Porte Aperte Alliance Française

Saturday 15th September 2018, Turin will be talking French! At the Alliance Française of Turin is scheduled an open day: a full day speaking French in order to discover all the activities of Alliance, from courses of teaching and certifications in French for adults, children and teenagers, to cultural events, proposed in collaboration with different organizations: from big institutions to little associations. The open house day , which will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Via Saluzzo 60, offers a rich program of free entry activities for people of all ages. During the day there will also be the opening of the exhibition Asterix et La Transitalique, on the creation and realization of the last comics album of the series created by lbert Uderzo and René Goscinny, about a travel to Italy.

Program of the day

9.00 – 17.00:  meeting with educational heads for free French level tests, personalized advice and guidance on the wide range of French courses and ateliers for adults, children and teenagers and enrolment with the promotion Riciclo&Risparmio

10.00 – 12.00:  workshop for people of all ages with the illustrator Cecilia Campironi:  A chaque pied sa chaussure/every foot should meet its shoe based on the book of the same title published by  Editions Cambourakis: it is a funny role game in which every participant can tell their own story through the invention of a pair of shoes. This is also a playful occasion to get children and adults closer to the French language through creativity.

10.30 – 11.30 e 15.30 – 16.30:  free trial French class, beginner level. The first 20 people enrolled in the A1 course will be given one textbook for free.

  • Franca Bruera, Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici (department of classical studies) at the Università di Torino, for the presentation of the events organised for the centenary of the death of Guillaume Apollinaire: an international conference, an exhibition at the GAM, a show at the Teatro Gobetti / Teatro Stabile di Torino;

100 years after the death of Apollinaire

9th November 1918 the French great poet, playwright and writer Apollinaire died. The Alliance, together with the Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici of the University of Turin, the “Centre for Modern European Literature” of the Kent University (UK), and the department of “Lettres modernes” of the Paris Nanterre University, organises some initiatives to illustrate the experiences of the first historic avant-gardes in Paris during the First World War.

There will be three events:

  • An international conference at the Rettorato dell’Università degli Studi di Torino with the title Métamorphoses d’Apollinaire- Metamorfosi di Apollinaire. The academic rendezvous, which will take place Monday 22nd and Tuesday 23rd October 2018 in the Sala Principe d’Acaja del Rettorato, wants to analyse and compare how the work of Apollinaire was accepted during his life and in the decades that followed, till today. How did the pseudonymity, the faces and the masks that the poet wore encourage an acceptance made of evolution, continuity, breakings, metamorphosis and transformations? These questions will inspire the conference Métamorphoses d’Apollinaire – Metamorfosi di Apollinaire, which will involve scholars from national and international research centers. The person to refer to about the event is Franca Bruera of the Dipartimento di Studi Umanistici of the Università di Torino.
  • An exhibition at the GAM with the title Apollinaire e le avanguardie europee, in the Wunderkammer of the Galleria d’Arte Moderna of Turin. You can visit it from 4:30 p.m. of Monday 22nd October 2018.
  • A show at the Teatro Gobetti /Teatro Stabile di Torino. The pièce, Les Mamelles de Tirésias of the playwright Apollinaire, will take place Monday 22nd October, at 7:30 p.m. at the Teatro Gobetti in Via Rossini 8. The show will be in French with Italian subtitles.

At Palazzo degli Istituti Anatomici in corso Massimo D’Azeglio, 52, which houses the Museo Lombroso, di Anatomia e della Frutta, researchers will present the results they obtained and future aspirations of studies carried out until now. During the conference, Turin’s science history will be remembered, as well as its main representants: Carlo Giacomini, Giuseppe Levi and Rita Levi Montalcini. New methods of multidisciplinary analysis, between Neuroscience and Psychology, will also be examined: from non-invasive brain stimulation, to the study of brain mechanisms of traumatic memories, and the subject of Neurodegeneration.

Torino Pride

Tomorrow, Friday June 15, 2018 at 5.30 pm, in the Corte Interrata of the Politecnico di Torino (Room 8I), there will be a talk on “Il patrocinio al Torino Pride e il ruolo dell’Università nella lotta alle discriminazioni” (“sponsoring Torino Pride and the role of University in the fight against discrimination”).

Almost 50 years after the beginning of the fight for the recognition of fundamental rights, the LGBTTQI* (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, etc.) community still has too many unsatisfied and unheard demands. The community is trying to call attention on the dark and too often “slow” times we are living, concerning discrimination, violence and protecting rights.

The talk will analyse the role universities must play in the fight against discrimination, in a time marked by reactionary attitudes and exclusion of diversity. That’s why, along with the full participation of the University of Turin and of the Politecnico to the big party for the rights of the community – Torino Pride 2018 on Saturday, June 16 – there will be an area of discussion and analysis of LGBTQI topics in a particular setting: university.
