Università italiane: che figura!! (Italian universities, what a shame!!)

I am a proud alumnus of the University of Pisa, Italy were I earned my M.Sc. degree, but I am very sad to discover that no Italian university is listed among world's top 100 academic institutions (from Newsweek in 2006).

In contrast, I am also a proud alumnus of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) where I earned my Ph.D. in Computer Science. EPFL is ranked 26th!!

Finally, I've been visiting scholar of University of California, Berkeley, and University of Stanford as a post-doctoral fellow. These two institution are ranked respectively 4th and 2nd!!

What will be the next step?
