I.T.A.S. "G.GARIBALDI" WEBSITE
ITAS "GIUSEPPE GARIBALDI" of Rome is a technical school that comes from the Scuola Podere opened in Valmontone thanks to the Ministry of Agriculture and the Province of Rome in 1872.
At the end of 1875, the school was transferred to Rome in a farmhouse of S. Pio V, a villa owned by the prince Corsini, on Gianicolo, between Porta San Pancrazio and Porta Cavalleggeri.
In 1882 the School Podere was changed into Practical school of Agriculture and became independent. Later on, thanks to the law on June 6th 1885,the practical school of Agriculture of Rome became dependent from the Ministry of Agriculture and Trade, and was no more autonomous.
In 1907 the school was placed temporally in some rooms of Tenuta San Alessio in Ardeatina street (read in italian), where it is nowadays.
On may 1923 there was the building project of a boarding school by the Practical school of Agriculture in Rome and it was finished in 1928. The ancient external buildings became accessory services.
In 1933 with the law of June 13th 1931 n. 889 the school became The State Technical School of Agriculture.
Nowadays the school is at 524 Ardeatina street between Grotta Perfetta street and Vigna Murata street.
It has got a male boarding school with a canteen and a farm of about 67 hts. as a didactic laboratory for the students.

The headmaster Franco Sapia's greeting
The I.T.A.S. "G.Garibaldi" is an exceptional institute in Italy.
It is a natural park placed in the city near the city centre, modern but also with the features of a hundred years ago. It is specialized to form students in the agricultural-feeding field and the environment.
The natural school farm is 67 hts wide with all the buildings and structures suitable to form environmental technicians.
At the end of 5 years study the students can practice their job activities in farms, industries, environment and natural resources.
We can speak of biological engineering, sustainable agriculture, organic agriculture that our students are able to follow together with specialized universities.
After our diploma our students can attend every university they like, mainly the scientific ones like veterinary, agronomy or sciences or medicine, so we would like to achieve our great hope to have some of these universities inside our institute.
During the school days in the afternoon our students can attend different and specialized courses, so they can make different and qualified jobs.
Welcome to our school and to our website.
