Where is DEI?
Department of Information Engineering

Remark: the University of Padova does not have a campus and the Departments are spread all over the town. Therefore, you'd better not simply ask for 'the University' if you don't wish to have fuzzy indications. Try instead to ask for the Department of Information Engineering (Ingegneria dell'Informazione, in Italian) or even better for the 'Portello'. The following instructions are useful to reach Ognissanti street buildings too.
