Why have an Italian bank account
Whether you are paying your fees or rent, or receiving some money from home, you are going to need a bank account. It may be that you already have a bank account that can be used in Italy, but in most cases opening an account will be one of the first things you will need to do when arriving in Italy.
If interested in opening a bank account, international students will be guided by the staff in opening a bank account upon arrival in Rome.
Opening a bank account at Unicredit Bank is free of charge, with no monthly service, for students under 30.
