The “Tutta un’altra musica” project was born to bring educational and light-hearted moments to children in the hospital. The initiative involved more than 228 young patients in music workshops, where they could try out different symphonic instruments and create meaningful musical pieces guided by professional musicians. Can you picture it? A real small orchestra of young musicians in robes, pajamas, bad-aids or medical bands having fun and learning about music.
The annual “Foscolo top-up fellowship” competition was launched to attract and retain in Europe the best young economists working abroad. It was made available to the economics and finance departments in universities located in the countries in which the UniCredit Group operates. The award to the winning department was an annual grant of 50 thousand euros as a supplement added to the budget dedicated to the selected students. In 2020, one of the 3 three-year fellowships, won by the EIEF Institute in Rome, was awarded to Barbara Biasi, PhD in Economics at Stanford University and former winner of the Crivelli Fellowship.
