In order to find possibilities for the academic interchange between Universidad Francisco Marroquín and the Sapienza, Universitá di Roma, members of this University visited the UFM last February 16th of 2007.
Ferdinando Terranova, director of the School of Architecture, at Sapienza; and Francesca Giofré, from that house of studies, came accompanied by Fortunato Cerasso and Matteo Cattaneo, from the Italian Institute of Culture.
The group met with UFM’s President, Giancarlo Ibárgüen S. and with the dean of the School of Architecture, Roberto Quevedo.
During the meeting, where they interchanged ideas about possible academic interchanges, the President told them the UFM’s mission, that is to teach and diffuse the ethical, juridical and economic principles of a society of free and responsible persons; and the commitment of this university with academic excellence.
