College of Engineering
University La Sapienza

   It is situated in one of the most beautiful sites of Rome, between the Colosseum, the archaeological area, and the early Christian Basilicas. In the courtyard of the College you can see a piece of art dating back to Renaissance architecture: the ancient well designed by Simone Mosca. It lies inside the former old Cloister of "S.Pietro in Vincoli" (St.Peter in Chains).
The Engineering College occupied the area of an ancient Monastery, "S.Pietro in Vincoli", situated on the gentle slopes of the Esquilino hill (one of the seven hills on which Rome was built).
The Church of "S.Pietro in Vincoli" was built on the Empress Eudossia's buildings, to preserve St.Peter's chains. These can be found still nowadays in the Church, together with the large statue of Moses sculpted by Michelangelo as part of the tomb of Pope Julius II.
