Few days ago we presented you Michele Calamaio, an Italian master student in Journalism at Università degli studi di Verona.
We asked him to tell us more about his experience in Sweden at Mid Sweden Uni.
“After my visit period in Sweden and my graduation at Verona University, I had the possibility to realize a paper-blog, Ciak Travel Post, together with Raffaele Puzio and Marika De Chiara, which focuses on filmmaking and tourism issues.
I also obtained two other professional grants. The first one is Stars4Media Professional Exchange, a professional exchange program about the most important journalistic issues concerning European policies. Together with Giuseppe Papalia and Piotr Kaczynski, I have developed a transmedia storytelling project on the issue of international migration and the impact of Covid-19. The second one is Blueebook European Commission Traineeship, a professionalizing internship at the European Commission in the DG – COMM Social Media & Visual Communication, where I currently work as political audiovisual communication strategist.
Therefore, the scholarship granted by C.M. Lerici Foundation was fundamental, even “mindblowing”, for my ambitions. I’m sure it will be the same for the next generations of researchers and practitioners who want to discover the intriguing Scandinavian culture.“
