Italy, 2016, Civil Engineering of Infrastructure Systems in Transportation

 

“I needed to learn about anti seismic engineering and why not doing it in the best country in the world”

I’m from Torino, where I study Civil Engineering of Infrastructure Systems in Transportation at the Politécnico di Torino. I will attend my last year of my masters here in Chile, at the Universidad Católica. I needed to take some compulsory classes about anti seismic engineering and I would like to study in the best country in the world when it comes to it. Besides, I’m fascinated with South America and Chile seems different to me.

In Italy, you don’t see a big gap between rich and poor people. It is not only about the money, it’s also related to the culture and family, and I like that. I don’t see this as something negative, but as something good where you can learn a lot from people.

I like the university a lot, the campus is fabulous. There a lot of green areas and it’s perfect to study, live and rest. I find this amazing; we lack this in Italy a little bit. The courses are different, I think they are efficient. We have studying-teaching here, we have to study more often, and it’s more intense.

Chileans seemed to be fascinated with Italy, so they always ask me questions. Everything has been positive.
