Abstract

In this issue A Voice from Pari comes from two participants at “The Future of the Academy” conference held in Pari in September 2001. Italian universities are in the midst of large‐scale reforms dictated by the Italian government. When one reads that, while graduates in most European countries can expect to start work in their early twenties, Italian students are not graduating until around the age of 27, it becomes clear why change is needed. Francesca Farabollini, pro‐rector of education at the University of Siena, and Maurizio Franzini, an economist at the same university, have been actively engaged in these reforms and present an analysis of the Italian situation and some reflections on the advantages and disadvantages of open competition in the university market place.
