Universita degli Studi di TorinoThe Universita degli Studi di Torino (UT) was founded over 600 years ago by Pope Benedict XIII, and remains one of Italy’s most ancient and prestigious universities. With over 70,000 students and faculty, and over 120 buildings, UT can truly claim to be a kind of city-within-a-city, promoting culture and generating research, training, and employment. UT has over 12 faculties, and UM exchange students study under the Faculty of Business and Economics.

Torino, surrounded by the Italian Alps, is a beautiful city in the Piedmont region of Italy. The area is well-known for its ancient Catholic monasteries, quaint villages, and world-renown vineyards, all excellent glimpses into the traditional culture of Italy. More recently, Torino is known as the host of the 2006 Winter Olympics, a testament to the breadth of its outdoor recreation opportunities.
Torino’s rich history as the first capital of the Kingdom of Italy, is evident in its ancient architecture and elegant squares. The city, Italy’s fourth largest, more recently has become a hub of contemporary arts and festivals including the Torino Film Festival and the famous Cinema Museum. Torino also attracts food connoisseurs from around the world, as it has chosen to house the first- of- its- kind Slow Food marketplace in an old Fiat car factory. The market adds a local twist to the country’s cultural obsession with food, and provides for incredible eating.
Sitting in Italy’s northwest corner, Torino is in prime exploring position for trips to France, the Riveira, Florence, Milan, and Rome.
