University of Modena and Reggio Emilia

Via Università 4, 41121 - Modena (Italy) - Viale Antonio Allegri 13, 42121 - Reggio Emilia (Italy)

The University of Modena dates back to 1175, a few decades after the birth of the University of Bologna, making it one of the oldest universities in Italy and the world. It was established by the city of Modena, which financed professors' contracts through local taxation.
The subsequent history of the University was profoundly marked by the changing fortunes of the ruling Este family. The year 1998 was of fundamental importance in the history of the University when the Reggio Emilia site was instituted and the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia was founded, with the support of local institutions.
