Scholares vagantes, cycling across Europe with the oldest Universities

In spring 2022, in order to celebrate its 800 years of history, the University of Padua organises a cycling relay through the oldest universities in Europe, as memory of the medieval scholares vagantes who crossed borders in search of a common culture, as well as a reference to modern international students’ mobility.

The University of Padua will cross, with traditional bikes and its nine cycling teams, four countries: Great Britain, France, Spain and finally Italy, involving six of the ancient Universities in Europe (Oxford, Cambridge, Paris Sorbonne, Salamanca, Bologna e Padua).
