Cultural and recreational activities organised by DSU-Toscana

Based on a special agreement with the University of Siena, the Azienda Regionale per il Diritto allo Studio Universitario (DSU-Toscana) promotes various cultural and recreational activities for university students.
In particular, the DSU-Toscana encourages students to participate in theatrical and musical events by offering contributions, reduced rates, partial reimbursements of cinema season tickets or passes and organises other cultural initiatives such as guided tours of museums and the area.
One of the most popular initiatives of the last few years has been the distribution of cinema ticket vouchers. The agreement involves two cinema in the centre of town: Cinema Pendola and Cineforum. Foreign students can pick up tickets at a reduced rate at the DSU-Toscana office in via P.Mascagni 53, upon presentation of their certificate of enrolment at the University of Siena.
