workshop “Promoting happiness and well-being: contexts and instruments”, organized by the Department of Psychology and by Movimento Mezzopieno
and aimed at students and citizens in general.

The workshop will deal with the theme of well-being and happiness starting from a scientific understanding of the constructs and presenting the results
achieved by science, in particular psychology, on this topic. The workshop is for 60 students from undergraduate and postgraduate UniTo faculties (Departments of Psychology; Culture, Politics and Society; Economy and Statistics; Neuroscience; Humanities; Medical Science; Public health science
and Paediatric Science).

Culture and Tourism in the digital era: the challenge for university students from Politecnico and UniTo kicks off.

The 30 students that will participate in the challenge “Culture and Tourism in the digital era” issued by Contamination Lab of Turin with the collaboration of Centro Conservazione e Restauro “La Venaria Reale” will try to answer questions that are very relevant today, such as “How will the digital change the mechanism to valorise identities and artistic heritage? How will the world of exhibitions and history of artworks change? What changes will the actors of the sector undergo?”

The aim is to come to interesting conclusions that combine culture and technology, two fields that are extremely interconnected today and can enhance
the other’s strengths.
Students will come up with solutions to innovate exhibition modalities and restoration to valorise our city’s cultural heritage. They will start from understanding the various factors relative to a specific ecosystem, always keeping in mind the “new normalcy” we are living in that influences our relationship with our cultural heritage. Thus, the aim is to develop idea to answer to the digitalization of culture and its effects.

Polito: cultura e mobilità studentesca

The management board of the Politecnico has decided to renew for the academic year 2018/2019 the initiatives for mobility and culture which enable students of Polito, who are enrolled full-time, to benefit from reductions on the purchase of travel tickets and  the Abbonamento musei (tickets for museums).

In order to benefit from these initiatives for mobility and culture, students will have to send an explicit request following the procedure available on their personal page by 28th December 2018.

Here are some important news of the academic year 2018-2019, about both requirements to benefit from reductions and the procedures that will followed to allocate them.

From 3rd September 2018, the procedure will give – ONLY TO THE ONES WHO HAVE NECESSARY REQUIREMENTS – the possibility to ask for reductions. You can find requirements at the end of this communication. The possibility to ask for the refund of travel tickets will be viewable only after the assignation of the definite contributing level.

 

REFUND OF TRAVEL TICKETS

As concerns travel tickets, it is confirmed the “refund” system: during the online procedure, you will have to attach the scan of the receipt of purchase of the season ticket, in which there have to be biographical data of the student. Season tickets which can be refunded: season tickets purchased from 1st July 2018 to 28th December 2018 which last from 10 to 12 months (tickets lasting a week or a month won’t be accepted) of any transport net, with which you can reach the Politecnico (GTT, Trenitaluian Arriva-Sadem, …).

In contrast to the academic year 2017/2018, also students with a revenue above 30.500 euros can benefit from the reduction, if they have merit requirements, as established in the Legge di Bilancio 2017 and reported in the table below. For everyone, the maximum refund will vary according to the definite contributing level,  according the table which follows.

It will be necessary to fill out the request for reductions (or attest through the procedure that you don’t want to ask for a reduction) by 28/12/2018, so that you have a definite economic level for the academic year 2018/2019.

The refund will be automatically allocated to the student (you cannot decide to leave the sum as credit on the virtual current account or collect it any longer): to fill out the procedure for the request of reductions you will have to select in the section Fees and Reductions of the Online secretary’s office, the mode you want to receive the refund.

ISEE PoliTO Contributing level PoliTO Maximum sum that can be refunded*
till a 30.500 euros 1 – 19 208 euros
from 30.501 euros to 35.500 euros 20 – 24 150 euros
from 35.501 euros to 50.500 euros 25 – 39 100 euros
above 50.500 euros 40 – 75 50 euros

*the value of the season ticket will be refunded if less than or equal the maximum sum; if it is greater, the maximum sum will be refunded.

 

ABBONAMENTO MUSEI (MUSEUM TICKETS)

As concerns the Abbonamento Musei, since in the academic year 2017/2018 many free tickets have been requested and then few have been actually used (with a significant cost for the community), the management board has decided to repeat the initiative for the academic year 2018/2019, but asking the students to demonstrate their real interest with a little sharing to the cost (8 euros.)

The sum has to be given together with the request, following the instructions of the online procedure, as stated before (without deposit, it won’t be possible to conclude the procedure of request).

 

Merit requirements needed to benefit from reductions are established by the Legge di Bilancio 2017, and given below.

REQUIREMENTS TO BENEFIT FROM INITIATIVES FOR MOBILITY AND CULTURE

  • Full-time enrolment in the academic year 2018/2019
  • Enrolment by the normal duration of studies plus a year (till the 4th enrolment for bachelor’s degree, till the 3rd enrolment for master’s degree)

Bruno Fert - fotografia di un interno di tenda di migrante

The exhibition of Bruno FertPercorsi interiori. Fotografie e raccolta di testimonianze”, will be inaugurated today, Thursday, 15th February, at 6pm, at the Alliance française of Turin (Via Saluzzo 60). Fert, French photojournalist, will give a voice to the stories of men and women who are fleeing from poverty and war with a photographic project achieved in collaboration with Medici Senza Frontiere. Fert tells the stories of migrants, takes photos of the interior of the tents and temporary facilities in which they found shelter. They are portraits of men and women, of the places in which they live: dwellings furnished with few things brought to the camps in Greece and France as memories of previous lives.

I decided to meet migrants that cross the Mediterranean to seek refuge in Europe, photographing the interiors of their refuges in villages – or “jungles” – both in France and in Greece, and I collected their stories thanks to the collaboration with MSF”, explains Fert. “Dwell is something that we all have in common. Temporary shelters of migrants reflect their personalities in the same way our houses reflect us. I would like people to relate to this common denominator, to enter the house of someone else observing where he/she lives”.

François Dumont, manager of Communication and Advocacy of MSF, will participate at the inauguration to present the commitment of the organization on the topic of migration and to share the testimonies of the people that were helped thorough the migratory route, from the countries of origin to the European borders. The Group of Turin of Medici Senza Frontiere will also offer the try of the viewers at 360 degrees of the Milionidipassi Experience, experience of the exhausting trips of migrants on land and sea, and of the terrible conditions of the refugee camps.

“ We want to put people in the shoes of people that are forced to hit the road, often putting their own life at risk, with the omen that this experience will involve people in helping vulnerable people that we meet every day even in our cities”, explains François Dumont of MSF.

The exhibition can be visited from 15th to 22nd February with the following timetables:

  • Monday-Thursday: 12am – 8pm
  • Friday: 12am- 6pm
  • Saturday: 9am – 1pm
