Frida, ricerca

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!

To listen to their stories on FridA:

Episodio 1 – Sul filo della sostenibilità tra letteratura e cooperazione

Stay tuned… every Friday a new episode!

The first event of “Artissima Experimental Academy” will take place in the fair from 1st to 4th November 2018 with the project DAF Struttura.

DAF Struttura is a free and experimental school, an environment full of lights and sounds, designed and built by Jan St. Werner, composer and co-founder, in 1993, of the electronic music group Mouse On Mars, in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg, where he teaches Interactive Media / Dynamic Acoustic Research. DAF Struttura, run by Zasha Colah, will be a stage, a sound performance, a space of work, the right place for intellectual thoughts, an archive, a radio station and a gallery and it will host international speakers, researchers, artists, and, above all, 25 students.

This traveling school-facility, modular and experimental and made of corrugated cardboard, will travel on the road till Turin and will be built again at Artissima by the students of the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg. Together with Jan St. Werner there will be two others teachers, Yael Solomonowitz and Marc Matter. There will also be some robotic and light installations, created by Moritz Simon Geist e Matthias Singer.

The teachers and artists collective will explore idiosyncratic methods of production, examine the basic principles of the acusmatic music and of the experimental research and invent new strategies for the presentation and the perception of the sound.

Jan St Werner is an artist and compositor of electronic music in Berlin. Better known as part of his electronic duo Mouse on Mars, Werner has also begun a career as a soloist, publishing, among others, Lithops, Noisemashinetapes e Neuter River. In 2013, St. Werner published Blaze Color Burn, the first of a series of experimental recordings with Fiepblatter and the Thrill Jockey Records, in Chicago. He cooperated with orchestras and groups such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Musikfabrik Köln, the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop and the Ensemble neoN of Norway. During the 2000s, he has been artistic director of the Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM) in Amsterdam. Werner has also been guest lecturer at the department ACT of Arts Culture and Technology of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. He is currently teacher of Interactive Media/ Dynamic Acoustic Research at the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg and he has directed a new field of studies on the future of record production for the New York University of Berlin.

The master in management of the Business School ESCP Europe is on top of the Financial Time ranking and it is once again first in Italy.


The program, which ranks 5th globally, stands out for the international character of the study experience, quick employment, gender equality and goals reached in terms of employment and average salary.


The Master in Management of the international Business School ESCP Europe is also in 2018 the best course of study in Italy and it ranks fifth globally, according to the annual Financial Times ranking. The ranking takes into account the management training before employment. See here the whole ranking.

With its six campuses in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw, the school consolidates its position at the top of the ranking, which is the international baseline parameter for the choice of enrolment in the masters of the 100 more important business schools in Europe, Asia and Australia, which have been classified following 23 criteria, divided into four big areas.

The MIM of ESCP Europe stands out for the international character of the study experience, quick employment, gender equality and goals reached in terms of employment and average salary, equal to 69.865 euros (81.282 dollars), ranking higher than the Bocconi University (2nd in Italy, 6th in the world), the LUISS Guido Carli (3rd in Italy, 89th in the world) and the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano (4th in Italy, 95th in the world). 98% of students who attended the master find employment within only three months from graduation. The ranking considers the multiculturalism of the school and the program, the quality of teachers, the salary of the students who have already graduated and the career development within three years from getting the Master’s degree.

In addition the MIM of ESCP Europe in among the best worldwide as regards the point “international course experience”, how much is the Master exposed internationally and it is given by: student composition (86% international students) and teachers (78%), the structure of education, the range of post-program job opportunities for the students.

“ESCP Europe’s mission is to inspire and educate the leaders of tomorrow and the results of the ranking prove that we are achieving what we wanted. Year after year we move up the table of the Financial Times, being first in Italy for the programs of international degree – said Francesco Rattalino, director of ESCP Europe Torino Campus-. One of our strengths is the international character of teachers, students, but also of the companies we work with, where the students will work.”

Having studied abroad is one of the reasons of the success of graduates of ESCP Europe in employment and their satisfaction about the program.

“This ranking shows how one of the fundamental values of ESCP Europe is “diversity”, both cultural and in gender – said Francesco Profumo, president of ESCP Europe Torino Campus- . in the current society too little women fulfill leadership roles and one of our goals is to educate manager women, who will close the gender gap. In the Master in Management we even saw an overtaking. In fact, of the 892 students, a good 52% are women. This is an important signal of change, which will bring positive effect in the business world in a near future.”

“We are happy of this position: it reflects our commitment in educating the next international managers – adds Frank Bournois, Dean of ESCP Europe-. Timing couldn’t be better to celebrate our 200° anniversary. In fact, from January 2019, in all the campuses ESCP Europe many events will take place and they will involve the wide international community of the school.”

“ESCP Europe goes on ranking in the first positions thanks to assessment criteria that are crucial in our global strategy – concludes Léon Laulusa, Dean for Academic and International Affairs di ESCP Europe –. “this international recognition strengthens the development policy created by the school in order to educate a new generation of international leaders throughout the combination of innovative pedagogy, cross-campus educational programs and teachers who are extremely active in the research”.

I have worked for 3 years in the M&A team in investment banks, I manage exceptional financial operations such as corporate mergers and  takeovers, exchange quotations and other kinds of funding. ESCP Europe allowed me to start my career in a very practical way: it is a great bridge between the desk in school and the one in the office. Companies appreciate dynamism and adaptability of the ESCP Europe students and their constant will to face challenges and excel.”

Simone Santagiuliana

Equity analyst – Tikehau Investment Management, Paris

“I think there aren’t many people in Italy who finish university having done at least 3 apprenticeships and who know 3 different languages. Of course this is a great business card for a student who is seeking employment for the first time. I have chosen to live in Paris, according to the kind of job I have and the lifestyle here, which I think is well-balanced between the Mediterranean culture and the international atmosphere. I’m interested in investments and markets and here there are many small and medium companies, where competent and successful people work. It is a great environment where to learn the job and grow.”

Annabel Morgan

“The opportunity of living in three different countries and work at the same time was exciting and it allowed me develop managing competences in an international framework. Now I am a management consultant and my job is to help my clients in solving difficult problems, such as implementing profitability of the company, rearrange it optimally and be successful in a new market.”


ESCP Europe’s history

ESCP Europe was opened in Paris in 1819. It was the first Business School in the world and nowadays it is one of the most renowned internationally and constantly very high in the ranking of Business Schools.

With six campuses in Europe – in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Turin and Warsaw –, it prepares students for an international career in management. On the European level, it welcomes every year about 4600 students and 5000 managers, from 100 different countries, with complete programs in General management and Master’s degrees.

politecnico di torino
Bronze medal for the Politecnico di Torino

94% is the percentage of the students who find employment within an year after graduation from the Politecnico di Torino. This data was confirmed by the new world Graduate Employability Rankings 2019, by the prestigious British QS Institute. The Politecnico di Torino is once again on the international podium of universities which guarantee job prospects to its graduates.

The ability to ensure that its graduates will find an occupation has always been one of the qualities of the Politecnico di Torino. Yesterday, 11th September 2018, the Politecnico was awarded the bronze medal, ranking third in the world (not far from the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO University) and the Politecnico di Milano) according to the Graduate Employment Rate, one of the five indicators of the ranking on the employment of graduates, which this year has analysed 500 universities worldwide.

The criteria followed are: the employer reputation, partnerships with companies, the success of graduates in their careers, the presence of companies in the campus and the rate of employment of graduates within an year from graduation. It’s thanks to this last indicator, calculated as the proportion between the percentage of employment of graduates and the average of the Italian universities taken into account, that the Politecnico di Torino ranked third worldwide.

The Politecnico was also good for another indicator, according to which the university ranks second in Italy: the employer reputation, which assesses the reputation that the university has according to the employer. All in all, taking into account the five indicators and the importance they have in the ranking, the Politecnico of Torino is once again between the 121st and the 130th position and so it is in the first quartile of the best universities in the world.

“These results, which have not changed in the percentage of students employed compared to the ones of last year, show how the education of our students is still highly regarded in the labor market. The third position in the world awards our policies, which are successful despite the choice of the Politecnico di Torino to serve the country by welcoming a lot of young people and keeping taxes low. Italy, in fact, really needs graduates if it wants to remain an advanced country (as OECD has just reminded us). Thanks to the actions arranged to professionalize degrees and by proposing a didactics more and more focused on the student and enriched by the presence of entrepreneurs and professionals, we can improve even more this already impressive result”, said the rector Guido Saracco.

codice fiscale
A desk for foreign students


From today, September 3rd, to September 21st will be set up the temporary desk for the issue of the fiscal code to foreign students, who are arriving for the new academic year. Thanks to an agreement between the university and the Italian Agency of Revenue (Agenzia delle Entrate), also in 2018 newly enrolled foreign students will be able to integrate in Italy more easily.

In this way, in fact, foreign citizens who arrive in Turin for studying, teaching or research will be able to get the fiscal code straight in Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, at the enrolment office of the Politecnico di Torino, without going to the Italian Agency of Revenue. This is the second year the students have been given this opportunity, thanks to the good results of last year: in 2017, in fact, during 12 days in which the desk was open, 480 people used this service.

Getting a fiscal code is essential for a stay in Italy: not only is it the first step to enrol in university, but it is also useful for other practical aspects such as signing a rental contract, purchase of a SIM card for you telephone and much more.

The temporary desk will be open until 21st September 2018, from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
