UniCarto is part of a broader project called #UnitoGo#Food#Lab, with the objective to build shared knowledge on the nutritional habits of the university community, analyzing the territorial responses to these needs, and thee link between food and city.

With FirstLife was made a participatory mapping involving 200 students to identify all places in which they buy or consume food during the five weekdays when they attend university.

120 places have been identified near the Campus Luigi Einaudi and Palazzo Nuovo. The most of them are very close to universities, proving the relevant role of the territory to respond basic need as food (especially low cost restaurant and fast service). Some other places are used to consume homemade food, showing a widespread need for spaces dedicated to this type of use into the university.
