Personal comments
When i arrived in Italy, it was to refind my roots. My father is italian so it was a great opportunity to know better my familly. So i improved my vocabulary, speaking with us. With other Erasmus (German, Spanish, Ungarian...), evreybody wants to learn Italian, in order to improve their level. And with their foreign accent, the language became easier, so better to learn and remind it.

The Economics University is the second more popular university in Italy. That means you will improve your knowledge with a good staff, known and appreciated by a lot of company in the world (because of their work experience: FIAT, FERRERO, MARTINI...)

Final comments
You can't stay without travelling. The country is the beauty itself. All the different region has its own language, own culture and way of life. That's the Brainstorming of the culture because you learn from everybody. And one thing that you can e sure to find in Italy, that's the social life, everyone talks to everyone in the street. Even if it's just to find your way, you will probably stay a while to discuss with your new friend, who is asking what you are doing tonight, and if you want to go with him. You know him just for minutes, but it doesn't matter...

Turin by night, you can't miss "the murazzi" this is a place along the PO (one of the 2 Turin's river) where there is all the best night clubs). There is also "the Quadrilatere" place near piazza della reppublica, famous for his Pub where you can take "aperitivo" for less than 10 Euros. 1 drink and free Lunch.
