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.
There is also a PhD programme in Philological-Literary, Historical-Philosophical and Artistic Sciences.
