ON 21 APRIL 2023, TURIN CAMPUS HELD THE 17TH EDITION OF ITS ANNUAL GALA, THE MOST GLAMOROUS NIGHT IN THE SOCIAL CALENDAR OF ESCP BUSINESS SCHOOL IN ITALY.
The ESCP Turin Campus celebrated the 50th anniversary of our European model with an astonishing edition of its annual Gran Galà, held for the first time in the spring. The event attracted more than 500 guests from the ESCP team, faculty, institutions, partners, students and alumni.
The Gala took place in a unique and glamorous venue, Snodo, part of OGR - Officine Grandi Riparazioni, the multi-purpose cultural centre located in a former train repair facility.
After a welcome drink and a delicious buffet dinner, Prof Fabrizio Granà took to the stage to introduce our students' talent show. He introduced Paloma Benezech and Ambre Bismuth, who played and sang two songs.
The Gala is a time of celebration, bringing together the entire ESCP community and an opportunity to reflect on our achievements and successes.
The event focused on celebrating an important milestone such as the 50th anniversary of our European model and the ESCP's achievements over the past year, as well as the success of its diverse student community, which were highlighted in a speech by the Dean of the Turin Campus, Professor Francesco Rattalino. He welcomed the guests to celebrate the ESCP's achievements and introduced the institutional greetings from the Mayor of Turin, Stefano Lo Russo, the Dean of the Politecnico di Torino, Guido Saracco, and the President of CUS Torino, Riccardo D'Elicio.
Two prizes were awarded to the students for the Collective Projects by Prof. Fabrizio Granà, local Academic Director of the Bachelor in Management (BSc) and future Associate Dean for the Bachelor programme, which will start on 1 July. The winning teams were:
BSc - First Year: the team of Julian Adamiak, Kevin Arawn Anton Jekan, Nour Battar, Lorenzo Boglione, Hiba Jabri, Alexander Khouadja, Victor Musti and Noah Schick, who worked on their own project "I H8 Math".

After the awards ceremony, guests were treated to a surprise dance performance. The dancers started dancing separately in the junction areas and then came together in the middle and at the end on stage, pointing to the DJ who started a DJ set.
The event continued on the dance floor until late into the night.
It was a night full of beautiful moments and emotions that will be remembered for a long time.
