After a year of collaboration between the Centre and the Regional Council of Piedmont, supported by the Piedmont Agency for Investments, Export and Tourism (Ceipiemonte), a Memorandum of Understanding has recently been signed.
The main objective of this collaboration is to help Turin Centre participants become acquainted with the Piedmont region and its institutions as well as some aspects of the region’s history, economy and culture.
During their stay on campus, participants will be invited to visit the Regional Council of Piedmont. They will be hosted at Palazzo Lascaris, where they will be briefed on local topics of interest, such as environment, small enterprises, food and agriculture and also cultural and tourist resources.
A website has been designed and set up to provide participants with supporting information: http://www.piemonteforyou.it. It contains an overview of Piedmont’s history, economy and culture as well as details of public services and the main tourist attractions in the region. It includes a Directory section (with contact details for Piedmont’s main institutions, public bodies, agencies, libraries, universities, research centres, clinics, hospitals, etc.), a News section, a Highlights section on Piedmontese industry, and a section on arts, culture, leisure and tourism.
