Italy: Police and students clash during protest against faculty transfer

Police clashed with students in Milan on Tuesday as they protested against a reform that would transfer several faculties of the University of Milan to a different area of the city. Protesters tried to reach one of the university buildings as the academic senate voted whether to approve this reform of not. Scuffles broke out as riot police tried to stop them. The new regulation would imply... Еще transferring the scientific faculties from Città Studi, in the city centre, to the area in which the Expo 2015 took place, more in the outskirts. Most students and other university members oppose to this change because it would move them away of such a historical building in the city centre. Some neighbours of Città Studi also joined the protest as they feared that moving students out of the area will contribute to more speculation and a rise of housing prices, local media said. Promoters of the reform alleged that transferring the faculties would provide students with more modern and appropriate spaces than the old buildings of Città Studi.
