SAPIENZA Università di Roma - Faculty of Engineering
The first school of Engineering was established by motu proprio of Pope Pius VII on 23 October 1817. The school was conceived on the basis of the two most renowned engineering schools in Europe, the Viennese and Parisian schools. A local school was needed mainly due to the exorbitant costs to be paid for the recruiting of foreign engineers for the Papal State. At the same time a branch school was also opened in Ferrara, but it did not last long. Its main building is in via Eudossiana 18, nearby Colle Oppio. The Dean is Fabrizio VESTRONI.

The first “Scientific Workshop with the Press”, called H2Roma, was organised in 2002 thanks to the intuition of and efforts made by some researchers of the Sapienza University of Rome, the National Research Council (CNR) and the National Council for New Technology, Energy and the Environment (ENEA) working in the field of Hydrogen as Energy Vector. H2Roma is a project to foster a new energy culture, a communication approach aimed at making the potential future more understandable as well as raising more awareness as to the needed cultural change. “Anticipating” instead of “running after” is the strength given by the Energy of culture that allows to gain the real competitive advantage.
POLO IDROGENO Regione Lazio (The Centre for Hydrogen - Latium Region)
