ITIS "Galileo Galilei" was built in 1962, when it began as a smaller section of the ITIS in Cremona - a city quite near Crema, Italy.


Later, three more courses were introduced: the first two years of the course (13-15 years old) are the same for everybody, but students from 15 to 18 years old have been having the possibility to choose between courses focusing on mechanics, chemistry or computer science
