Our students and professors are excited to be back on campus this September. It's been bustling here at San Servolo this month. The Globalization Program kicked off September 6 with 140 students enrolled. Students from Italy, Germany, France, Belgium, UK, Russia, Tel Aviv, USA, Japan and Korea are taking courses in a range of disciplines on themes related to Italy, Global Challenges, Science and Society, History and Memory, and Cultural Heritage.
The academic year began with four Intensive Graduate Activities this September. There is a real sense of (almost) getting back to normal. The PhD Academies and Summer schools brought students, researchers, and professors together in a collaborative environment to experiment with interdisciplinary approaches relevant to their studies and research.
