Amici de "Il Faggio” was founded in 1992 by a group of students to propose initiatives in different areas of student life: there are courses to help first year students to study for examinations, and meetings to learn about academic subjects in more detail.

The organization also offers cultural events and public lectures and discussions on current issues.

Recreational activities are of course part of the programme: film screenings, concerts, the press release “Dentro Tutto”, welcome parties and a futsal tournament for first year students, an economics desk, exhibits and so on.
