Get the opportunity to enrich your basketball and study abroad experience! Italy is one of the top basketball countries in the world. Thanks to the Rome City Institute, you will have the opportunity to be part of one of the best basketball realities the world has ever seen, which has made tactics and technique its signature. All this will be offered under the guidance of professional and focused staff and in the best basketball facilities in Rome.


The typical basketball season is longer than college, usually starting at the end of September and finishing in May. However, teams rarely play more than one game per week. A longer season provides more opportunities for our student-athletes to showcase their talent and to compete all year long.  


To ensure playing opportunities, our scouts have connections with all the basketball clubs here in Rome. Our job is to match your talent with the right club so you can play and experience the Italian Basketball competition. Your profile will be promoted inside our network before your arrival in Rome so you can start playing right away!


Our training facility is in the heart of Rome and is only a 10-minute commute by foot where our student-athletes live. Equipped with all the necessities our athletes need to assure the best training environment each and every day. Address:  Via di Santa Maria Mediatrice, 24, 00165 Roma RM


Based on tactics and technical skills, the Italian basketball coaching school is well-known because of its sophisticated and detail-oriented style. You probably already know some of the best current Italian players like Danilo Gallinari and Marco Belinelli, both considered NBA veterans, but also some of the best Italian coaches like Ettore Messina and Sergio Scariolo.
