Co-president & Co-Chair Una Europa SB

To me, Una Europa is a holistic perspective where interdependence becomes the key to build a truly communitarian university experience.

I am a third-year International Development and Cooperation student. I started my journey in Una Europa in the summer of 2021, as the Vice President of the LTF. 

I spent the second semester of my second year studying as an Erasmus student in Stockholm, focusing on International Business and Politics. However, it was not my first stay in Sweden, since in 2018 I have studied as an Exchange Student in Lund, Sweden. 

I started taking an active role in student-related politics when I was seventeen. I have been President of the Pordenone Student Council and Regional Coordinator of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Student Council during 2019-2020.

I wrote for the PEG editorial board between 2021-2022, and since October 2022 I volunteer in the ESN section of Bologna.

I am now the Co-President of the LTF, and I sit in the Una Europa Student Board as the Executive Board Member for the University of Bologna, and as its Co-Chair.

To me, Una Europa is an opportunity as European citizens to increment the integration efforts, a hope as a student to see the University of Bologna grow on the international level, and a way as a young person to share ideas and projects with my European peers.

I attended the course “International Relations for Marketing” at the technical Institute “Paolini”, where I have been both class representative for five years and coordinator for extracurricular activities.

To me, Una Europa is a chance given to all European students to meet, discuss and grow in the diversity and unicity of each and every one of us.

I am a third-year student of the bachelor course “Diplomatic and International Sciences” in the Forlì Campus of the University of Bologna.

Originally from the Marche region, I have always been active in my territory as a voluntary and charity worker. From summer camps for kids to associations for the homeless, with intermediate steps in event organizing and tutoring for younger students, I have tried to be helpful in as many sectors as possible.

I have been part of a scout group since I was very young and I have been a representative for it in various events, both nationals and international, up until 2020, year in which I decided to leave my group.

A lover of music in all its forms, I have played the flute since I was 5 years old, and I have studied the basis of musical theory and solfeggio. Now I am a bit rusty, but whoever knows me can tell you that it is enough to move the topic to music to start a conversation with me!

Since the beginning of 2022 I have been part of the Bologna Task Force of Una Europa, where I hold the role of director of the People & Talents subdivision.

To me Una Europa represents the starting point of future universities: interconnected, without borders and willing to share and grow together!

I'm a first-year master's degree student in Economics.

I come from Pordenone, where I had the chance to develop my sense of civic duty thanks to the membership to a scout group in my hometown and one in Bolzano.With them I was active in my local community through different volunteering activities, such as children's entertainment and some help in a retirement home.

After high school I studied my Bachelor at the Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, where the university context as well as the presence of different cultures contributed to broaden my horizons, from local to more international ones.

Then, my Erasmus at the University of Mannheim made me discover many cultures from various parts of the world and made me more aware of the importance of international cooperation. This is what has driven my choice to join Una Europa, in which I currently have the role of Event Manager.

To me, Una Europa represents a challenge and an opening for future generations. It’s an international inclusive and innovative educational program, a step forward in a unique partnership between high-level universities.

I’ve graduated from the University of Bologna in International and Diplomatic Sciences and I’m a currently passionate Master’ degree student in Mass media and politics.

I was born and raised in Naples and thanks to my high school linguistic diploma I can speak Spanish and French other than English.

Last year I was able to be a part of the Regional Civil Service in Cesena, which allowed me to get in touch with different sectors of the civil society, public administrations, cultural associations and European planning.      

During 2022, I participated as a graphic and communication assistant in a national project to support electoral campaigns and still now I collaborate for a Neapolitan cultural association of artistic promotion and events. I like the idea of ​​a communication with a visual impact, of emotions but also of truth and criticism. Personally, I enjoy teamwork, organization but especially empathy, honesty, and collaboration. I can call myself a fanatic of cinema, books, art and politics (but just a little bit).

To me, Una Europa represents an innovative and dynamic network between different universities. A connection created for a better future with improved and renewed universities more in line with possible future challenges.

I'm Carla, a 22-year-old student born and raised in Oristano, Sardinia. After my bachelor’s in political science I decided to move to enrol in the University of Bologna in order to study for my master's degree in Mass Media and Politics.

I am currently involved in several projects both inside and outside the University environment. My main interest is the world of communication and social media that's why I help in managing some social media pages focused on different areas: information, entertainment, university.

I strongly value the possibility to collaborate and work as a team. I'm truly happy to be part of the LTF and to really take an active part in a project that could benefit students and universities in general.

To me, Una Europa is the desire of being part of a bigger international network, but first and foremost the necessity to work as a whole and grow together, enhancing our diversities as resources, in order to improve the lives of the students of the future. 

I’m a 24 years-old guy from Sicily and a third-year Anthropology student. Ever since I was a child I have always been interested in cultures, travelling and human behavior; thus, right after graduating Scientific School in 2017, I decided to move to Australia, where I lived for almost a year and, with my backpack on, I met people from all around the world.   

Back in Italy in 2018, I enrolled in the course “Antropologia, Religioni e Culture Orientali” at UniBo through which I have built a theorical support to my passion and curiosity towards cultures and opened my mind on how intrigued, yet interesting society can be! Moreover, in the last few years I have matured the idea of the necessity to be more socially committed as a young student.

From the spring of 2022 I am a Department Representative in the Student Council at Unibo and since October 2022 a member of the Local Task Force of Una Europa in the People & Talents subdivision.

To me, Una Europa is the opportunity to cooperate to build the University of the future.

I am a passionate second-year student of the Master in Law and Economics of Insurance and Finance at the University of Bologna.

During my bachelor studies I had the opportunity to take part in an Erasmus+ experience at the EPHEC University in Brussels, that allowed me to broaden my horizons, both academically and personally.

Since the last year I have been the academic tutor of the master’s degree in law and economics, becoming the reference point for the students, helping them finding their way around the maze of administrative bureaucracy.

In the past years I have volunteered for various local organisations, trying to do my part for others and the community. I have been part of the UniBo LTF since fall 2022.
