During my bachelor and master degrees at the University of Parma, I was used of taking tons of notes during classes and share them with my friends. It turns out that many students still find them useful, even many years after I have graduated.This page includes lecture notes, coursework reports, solutions to lab assignments, etc. Most of the documents are written in Italian and are freely available under a Creative Commons license.
