The renowned international education services provider Chatsworth Schools and Marina Development Corporation (MDC), a pioneer in urban regeneration focused on regions associated with tourism ports and leisure, have announced a ground-breaking partnership. With this collaboration, an international school will soon be established on the Borgo del Forte Campus in Ventimiglia. This initiative is in line with MDC’s larger goal of reviving the Ventimiglia waterfront.
A key component of the area’s revitalization, this international school is expected to start in September 2026, subject to clearance from the Municipal Council. It will be a part of the renovation of the old Campasso railway yard, which will turn a 42,000 square metre area into a flourishing centre for community and education. The school is positioned as a distinctive educational destination for students from the neighbouring regions, including Genoa, Monaco and Nice, because of its strategic position behind the naturalistic area at the mouth of the Nervia River.
Up to 800 students between the ages of 3 and 18 can be accommodated on the campus in a multi-story building that is surrounded by a public park. In addition to meeting educational demands, the facility will provide substantial sporting facilities that are open to the public, such as a contemporary gym, an indoor pool and a multipurpose space for different activities.
In addition, a 1,600 square metre former railway warehouse will be restored as part of the project and turned into a multipurpose conference centre with offices, an exhibition area and a conference hall that overlooks a sizable green park. The campus’s residential options will be improved by the renovation of the former guest homes into student housing.
As a division of Chatsworth Schools, Blenheim Schools will supervise the curriculum and classrooms, coordinate school events, and work with the Municipality of Ventimiglia to help the school become more integrated into the neighbourhood.
Ventimiglia locals will gain special access to scholarships, reduced costs, and reasonable prices for sporting facilities. As a part of the Chatsworth Schools’ global network, Ventimiglia students will have access to a variety of global experiences and exposure at various locations, drawing in international students and raising Ventimiglia’s profile internationally.
The CEO of MDC, Giuseppe Noto, has voiced his enthusiasm for the project’s ability to encourage employment, social and economic growth in Ventimiglia. The realisation of the project is subject to the acceptance of the required urban planning variant by the Municipal Council.
The 200 million euro “Marina di Ventimiglia” urban revitalization project, which aims to create a new tourist destination with Italian charm and worldwide appeal, revolves around this international school.
The establishment of the International School in Ventimiglia, spearheaded by Marina Development Corporation and Chatsworth Schools, is poised to significantly enhance the allure of the local real estate market. This visionary project is expected to attract families and professionals from around the globe, seeking quality education for their children in a region renowned for its beauty and cultural richness. The influx of international residents will likely increase the demand for high-quality residential properties, presenting a unique opportunity for potential investors and homeowners.
