Heritage library

The library at Cairoli College is home to more than 50.000 books and a series of legacies left by ex Alumni and important academic figures. It is regularly used as a study room by the College Alumni.

Restoration works

In the 1950s, when Plinio Fraccaro obtained the building which is now home to the College, he had it completely restored: this includes the facade, partially rebuilt, and the internal part of the building, completely renewed. Next, thanks to the current Emeritus Rector of the College, Graziano Leonardelli, the building was further renewed, with an unprecedented care to its aesthetics.

Artistic heritage

The College regularly organises exhibitions and events tied to Contemporary Art.
The College’s art gallery started its activity in December 1971 thanks to the passion of the Rector of the time, Marco Fraccaro. His work was continued by his successor Graziano Leonardelli, allowing the College to become a polestar in Contemporary art. Thanks to the artists’ donations, the College’s rooms are currently home to around 500 artworks by different painters and sculptors.
