Università di Stanford, 450 Serra Mall, Stanford, CA 94305, Stati Uniti
Stanford University is regularly cited as one of the most prestigious universities in the world, but is just as well known for its stunning campus. The university’s “architectural crown jewel”, the Stanford Memorial Church, was built during the American Renaissance and is decorated with colourful mosaics. The use of colour and stained glass was inspired by the churches of Venice, particularly St Mark’s Basilica. Surrounding the buildings are acres and acres of gardens, attractive flowerbeds and tree-lined avenues.
