Venice area

Venice is the capital of north-east Italy, among the most innovative manufacturing regions in Europe, where a network of SMEs is able to produce anything. Nine universities are located in this area, including the University of Padua, which is one of the oldest universities (founded in 1222). This makes Venice a center of attraction for international researchers and students, especially for those from the closest areas of Asia and North Africa.
