On May 6, 2015, UC Berkeley's ambitious plan to establish a Center for the Study of Ancient Italy was officially launched with a reception at the Italian Cultural Institute in San Francisco. It was a well attended event with supporting remarks from Italy's own representative, Mauro Battocchi, the Consul General of Italy.

Overseen by the Graduate Group in Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology, the Center will embrace an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research.

It will organize conferences, sponsor lectures, workshops and exhibitions dedicated to the ancient art, history and archaeology of Italy.
