The Politecnico di Torino main campus is a large complex of buildings in Corso Duca degli Abruzzi. It was opened in November 1958, after the former Industrial Museum was completely destroyed during World War II. The buildings were originally designed for use as classrooms, laboratories, offices and rooms for the requirements of the various institutions. Over the years the campus has been extended to meet the changes in both teaching and management needs. The construction of the new Cittadella Politecnica complex in Corso Castelfidardo began in 1997 when Politecnico di Torino acquired the former Officine Grandi Riparazioni. The Cittadella has greatly extended the main campus and demonstrates the importance placed on developing strong links between the Politecnico di Torino and the socio-economic structure of the surrounding region.
ECCTD 2023 will be held at the Politecnico di Torino in the conference rooms:
