Gran Torino: Race to the future of mobility

General description

What’s the future of Mobility?

Is it like riding on the back of a super-fast turtle? Hoverboards like Marty McFly? Or perhaps the Jetsons' flying cars?

No, Ladies and gentlemen, the Future of Mobility is the revolutionary crossroad where innovative engineering and sustainable design converge to pave the way for transportation solutions we could only dream of in the past.

Our paths of innovation? Oh, they're as diverse as pizza toppings! Think self-driving vehicles that might ask you about your day, electric aircrafts (no, they don't run on caffeine), snazzy hyperloops, and more. If it's cooler than a polar bear's toenails, it’s probably in our lineup.

Throughout this event, you'll gain deep insights into this exciting topic with lectures from the Politecnico di Torino, company demos (did you know Turin is a hub for automotive and transport innovation?), and hands-on workshops.

But we're offering more than just knowledge: immerse yourself in the rich Italian culture while you're with us!

During your stay, unravel the history and beauty of our city, relish the renowned chocolates, sip on our regional wines in one of the iconic squares of the city center, and delve into the history of the city that saw the birth of Italy (indeed, we were the first capital city of Italy).

On the weekend, we'll explore the scenic outskirts of Turin, offering you a chance to savor the culinary and cultural delights of our beautiful region of Piedmont.

So, why wait? Start your journey into the future and join us in Turin, where innovation and tradition seamlessly blend against the mesmerizing backdrop of the Alps!
