The University of Insubria English Website
The University of Insubria website receives hits from all over the world.
The building block themed images throughout the site represent the very foundation that allows for learning growth and prosperity, all integral for the University, its faculty and students. Additionally the consistency of green throughout, and so prominent in the University of Insubria logo, is reminiscent of Insubria’s rich vegetation.
This site was developed and created in tandem with the University by Brädam Creative, an international marketing, advertising, design and public relations agency headquartered in the United States.

The University of Insubria website was designed using W3C standard XHTML and CSS (cascading style sheet) layout. The following browsers were set as benchmarks.
Browsers that SHOULD get the CSS:
All other browsers should NOT get the style sheet. We estimate 1.3% of our viewers will not see the page with the CSS. The CSS used complies with W3C standards.
Why did we make this decision?
Browsers NOT in this list might not handle our CSS correctly. We decided to provide all content without styling to these browsers rather than a non-functioning page.
But my browser should work! If you feel your browser should be added to our list, please send us a message at email@example.com with the browser, browser version and operating system.
How can I update my browser? A list of recommended browsers with downloads is available above.
Microsoft Internet Explorer for Macintosh is no longer supported by Microsoft, and it is no longer listed as a recommended browser for The University of Insubria website. We recommend either Safari or Firefox for Macintosh users.
In addition, Netscape is no longer listed as one of the preferred browsers. Use of Netscape has decreased and the commitment to continued maintenance of the Netscape browser is uncertain. Given this, and the fact that there are viable alternatives, we recommend using one of the preferred browsers above instead of Netscape.
