Autobiography of the Italian University is the first group photo of our universities. A journey from the North to the South of Italy, where people fight everyday against the lack of funds, the indifference of media and of governments. These isolated people regularly find themselves in the streets, fighting for their rights.
Deans, professors emeritus, maîtres à penser as well as students are all at the forefront, actively engaged in their own university areas. It is the portrait of a single and large organism that includes contradictions, anomalies, social differences and beliefs in changes.
