The Turin University
The Turin University is located in the city of Turin, the capital of the Piedmont region, in the North West of Italy. Founded in 1404, it is one of the oldest universities in Europe, and continues to play an important role in research and training.
The Campus Luigi Einaudi is situated along the banks of the Dora River, not far from the famous Mole Antonelliana, symbol of the city.
Designed by Norman Foster, one of the most important contemporary architects, it has been included among the 10 most spectacular university buildings in the world. The CLE (Campus Luigi Einaudi) hosts the headquarters of the Schools of Laws, Politics and Economics and related departments.
The campus has modern classrooms, computer and language labs, study rooms and reading rooms, a cafeteria and spacious common areas, with a university residence and a canteen in the immediate vicinity. The Campus is home for conferences, exhibitions and national and international meetings; it is made up of seven buildings – surrounded by green spaces overlooking a large internal circular square, and has been designed with particular attention to energy savings issues.
