It was the president of the Federazione Nazionale dei Cavalieri del Lavoro Enrico Pozzani who first had the idea of setting up the University College Lamaro–Pozzani. This idea was put into practice thanks to the generosity of Antonio Lamaro, who donated the land and the building.
The College, which is situated in Rome, is home to 70 students from all over Italy. These young people are selected each year after a series of demanding tests and interviews and for their application to be considered, they must have an average of 8/10 from the exams of their first four years of secondary school

Our aim is to contribute to the education of young people capable of reaching positions of responsibility in today’s society. This is achieved by fostering curiosity and a critical approach in a variety of learning experiences.
Our students, who are enrolled in different faculties and degree courses of Rome’s universities, benefit from all the cultural and logistic services that the College provides. As well as attending obligatory internal courses (Business Culture and languages) their other commitments include meetings with personalities from the world of politics and culture, study groups and trips abroad. There are also research projects and seminars on specific themes, the results of which are published in journals and monographs.
Scholarships to the College are awarded annually and students must demonstrate attendance of all courses outlined in the internal programme and pass the relative exams, take an active part in the life and activities of the College and attain a suitably high standard in their university exams in order for it to be renewed.
Each year the students have to renew their scholarship at the College, demonstrating that they have followed all the courses outlined in the internal programme and have passed the relative exams. They must also have taken an active part in the life and the activities of the College, and have maintained a high average mark in their university exams.
The programmes and the activities of the College are supervised by the Committee for the Educational Programs of the Federazione Nazionale dei Cavalieri del Lavoro.
The Director of the College is Professor Stefano Semplici.
Our results confirm that the Cavalieri del Lavoro have been right to focus on merit. Of the over 450 students to have graduated from the College, all have entered the workplace with ease, many reaching positions of particular prestige.
Most of our graduates have gone into business but a significant number have entered the civil service, set up in private practice or stayed on at the universities to teach or do research.
