For fifty years, UGA Cortona has enjoyed the support of its dedicated alumni. Its Cortona Italy Alumni Organization (CIAO) connects and nurtures a community of alumni and friends of the program. Their efforts maintain an important part of UGA Cortona’s educational and social culture, and provide an advocacy base for the future of the program.

The CIAO website is an excellent resource for UGA Cortona history, and a great way for alumni and friends of the program to keep in touch. For information on CIAO, including how new alumni can join, visit
