About Us

The Department of Communication Studies at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, sent students on a study abroad trip to Urbino, Italy, in summer 2016. Their mission: to seek out what makes Urbino unique and to report with words, photos and video all the elements that give this city such a strong sense of place.

Urbino is a center for study abroad programs not only for U.S. universities, but also for ones around the world. Priests and nuns also come to Urbino to study Italian. Their presence adds a global diversity to this city of 12,000 residents perched at the top of a mountain, surrounded by the colorful Italian countryside.

We hope you enjoy exploring our website and discovering a special place surrounded by a stone wall and enveloped in history and culture.
