What's up at the University of Palermo?

7

Welcome to the University of Palermo, Italy. It was founded in 1806 and is now one of the largest universities in Italy. The buildings of the university are quite all over the city, some old, some new, and some with great history. Enjoy the visit!

The university of Palermo was founded in 1806 by Ferdinand III of Bourbon, King of Naples and of the two Sicilies. Now it is one of the largest universities in Italy with over 65,000 students coming mainly from the west side of the island. It is mainly based in Palermo but is also present in Agrigento, Caltanissetta, and Trapani.

Here is a little tour of the university.

This is the rector (in Italian we say Magnifico Rettore that sounds like the Magnificent Rector):

This is the School of Letters with its toilets:

This is the School of Economics:

This is the School of Architecture:

The headquarters are in a building that formerly was where the Tribunal of the Holy Office of the Inquisition of Palermo had its headquarters

It’s a nice and calm university, you can go jogging in the campus or do exercise and you find dogs everywhere, even in Lectures Hall!

Here is a stop motion I made in the campus of the university:

    When in London

    What makes travel a great experience is the newness of things. The environment, people and culture tend to be different from customs back home. Coming from the Philippines, I found a lot of novel things in the United Kingdom, especially in the city of London.

    LomoLocations: Virginia City in Nevada

    Virginia City is a state-maintained historic site in the western part of the United States. In the 1860s, mining drew in investors and businessmen to the area. They built saloons, inns and a variety of stores in Gothic and Greek Revival styles. Many of these buildings have been preserved in vivid detail. Western fonts welcome tourists, and some modern-day merchants even operate within these photogenic, pilaster-lined shops.

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!

    Vintage Gallery: Art School Classes

    If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.
