The embryonic project of a Catholic university was founded towards the 1870, supported by representatives of all the Catholic cultural current which acts as a guide. In September 1918, when the First World War was ending, Giuseppe Toniolo, before dying, recommended to Father Agostino Gemelli and his staff to provide the University with the following words: "I do not see the end of the war, but you, when it is finished, do it, do the Università Cattolica".
The foundation and the establishment of faculties
In 1919 Father Agostino Gemelli, Ludovico Necchi, Francesco Olgiati, Armida Barelli, and Ernesto Lombardo founded the Istituto Giuseppe Toniolo di Studi Superiori. On June 24, 1920 the Institute was legally recognized with a decree signed by the Minister of Education, Benedetto Croce; at the same time, the Pope Benedict XV officially recognized the University's ecclesiastical status.
On December 7, 1921, the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore was officially inaugurated with a special mass celebrated by Father Gemelli, in the presence of Achille Ratti, the Cardinal and Archbishop of Milan, who three months later was elected as Pope Pius XI. The first campus was located in the Palazzo del Canonica, in via Sant'Agnese 2. In October 1930 it was moved to the ancient St. Ambrose Monastery, where the main campus remains today. 68 students enrolled in the university's two available programs, philosophy and social sciences, in 1921. As of 2011[update], 14 programs were offered to over 40,000 students distributed over the Milan, Rome, Brescia, Piacenza and Campobasso campuses.
In 1924, following legal recognition from the Italian state allowing the awarding of legally-recognized degrees (the charter of the Università Cattolica was approved by Royal Decree on October 2, 1924, and published on October 31 on the Gazzetta Ufficiale), the Humanities and Law Programs were inaugurated. In 1923 the Istituto Superiore di Magistero was opened, and in 1936 became an independent program, later evolving to become, in 1996, the School of Education Sciences.
In 1926 the Political and Economical Sciences Department became independent from the School of Law and, in 1931, became the School of Political, Economical, and Business Sciences which awarded, until 1947, the university's business degrees as well. In 1936 the School of Political Science became independent. The work and efforts of the Università Cattolica continued throughout the post-war period with new campuses and programs opening. The School of Economics, officially opened in 1947, offered night classes. On October 30, in the presence of Italian President Luigi Einaudi, the first stone of the Piacenza campus was laid, with the official opening of the School of Agriculture Sciences taking place in November 1952.
On August 4, 1958, the official decree for the opening of a Medical School in Rome, which had been advocated by Father Gemelli, was approved. Enormous difficulties had made this long and complicated, and it was not until the end of the 1950s that the Biological Institutes and the university Polyclinic, named after Fr Gemelli were built in Rome. Construction began in 1959; in 1961 Pope John XXIII opened the Medical School, with the first medical doctors graduating in 1967. The school now offers both medical and dentistry programs.
In 1956 the Brescia campus of the Università Cattolica was inaugurated with the opening of the School of Teaching and Education. In 1971, thanks to the initiative of important figures in the mathematical field, the School of Mathematics, Physics, and Natural Sciences was opened. During the 1990s other schools were opened in Milan: the School of Banking, Finance, and Insurance Sciences (1990); the School of Foreign Languages and Literature (today the College of Linguistics) and Foreign Literature (1991); and the School of Psychology (1999). In 1997 in Piacenza the School of Economics, once part of the Milan curriculum, opened independently, and the School of Law in 1995.
In 2000 thirteen Cultural Centres were opened across Italy. In these Centers, through advanced satellite technology, distance-learning courses have been activated in collaboration with the major university campuses. During the 2001-2002 academic year the new School of Sociology, the fourteenth college of the Università Cattolica, was opened in Milan.
In 2012 were established two new schools: the school of Political and Social Science in Milan (born from the union of the existing Faculty of Political Science and Sociology) and the school of Economics and Law in Piacenza-Cremona (born from the union of the Faculty of Economics and Law Piacenza-Cremona).
World War II
During World War II, Ezio Franceschini, who supported the Resistance, organized meetings of the Freedom Volunteer Corps (coordination structure of the partisans) in the university. Towards the end of the war, in 1944, the professor of medieval Latin letters hid a box containing documents and books on the Resistance and FRAMA group (a group founded by Ezio Franceschini, who played an important role in the fight against the Nazis) in the basement of Cattolica. The SS rummaged everywhere in UCSC to find those cards, but buried among the bones of fifty skeletons, dead from an epidemic of plague in the sixteenth century, they remained there and emerged only after the war.
Partially destroyed by bombing in World War II on 15–16 August 1943, the Cattolica was rebuilt, starting development that would take it to the present. During the bombing several classrooms, an administration building, the office building, a cloister by Bramante, the class acts of academic Pius XI, the proud and ancient staircase, the hall of honour and some colleges were destroyed. The reconstruction work began immediately, moved by the words of Agostino Gemelli "rise again more beautiful and bigger than before".
Protests of 1968
The protests of 1968 in Italy began in UCSC of Milan. After the university increased tuition fees, Nov. 15, students decided to occupy the University. The same night the rector Ezio Franceschini expelled the occupants with the help of the police, headed by Commissioner Luigi Calabresi. After three days 30,000 students marched through Milan to the archbishop and the protest spread to every major university in the country. On 21 March, the Cattolica was reoccupied, after being evacuated and closed indefinitely. A few days later, on March 25, there was the so-called "battle of Largo Gemelli": where thousands of students tryied to reopen the university, but were strongly repelled by police. The leader of the protest was Mario Capanna, a student of philosophy at the Università Cattolica.
The Italian cabinet of 2011
In November 2011 the Prime Minister Mario Monti appointed three professors as ministers. The rector Lorenzo Ornaghi was appointed Minister for Heritage and cultural activities; Renato Balduzzi, professor of constitutional law, was appointed minister of health, and Dino Piero Giarda, professor of public economics at the faculty of Economics, became minister for relations with Parliament.
After the appointment of Professor Lorenzo Ornaghi as minister, all the powers and functions belonging to the office of rector were entrusted to the vicar vice chancellor, prof. Franco Anelli, for the term of Ornaghi's office.
