The history of this boarding school actually already begins in the Middle Ages. One thousand years ago a castle was built on this hill somewhere in Italy. From the top you're able to overlook the whole area. It's said that the fortress rested here for 500 years until it was destroyed around 1550. Instead a monastery was constructed on the hill. But in the middle of the 19th century it had to make way for this college. For around 150 years children have been taught here. During this time several thousand students were educated in this facility. Back then the good reputation preceded the college. But today apparently only a small number of people remembers this site. Because meanwhile it was left to rot and the shine is lost.
