On Saturday the 29th of May and Saturday the 27th of June 2015, the second and third editions of the Rome Business School’s “leARn To” programme took place in Rome. Students had the opportunity to visit Rome’s Trastevere quarter, the Jewish Ghetto and Ancient Rome.
The Rome Business School strongly believes that a deeper knowledge of a city such as Rome and of its artistic, architectural and historical culture can be an added value for our international students. Art and history can be used to provide new perspectives in communication tools, and also to develop creativity and innovation in the field of management.
Guided by an expert in a pleasant walking tour, the second “LeARn To” appointment brought the students to the famous Trastevere quarter, which is more than 2.500 years old. Exploring Campo de’ Fiori and walking towards the Jewish Ghetto, they stopped by Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere to visit its famous church.
On the other hand, on the third appointment, the students had the pleasure to visit the archaeological site in the heart of the Eternal city. Starting from the Colosseum and walking down Via dei Fori Imperiali to the Mercati Traianei, they listened to the guide’s stories and anecdotes about the Ancient Romans surrounded by the greatest ruins of Ancient Rome.
These visits, in line with the philosophy of the “LeARn To” programme, tried to involve the students with a new type of approach, transferring the importance of the continuous development of personal and managerial competencies by taking advantage of our most valuable assets: history and art.
