Cib Unigas is University of Padua’s donor. Our company provided financial support for the restoration of a canvas present in the historic Sala Quaranta, the room that precedes the entrance to the University’s Aula Magna. The works in the room are portraits of illustrious foreign students who have contributed over the centuries to making Padua a place of meeting and exchange of cultures.
The canvas we support to restore, depicts the English statesman Francis Walsingham, who attended the University of Padua in the 16th century.
We chose this historical figure, diplomat for Elizabeth I Tudor, because he has been a man capable of shaping the world with his skills and his knowledge of international politics.
Cib Unigas believes in the value of culture, a prerequisite for strengthening its international vocation and for buliding a better World.
