Since the end of September the exhibition - after bing featured at Parco Ciani and on USI Lugano campus - has been showcased at Liceo Cantonale Locarno, with positive feedback. USI supported the exhibition in order to promote the discussion on the respect of Human Rights in the territory and to raise awareness among the general public.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 10 December 1948 in Paris: 70 years later, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights underlined this important anniversary with a global campaign and a series of posters on the subject, designed by internationally renowned artists who illustrate the call STAND UP FOR HUMAN RIGHTS - Defend Human Rights.

Since Università della Svizzera italiana considers these themes to be as topical and important as ever, further chances to visit this exhibition were arranged in different locations, to provide a valuable opportunity for reflection for students and the general public.
