The University of Padua history goes far back into the early years of modern Europe and is one of the oldest schools in Italy.
The school was founded in 1222 by a group of students and teachers that came to Padua from Bologna to start a more liberal way of studying.
So it would only make sense that the University of Padua logo stands for “Liberty of Padova, Universally & for All.” It first started primarily as a law school and quickly began to include other majors such as astronomy, philosophy and medicine.
The University of Padua Medical School began in 1399 and remains one of the traditional fields of the university. University of Padua Medicine can be considered in many ways the birthplace of modern medicine.
