first four faculties were established in Medicine, Philosophy, Canonic & Civil Law and Theology & Arts.

The University of Catania considers the internationalization process to be of deeply importance for its development, therefore, it is willing to adopt strategic plans aiming at improving such process, thanks to some different actions to be realized in a short time and some others requiring longer times for their effectiveness but all pursuing the goal of rising its visibility, reputation and attractiveness.
