Forty years ago the University of Waterloo launched its program in Rome. In a dark studio on Vicolo Savelli, a narrow laneway behind the Cancelleria we set up camp in the city of cities. We made Cultural History real. We created the capstone of an education for generations of Waterloo students. The School now invites all of its graduates to join in celebrating this milestone. We are planning a four-day celebration that will allow alumni to recall their time in Rome and experience some of the dramatic developments that have taken place recently in the Program and the City.
We will launch celebration at a reception to be held in the Waterloo Studio on Wednesday, October 30 and end it with a gala dinner on Saturday evening, November 2. In between you can select tours to Tivoli and walks in Rome, as well as a symposium, a concert and an evening reception on a terrace overlooking the both ancient and the baroque Rome. We are expecting a large crowd and do have limited capacity in some events, so please book early and choose the events you wish to attend.
