Starting from 26 October, the new bus line 76N is available to students: it will connect the underground stop Paradiso to the Department of Agricultural
Science and Veterinary Medicine. The bus will be active only on week days, from Monday to Friday, from 7.30 a.m. to 10.30 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. It will pass every 15 minutes and will be mostly for students who have to reach the University from the underground stop, although any citizen can use this bus.

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.

Research Centre for Women and Gender Studies (CIRSDe) recently published a new guide about Università di Torino programmes with a gender-based
perspective. It is an interesting a helpful tool for any UniTo student to approach and explore gender studies. In fact, it offers an overview on the active courses in the various Departments of Turin that have focused on a gender-based perspective.

There are few Gender Studies courses in Italian universities and we advise you visit CIRSDe website to find out more about Doctorates, master’s degrees or
advanced courses on this subject. In the past few years in Italy, the need to address not only issues related to the disparity between men and women but
also the LGBTQ+ community has arisen. We hope that in next year’s guide we will be able to put more Gender Studies courses, so that the academic world in Turin will be even more inclusive.

 

In accordance with the legislative decree “Rilancio”, subparagraph 1-bis of article 29, students from outside of Turin will receive a rent refund. 20 million euros
have been allocated for the fund for the locations. What do we know today regarding students' access to this fund?
 the access is limited to those whose ISEE does not exceed € 15,000
 the access is restricted when in conjunction with other aids to the studies
 students are entitled to the refund for the entire period of the State of
Emergency during the COVID-19 pandemic
 the calculation of the refund will be based on the contracts signed by
students whose place of residence is different than the one on the
contract
For more details about the methods and timelines to access the fund, it is necessary to wait for a ministerial decree that will be issued by 17 October. So,
just a little more patience.
