Aldini Valeriani Institute

Aldini Valeriani Institute

The Aldini Valeriani Institute is a secondary technical school located in Bologna, in the north of Italy.

The Aldini Institute is one of the most ancient school in Italy and Europe. Since 170 years it has been the fulcrum in the training of managers, technicians and skilled laborers.

Since 1884 the Aldini Institute has had a lot of transformations and it has enriched the educational supply with new technical and professional leanings in study. But the original mission is still current: to create and hold a deep bond between learning, new technologies, world of work, national and international industries.

The school is deeply connected to the territory and its story. During years teachers and students have rebuilted the mechanical evolution in the factories through the restoration of the machines and utensils and they have give birth to the Museum of Industrial Heritage, that provides documentary evidence of the local production activities from Renaissance to nowadays.
