Esse Quam Videri

ESSE QUAM VIDDERI, the motto in our badge, is part of our tradition and means “Being, rather than seeming to be”. Esse Quam Videri is found on Cicero´s essay “On Friendship”: “Virtute enim ipsa non tam multi praediti esse quam videri volunt” which means “Few are those who wish to be endowed with virtue rather than to seem so”.
