Our history


The Levantine named Bartolomeo Giustiniani, who came from a well-established, noble Italian family, started the construction of a large building on an area of 4000 square meters in the Bomonti district of Istanbul.



When the construction of the building was finished, Giustiniani donated this building and the land right in front of it to the Salezian Community to receive the education of the children of many Italian families living in Istanbul, which was the capital of the Ottoman Empire at that time.

In the same year, the Salezian Community opened the school and put it into operation under the name of Italian Primary School and Art Vocational School. It served in this way until 1939.



Between 1939-1983, he continued to provide education as a boarding part of Italian Primary School and Italian High School.



In line with the new laws in the field of education, the Salezyen Community in Istanbul established Private Evolution Schools directly affiliated to the Turkish Ministry of National Education. Since this date, Evrim have served as kindergarten, primary, secondary and high school.



An additional building has been built to meet the increasing demand and need of the Private Schools Association.



The then administrator of the school decided to teach Italian, apart from English, which had existed for a long time. In a short time, Italian teaching was approved by the ministry and took its place among the curriculum courses.



With the agreement made with Siena University of Foreigners, one of the most important universities in the world in teaching and spreading the Italian language and culture in 2009, our school became the CILS center in Turkey. CILS is a certification that officially demonstrates the ability to use Italian.

Our current education system covers kindergarten, primary and secondary school. In recent years, the growth of the Bomonti region, the location of our school and the opening of a high school in the coming years are among the goals of our school.

In our historical building, there are administrative offices, secretarial, accounting office, laboratories, painting workshop, music room, social activities room, cafeteria, library, meeting room, classrooms, teacher rooms.
