The Institute “Ciuffelli-Einaudi”, was created in 2009 by the union of three school buildings of Todi: the Agricultural Technical Institute “A.Ciuffelli”, the VET School for the Industry and Handicrafts and the VET School for Accountants and Surveyors “Einaudi”.
The school offers six different curricula: Agriculture (that is the most ancient course of study on this topic in Italy, founded in 1864); Tourism; Administration, Finance and Marketing; Environment and Buildings; Fashion and Electronics. The school is organized in three different sites and is located in historical buildings; it has modern and efficient classrooms and laboratories, green areas, a canteen and two dormitories for male and female students.
IIS “Ciuffelli-Einaudi” is also endowed with a farm with green houses and a botanical garden, a teaching farm for activities in sustainable education and a cellar, used as laboratory for wine production. The school is also partner of the Foundation for Technical Higher Education in Technologies for the Made in Italy – Umbria.
Students and teachers worked a lot to create this project: “Finchè La barca va” a social enterprise active in the municipality of Todi, whose goal is to offer elderly people a series of services and involve them in activities that make them the protagonists.
