TURINator - Rise of the Machines

General description

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

It's a period of civil war: the evil POLYTECHNIC EMPIRE has the control of the city and imposes to all the students its brutal regime. No freedom, no peace, no limoncello...

Only a small group of rebels stands against this cruelty: the knights of BEST TORINO; those warriors are fighting since 1989 to bring fun and liberty to oppressed students!

This year we are ready to strike the Empire with our wonderful course on robotic and automation!

Have you always been wondering how a machine can assemble a car, cut iron with absolute precision, even move into a human body?

You will discover these and many other incredible things about robots, following our lessons and visiting the most technologically advanced industries around Turin.

Turin: first Italian capital, full of elegance and mysteries... land of the greatest wine and chocolate of the whole country!

And in order to restore you after lectures we prepared for you the most amazing parties: the pub-crawling, the cantus-crawling, the Wolf-crawling, the sea-and-mountain-crawling, the crawl-crawling...

Do you REALLY have to think about it???

Join the Rebellion... and may the IMBUTO be with you!
