What challenges is the university called to win in the digital age? If the future calls us to answer on the environment, technology, the economy, geopolitics and democracy, what kind of educational model may be best prepared to face them? Is it possible to rediscover the humanistic vocation of the university, and put it at the center of the relationship between people and knowledge? Juan Carlos De Martin, professor of the Turin Polytechnic and co-director of the NEXA Center, discussed these themes in his book Università futura (Codice Edizioni, 2017).
