On February 7th-8th, UGA Cortona hosted the first AACUPI meeting of 2019.  Founded in Rome in 1978, the Association of American College and University Programs in Italy (AACUPI) is a non-profit organization dedicated to identifying and resolving legal and fiscal problems inherent to North American institutions of higher education operating in Italy.

Cortona celebrates the University of Georgia’s fiftieth year in the city with events on Saturday, June 8, 2019.

Monument to Gino Schippa


The ceramics class of Summer 2018, led by instructor Alexis Gregg, undertook a very special project that will grace our campus for years to come.  Together they researched, designed, sculpted, and fired a beautiful glazed ceramic monument dedicated to UGA Cortona’s beloved friend and caretaker, Gino Schippa, who passed away in August 2016. 

As we enter the final weeks of the summer semester, our students and faculty are focused on finishing their artworks for the Mostra, which opens next Tuesday, July 24. 

UGA Cortona is proud to partner with our very good friends Cortona On The Move to produce Baci From Cortona, a photographic celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the UGA Cortona program.
