Padri Barnabiti’s Zaccaria Institute in Milan has a history of educational excellence since the beginning of the 17th century.

It includes a Primary School, a Secondary School and a High School focusing on the Humanities, Science and Languages.

Appropriate wireless connectivity is essential to take full advantage of those equipments.
