It is with great pleasure that we announce the establishment of academic cooperation between ISGAP and Sapienza University of Rome, the largest university in Europe, and one of the most prestigious.

On 25 November 2013, at Sapienza Aula Magna, the launch of ISGAP at Sapienza took place marking the first academic programme of ISGAP Italia and the launching of this new initiative.

The opening ceremony included introductory remarks by Luigi Frati, Dean of Sapienza University, followed by a roundtable discussion on “Antisemitism in Comparative Perspective” with

Charles Asher Small, Director of ISGAP
Marina Caffiero, Coordinator for History, Anthropology, and Religion Department
Riccardo Di Segni, Chief Rabbi of the Jewish Community in Rome
Giovanni Maria Flick, President Emeritus of the Constitutional Court

ISGAP would like to thank the Dean of Sapienza University, Professor Luigi Frati and the Vice Dean of International Relations Professor Antonello Biagini, for their professional and warm welcome that will enable ISGAP to work with the Sapienza community.

This enterprise has been made possible through the exceptional dedication and professional work Dr. Robert Hassan, who will coordinate ISGAP’s activities in Italy. Many scholars have been involved in helping this process. ISGAP is especially grateful to Professor Marina Caffiero, Dr. Serena Di Nepi, Professor Roberto Nicolai, Dr. Antonella Cammisa, and Dr. Giovanni Vianello.
