For more than 20 years, students and faculty traveled to Virginia Tech’s historic Villa Maderni in the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino, Switzerland, to study at the Center for European Studies and Architecture.
In 2014, following a renovation and expansion to improve the facilities and increase residential and academic space, the facility was renamed the Steger Center for International Scholarship. Now, the center’s library will bear the names of two people who were instrumental in its founding and early leadership.
The Virginia Tech Board of Visitors approved the naming in a resolution stating, “that in acknowledgement of the service and generosity of Olivio and Lucy Ferrari and in recognition of past and future benefits to the university, the library of the Steger Center for International Scholarship will be known as the Olivio and Lucy Ferrari Library.”
