What do university teachers of the Università di Torino do when they aren’t teaching?
The curiosity to find out the life of teachers after lessons in classrooms or laboratories, with research, passions and ideas led FRidA – il Forum della Ricerca di Ateneo to come up with a new radio format “Fantastic Teachers and Where to Find Them”, anchored by Giulia Alice Fornaro and Fabiano Catania, in collaboration with Radio 110.
For the first time the passions of teachers besides professorship.
Stories of new projects, successes, challenges and difficulties, personally told by researchers of the Università degli Studi di Torino.
Two guests for the first episode of the new format
The first episode, recorded live at the Salone del Gusto-Terra Madre last 24th September, had two guests. Two “fantastic teachers” decided to take part in the program. The first one was Daniela Fargione, teacher of Anglo-american Literature. Since she found out she is coeliac she has become an expert of “environmental humanism”, because also literature and art can help in becoming aware of environmental problems. The second guest was Stefano Bechis, researcher at the Dipartimento Interateneo di Scienze del Territorio. He wanted to become a musician, but students protests against nuclear power led him to work with solar energy… in Africa!
