About us


60 Years of Torleone

Torleone, founded in 1958,  by professionals from the academic, institutional and industrial worlds, was inspired by St. Josemaría Escrivá, founder of Opus Dei, with the aim of ​​being a place for training, studying and discussions, capable of accommodating university students from all over the world.

Since its relocation in 1986 to via Sant’Isaia, Torleone has been a benchmark for the bolognese university scene as it welcomes students, in addition to its residents, to attend a range of formative activities the residence has to offer.

Direction Team

Torleone is lead by professionals in the educational field. Their training is in continuous development; each year the members of the direction conduct refresher training and methodological enrichment.

The personal relationship that develops between direction and students is one of the many strengths of life at Torleone; it’s a relationship built on listening and openness, to calmly face the challenges and embrace increasingly ambitious goals.

Residence Stories

The atmosphere that reigns in Torleone is that of a typical welcoming home that is always open, where everyone cares for each other and works together for the good of all.

Life in the Residence is marked by commitment to daily practice, but is enriched by moments of fun, shared experiences, cultural studies and sports, that must be part of a young and university environment.

Like in a family, every resident is called on to take on small tasks to form a strong sense of responsibility and accountability, and to develop human skills both of relational and managerial nature. This approach will provide a wealth of essential experiences for the student’s personal and professional growth.

Meals are prepared to provide a healthy and balanced diet. Like family, we pamper our students on joyous occasions such as holidays, birthdays and anniversaries.
