Erasmus Photo Contest 2019

The University of Catania launches the 2018/2019 edition of the #CataniaMeetsErasmus Photo Contest. The theme for this year is “Sharing the CiTy”: we would love to see Catania through your eyes!


The Photo Contest 2019 celebrates the last (2018) European Year of Cultural Heritage to encourage our international students to discover and engage with Catania's cultural heritage (tangible, intangible and digital) and natural landscapes and its connections with the Unesco Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto (South-Eastern Sicily). Discovering and sharing our European cultural heritage, as a universal value for individuals, communities and societies, will reinforce our sense of belonging to a common European space and our identities as European citizens in everyday life.
