It will still be a vibonese to drive the “Fausto Torrefranca” Conservatory of Music: Vittorino Nasoborn in Vibo Valentia, where he studied, grew up, before moving to Rome, he was in fact re-elected director of the headquarters of the capital of via Corsea for the three-year period 2023 – 2026.

The concession of the former Jesuit Convent is the most important goal

The “former” Bruzzano “school

Having obtained the premises of the former Bruzzano school is certainly the most important goal achieved by Vittorino Naso since he was at the helm of the “Torrefranca”. The municipal council – we remind you – at the end of 2021 gave the green light to the concession on free loan for use, for a renewable period of ten years, to the Province of the former Jesuit Convent to be used as an annex to the “Fausto Torrefranca” Conservatory of Music. The executive chaired by the mayor Maria Limardo has therefore approved the convention for the loan for use regulating the relations between the two entities. The “tour” of the former “Bruzzano” from the Municipality to the Province (whose president Salvatore Solano will then sign the agreement at the end of last March) and from the latter to the Conservatory, was necessary as Palazzo ex Enel is the competent body for the management of high school and university institutes.

The decision of the Municipality to allocate the former “Bruzzano” school to the Conservatory was dictated by a series of factors: first of all – we read in the resolution passed by the executive – the “Torrefranca” «is the only public university institution in the area and its presence triggers significant relapses not only on the cultural and artistic level, but also on the economic and social one due to the presence in the city of many students from outside the region and also from abroad ». Furthermore, “the use of the former Jesuit Convent, owned by the municipality, would give the Conservatory the possibility, given its contiguity with the headquarters in Via Corsea, to have a unique location of great prestige with classrooms suitable for the purpose, which is one, if not the most important, requirement for the attribution, by the Ministry of University and Research, of the research doctorates assigned to the Afam Institutions, which would attract in our city additional students from all over Italy, and also the authorization for new two-year degree programs“. It’s still. «The use of the structure by the Province for the Conservatory of Music will allow the Municipality of Vibo Valentia to save on management costs, otherwise essential to avoid further deterioration of the property“.
