Firenze NOW: Strategie per l’accoglienza dei residenti temporanei
22 June 2021 - 17:30
A RoundTable discussion, organised in partnership with the Comune of Florence, to discuss how better to welcome international students to Florence as temporary residents of the city. If the visiting students are more successfully integrated into the city, they will have a better experience, and the city stands to gain more from the presence of these bright young people. This is part of the strategy to rebalance Florence, as it rebuilds from the pandemic into a smarter and more sustainable city, more livable for residents and visitors alike.
