The History Unit is based on the following Areas of Study for its management, development and research methodologies. Its aim is to continue a well- established tradition at our University, characterised by the integration of different general histories, starting from the ancient world and continuing up to the contemporary age. Focus is put on the close relationship between these periods, including areas of study such as Geographical Studies, the History of Political Doctrines and Papyrology.

The History Unit is located in a wing on the first floor of the Via D’Azeglio Complex, where the professors’ offices can also be found.
It makes use of the structures and computer laboratories available in the Complex. The Sezione di Storia of the Biblioteca Umanistica dei Paolotti (the Paolotti Humanist Library), which seats 80, provides source materials for lessons and research activities.
Didactic support for historical and geographical disciplines, as well as political doctrines, has been obtained thanks to the Department degree programmes.
