The doors of EXPO Milan have officially opened last Friday. From today, the website www.expo2015.usi.ch is online: a platform where all members
of our community can look through the programme proposed by USI, register, purchase or request tickets. USI’s three main objectives are as follows: to strengthen the
sense of community, to tackle EXPO’s theme with an approach based on reflection, and offer our thoughts to the Italian speaking part of Switzerland, to seize this opportunity to give USI international visibility through social media. Welcome to #USIEXPO2015.
The language and culture of the Italian speaking region of Switzerland goes to Canton Luzern
awareness among young people from across the Alps on the reality on the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland and at the same time to promote the Italian language and culture on a national level. These are the aims of the initiative +identità (more identity) devised by USI and fostered by the Canton Ticino. A week dedicated to the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland touching every single canton and that landed in the past weeks in Kantonsschule of Sursee (Luzern). Thanks to the high school exchange students of Liceo Lugano 1 the students of Sursee had the chance to deepen their knowledge of their Italian
