With Law 240/2010, the so-called Gelmini Law, universities underwent a general organisational reorganisation.

Among the main innovations imposed by the reform, and contained in Article 2, there is the obligation to adopt a statute that meets the need for greater 'simplification, efficiency, effectiveness, transparency of administrative activity and accessibility of information relating to the university'.

From an organisational point of view, the composition, duration, and functions of the governing bodies (Rector, Academic Senate, Board of Directors, Board of Auditors, Evaluation Board, General Director) have been redefined.

In terms of teaching, the reform has assigned a central role to the departments, structures designed to ensure the organic and integrated exercise of teaching, research, and territorial service activities. Endowed with management, administrative and regulatory autonomy, they may organise themselves with common administrative structures, either for disciplinary affinity or for logistical reasons.

The six faculties are the connecting structures between several departments, grouped by homogeneous disciplinary areas. They perform coordination and management support functions for the departments, courses of study and specialisation schools. They also have the task of rationalising teaching activities and managing common services.

Supporting the teaching and research activities are the service centres, organisational structures that produce, deliver, and manage services and laboratories.
