Several additional courses taught by visiting professors (including UNESCO-ICTP faculty) are also available to students each year. The Allievi also interact with the faculty, fellows and researchers of the Collegio. Moreover, the Allievi have full access to the Collegio's facilities and scientific activities, such as seminars, open lectures, master's and doctoral courses.
