The European Museum of Students is the result of over ten years of work and is an original and valuable addition to the museums of the University of Bologna, the oldest university in Europe and one of the earliest student universities in the world. It is thus fi tting that the University of Bologna should take steps to promote the knowledge and study of the student world with a centre for the documentation of student history, hence a location going beyond the function of an ordinary museum.
