The "USI25 Love Story" contest is entering its final stage. Among the numerous nominations, for which we sincerely thank the community of students and alumni, the jury has chosen the three finalist couples. Therefore, it is now up to you to choose the most beautiful love story of the first 25 years of Università della Svizzera italiana: the story with the most votes will win a two-night stay for two people at the Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola in Lugano. Vote on www.wooclap.com/25ANNIUSI.

The love stories
Gisela and Florin met during their Master in International Tourism, and her fear of flying brought them closer: they now live in Bern, but together they plan to travel the world. For Ginevra and Mattia, the spark was ignited during a modelling workshop at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio, where they were confined to work for several days and nights. The third finalists are Elisa and Omar, an intercultural couple who formed on the desks of the Master in Marketing: after overcoming some obstacles, he (Lebanese, from Beirut) proposed at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. More details on these love stories are available on www.wooclap.com/25ANNIUSI, told in the first person by the protagonists.

How to vote
Everyone can cast their vote by the end of August: the system www.wooclap.com/25ANNIUSI requires authentication to avoid multiple casting of votes. The access data will not be used for other purposes.

Award presentation
The contest winners will receive an e-mail from the organisers. The award ceremony will be held at the USI25 Alumni & Alumnae Reunion on 4 September 2021, at 6:30 pm on the Lugano East Campus.

The sponsor
The Grand Hotel Villa Castagnola in Lugano is partner of the initiative and sponsors the award for the best USI love story. Set on the shores of Lake Lugano, this magnificent 5-star resort is a charming property nestled in a subtropical park just a 5-minute walk from USI's Lugano campuses.
