Trentino Italy

Resident Director

My name is Juri Bottura, and I am one of the founders of Dolomit, BCA partner institution in Italy. After spending a decade studying, volunteering and working across Europe, Latin America and the United States, I decided to move back to my homeland to put my academic expertise and intercultural skills at the service of international students who desire to enhance their knowledge through a learning experience overseas.

It is a pleasure for me to introduce you to my birthplace, Trentino (aka Provincia Autonoma di Trento), an off-the-beaten-path but incredibly rich corner of Italy. This is the ideal location to discover the diversity of Italy in a relaxed and welcoming environment, where charming landscapes and endless outdoor opportunities are coupled with first-class services and facilities.

We teach our curriculum through innovative methods and integrated out-of-class activities. We also take special care of the human experience of students: throughout the program, participants can rely on our staff’s individual attention and enjoy cultural exchanges with locals. As the program’s Resident Director, I will be available on a daily basis for assistance and advising, and ensure a 24/7 emergency service.

I am truly looking forward to welcoming you in my beloved Trentino, and dedicating myself to what I enjoy the most: accompany students in a meaningful and enjoyable journey of intellectual and personal growth.
