as usual, here I am to welcome you, with all the excitement of a very special start for all of us. After two years, in fact, we are starting again "in presence", an expression that is now commonplace in our vocabulary, but which has within it all the richness of being able to relive the university experience through meeting, dialogue, contact and exchange.
Opera is 30 years old this year and, from the very beginning, has had the objective of being not just a service provider, but a meeting place, a privileged opportunity for self-discovery, talent promotion, and the creation of relationships which, who knows, will accompany you on your personal and professional path.
This is what we call 'residency', giving you the opportunity to live together, to practice sport, culture, have convivial moments, but also to enrich the area with your presence, to populate the city, to make use of your skills and knowledge in the place you have chosen as 'home' for this stage of your life.
During the pandemic, we have tried to stand by your side to guarantee you services that meet your needs, despite all the constraints imposed by the situation, an effort that you have understood and accepted with patience and responsibility.
Now we are back on track! As far as services are concerned, you can find all the information on our website and on our social channels. So there is the Opera4U app for reserving meals and access to counters and canteens, the ticket system for communicating with our offices, and up-to-date information on the rules to be followed to ensure your stay in our facilities is completely safe. We ask you not to lower your guard, respecting all the precautions taken up to now, such as distance, use of masks, hygiene, ventilation of the rooms, no gathering.
Finally, on the occasion of Opera's birthday, we invite you to follow us on our channels, where you will soon find the calendar of celebrations for this important event.
Have a good start!
