We are based in the so called Southern Umbrian Valley, in the city of Foligno, which is the third urban center of the Umbria Region with about 68.000 inhabitants, after Perugia, the capital city, and Terni. Our area is mostly rural ad it is well known for the good gastronomy and the density of well preserved historical sites, full of heritage from the middle-age and the Roman period.
The majority of VET and HE students are placed in companies located in Foligno or in the surrounding municipalities. Training courses takes place all over the Region, depending on the period of the year, the topic and the type of the course. Besides Foligno and Perugia, our favourite locations are Trasimeno Lake in summer period, the Colfiorito mountain valley in winter and the many agritouristic facilities scattered in our beautiful countryside for the rest of the year.
