Restructuring starts at the USI Litorale
25 February 2019
The renovation of the spaces at the Maghetti district for the new USI "Il Litorale" has started, on Thursday, 21 February. The new initiative of Università della Svizzera italiana will bring the university, students, researchers, and lecturers, closer to the regional entrepreneurial context - companies, startups, investors - and, more generally, to citisens interested in USI, thus encouraging the so-called 'territorial contamination' between academia and society.
The opening of the structure, located on the second floor of the building in Piazza San Rocco 3, is scheduled for the beginning of April with a public event. The rennovation project will develop in three phases: (1) preparation of the premises for the installation of the new electrical wiring and IT systems; (2) painting and adaptation to the needs of future users; (3) installation and furnishing.
