'Nothing but talk' is a series of multimedia presentations (talks) offered at Scuola Superiore level with the aim
of stimulating and developing students' interest in the topics proposed.
The presentations are essentially an extension of the teacher's work in the classroom, and are designed to provide the students with a positive experience in following a live unscripted spoken discourse on a topic with relevance to their studies.
