FuTurin - Imagine the City of Tomorrow
3 April – 10 April 2022
From the industrial revolution of the XIX century, the cities of the world have seen a dramatic increase of population and infrastructures. This growth still hasn’t stopped so the engineers of today have to face the challenge of giving a livable home to the millions of people that live in every metropolitan area.
During the week in Torino, the beautiful first italian capital surrounded by the Alps, we will analyze the problems related to the over-crowded metropolitan areas and look at the examples of innovations that around the world are managing with these problems in order to be able, at the end of the course, to watch critically the city’s context and elaborate concrete solutions through a practical project with one of the leader company in the field of city innovation.
But that’s not all: in the week together you will get fully immersed in Italian culture!
During the week, you will discover all the secrets and mysteries of our city, you will enjoy the typical chocolate and the regional wine in one of the elegant squares in the city center and learn more about the city where Italy was born.
Instead, during the weekend we will take a break in the amazing mountains that surround Torino, where you will have the opportunity to taste the delights that our country, and especially our region, have to offer!
What are you waiting for? Book your flight and come to the city where innovation and tradition mix themselves in a breathtaking bowl created by the Alps!
