The Manor of San Pio V
Architect Giovanni Lippi, known as Nanni di Baccio Bigio (… – Rome, 1568)
The manor was built on the order of Pope Pius V (Antonio Ghislieri) back in the XVI century • Summer residence of the Pope until 1655 • Chigi family’s ownership • In 1870, the Manor becomes property of Queen Margherita of Savoy who donated it to be used as a hospice for blind people • The Manor becomes Sant’Alessio Regional Centre – Margherita di Savoia per i Ciechi • Since 2016, the Manor has become the seat of Link Campus University.
Most of the classes are held in the Manor, within the Romagnoli building. All the classrooms are well-equipped and limited in size to receive 25 students so as to encourage direct dialogue between professors and students. Furthermore, the particular room layout enables teachers to apply a teaching methodology combining frontal lessons, simulations and lab activities with the use of PC to create a learning experience based on a close collaboration among students as well as between professors and students.
The Gymnasium hosts major events and seminars and has a capacity of 250 seats.
The study room is located inside Casale San Pio V. It provides a computer sharing service and is one of the students’ meeting points.
