Fuoripista (Off Track)

You’re in College Scrivere and you’re learning to use a 3D printer? You’re attending Digital storytelling and they’re teaching you to read out loud?

Don’t worry, you didn’t get the wrong room, you’re at a “Fuoripista”!

Fuoripista courses take you to unexpected directions, out of the reassuring world of your College. They help you see further (plus you need to do some hard work too). So, get your backpack on and keep your eyes open!

 

Going Fuoripista isn’t optional. It’s an important part of your studying path and a long-standing landmark of the school. You are going to go off track with your classmates otherwise you might get lost, and you’re also going meet some new people there. So take the chance to chat!

 

Fuoripista courses can be Sources, Horizons or Landmarks.

In short, a Source is the first class of a single-subject course that you’ll never really do, Horizons are overall views, forward-looking ways to learn how to turn a simple good idea into a successful itinerary and Landmarks are classes where you get direction to find out about new paths and how to reach to the top.
