Chicago Booth Alumni Weekend in Turin
May 20, 2010: 3:00 PM - May 23, 2010: 3:00 PM
Please join us in Romantic Turin for a pan-European Chicago Booth Reunion where we will catch up and meet Booth alumni, current students, the Italian University of Chicago alumni and their friends. If you have never seen Turin, this is the right time to discover it.
Since the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics, during which the city impressed the world, Turin has been in continuous transformation. Indeed the city has been changing from an industrial capital to a place where innovation and technology exist alongside with vibrant culture and quality of life. Walking around its magnificent monuments and streets at night feels like taking a step back to the Middle Ages. Turin’s baroque heritage, its incredible museums and its technology centre of the Polytechnic of Turin makes it a distinctive attraction for history scholars, tourists, scientists and business people from all over the world. Turin is definitely a unique and historic European city where history, technology, romance, gorgeous wines and food blend together and offer you a fantastic experience!
Please join us to experience all of the above with your friendly tour guides Luca Leone, MBA’06 (EXP-11) and Massimo Chiabotto, MBA’08 (EXP-13) along with the University of Chicago alumni of Italy, who will help you make this the most wonderful weekend of the year for you and your families!
We recommend you make your hotel and travel reservations ASAP. There are direct flights to Turin from most European airports.
We hope to see you, along with family and friends.
