That seems like a lot of school for a city with a population of ~10,000.

Considering the kids will all be zooming their classes from their bedrooms it may be overkill.

I'd assume it's a regional school not just for Verona.
The photographs were taken by john Hart for the State Journal.

If I learned anything from 80s movies, these giant campuses can only lead to lead to alienation and punk rock.

Seems to me the enclosed Roman Colosseum, two pools, barbells and stationary bikes is an over reaction to a few athletes excelling in their chosen field.
That's fine except everyone pays no small price for it.
Goes along with the national preoccupation with anything to distract from doing something useful.
