When you first arrive at the CIMBA Asolo campus, you will find yourself looking up a long set of stairs leading into the CIMBA Facilities. The CIMBA building itself was originally built as a convent in 1610 and shares a massive protective wall with the castle, La Rocca, at the top of the mountain.
At the top of the steps, you will come to protective iron-grid doors that open up into a beautiful courtyard. The courtyard contains an old well, a patio table for studying, a garden, and an artistic recreation of Rodin’s “Thinker” made from scrap metal.
Next to Dr. Al’s office on the first floor of the building is a full computer lab (with Wi-Fi). Adjacent to the computer lab, there is an extensive library of business material as well as a small collection of fiction and non-fiction books.
On the other side of the courtyard, CIMBA has two classrooms:
The North classroom
The South Classroom
Upstairs, you will find all 16 rooms each with private bathrooms (including a shower, sink, toilet and bidet). Even though CIMBA students are provided with very private living quarters, they also share some of the more common areas. There is an industrial style kitchen with electric burners, two ovens, two refrigerators, two sinks, and a full supply of pots, pans, dishes and other cooking utensils.
CIMBA students also have full use of a common area with dinning room tables, couches and satellite television with american programming.
The common room and the kitchen both have a view the Italian countryside.
Complete with rolling hills and a stretch of the mountainside in the distance.
