38th Opening Ceremony of the Academic Year | 2019/2020

The Opening Ceremony of the 2019/2020 Academic Year - attended by the Italian Minister for Equal Opportunities and the Family Elena Bonetti - was held on 9 December 2019, in the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Medicine.

This year we celebrate the first 50 years of the University of Brescia, whose history, officially started in 1982/83, has its roots in 1969 when, on 3 December of the Academic Year 1969/1970, the Rector of the Polytechnic University of Milan Prof. Francesco Carassa, inaugurated the first classes.

After the academic procession and the speech by the Students’ Representative Diego Bruno Vollaro and the one by the Admistrative Staff’s Representative Giuseppe David, it was time for the Rector Maurizio Tira’s inaugural speech and the intervention of the Minister Bonetti.

The theme of this year was the environmental sustainability, which was discussed by the Full Professor of Management Prof. Antonio Tencati in his Lectio Magistralis “Sustainability, enterprise and value: a new relationship for new challenges” and by the President of the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change Prof. Antonio Navarra in his closing speech “The climate challenge”.
