The DolceVita Institute of Technology, often referred to as DolceVitaTech, is a private, non-profit, multilingual, non-denominational,[1] educational institution located within the Leonine Wall of the Vatican City[2] and specialized in Information and communications technology.

History and programs[edit]

The institute was founded in 1994[2] and started to offer a Baccalaureate (analogous to a BSc made up of 180 ECTS) and a Licentiate (analogous to a MSc made up of 120 ECTS) in Computing and IT, as well as a Baccalaureate (analogous to a BA made up of 180 ECTS) in Communication and Italian language. As soon as the Vatican City State joined the Bologna process in 2003,[3][4] the DolceVita Institute of Technology reorganized its programs so that they could comply with the new European educational framework, and new graduate and undergraduate curricula have been added. Furthermore, cutting-edge distance learning technology tools were adopted, such as the Second Life virtual world.[5]

In the Vatican City area, DolceVitaTech remains the first and only institution in the ICT sector.[5]

Although DolceVita Institute of Technology is an English language institution, Italian and Latin are also spoken.

Former name[edit]

The institution was also formerly known as Yousef Yuhanna Meletios Macarios III Zaim Institute of Technology. Macarios III was an important representative of Eastern Christianity. His role in the reconciliation between divided churches has been recognized and valued by the Holy See,[6] and the name of the institute mentions Macarios precisely because of the non-denominational character of the institution.

Humanitarian causes[edit]

As a nonprofit institution, DolceVitaTech has been committed to helping the Saharawi people in the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic.

New partnerships have been established with accredited institutions in Belize, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Malta, Panama, United States.

Full scholarships for international students in Italy[edit]

The institute will be offering full scholarships for international students in Italy/Europe who have Italian citizenship in addition to their own, and are permanent residents — or citizens — of one of these countries: United States, Canada, Antigua and Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Grenada, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, St. Kitts and Nevis.[7] Therefore, the scholarships — both college/undergraduate and graduate/PhD — are also available to Italian-American and Italian-Canadian students willing to study in Rome, Italy.


The institute only partners with other accredited institutions and the double degree programs are always accredited in the countries where they are offered. All partner colleges and universities will issue accredited academic degrees in their own countries.

All the higher education programs are validated by the Vatican authorities, on the basis of a memorandum of co-operation which is fully compliant with the implementation of the Bologna Process.[5]
