The Philippine Italian Association has partnered with the Politecnico di Milano to bring to the Philippines “Poli-Tech Stories,” a series of talks on Polytechnic Culture to be given by professors of this prestigious university.
Presented and discussed were stories of Science, Technology, and Creativity, stories of our future, stories of women and men who have distinguished themselves for their contributions in their particular fields.
The program which is currently being developed is created especially for the Filipino audience. We welcome suggestions from PIA University partners, professionals and members.
The journey through the Polytechnic Culture commenced last Wednesday, December 22, 2021, at 5:00 PM Manila Time, via Zoom.
MADE IN POLIMI
Ludovica Cappelletti, a PhD in Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering, will join us virtually to share stories of distinguished women and men, professors and students of the Politecnico, who gave significant contributions in the fields of engineering, architecture and design: Their projects and inventions expanded beyond the city of Milan and have become part of modern day life. Their stories pull together nanotechnologies to space explorations, allowing us to dream of what is technologically possible tomorrow, as mapped out by a University that has always looked to the future.
The title of the first virtual encounter was MADE IN POLIMI, and viewed free of charge as will all talks in this series.
