Erasmus student mobility. The successful story of Giuseppe Caminiti.

Erasmus student mobility. The successful story of Giuseppe Caminiti.

Each year Guglielmo Marconi University helps multiple students find the traineeship of their dreams. It is an arduous yet extremely gratifying task for the Erasmus team at GMU to achieve this annual objective. This year we would like to share the story of Giuseppe Caminiti, who recently graduated in Computer Engineering at GMU. Benedetta Canacari, responsible of the Erasmus+ program, had the immense pleasure to meet Mr. Caminiti in 2016, during Career Day. He showed unparalleled motivation and curiosity for the various opportunities and different institutions that were presented to him during the event. Mr. Caminiti was particularly interested in the Fachhochschule Technikum Wien University, where he ended up spending his student mobility for study in 2018. This period marked an extremely crucial moment of Mr. Caminiti’s academic path, who often refers to it as the most important experience of his life. During this time at Technikum Wien University, he had the chance to put into practice all the precious knowledge acquired, breaking the boundaries of his comfort zone. Thanks to his commitment and remarkable curiosity Mr. Caminiti received an important recognition for his academic career abroad. We firmly believe that it is very important for students to experience different realities during their studies, it is a challenging opportunity that allows them to break out of their comfort zone, interact with an international environment, create a useful network of acquaintances, and possibly learn a new language.

Half a Classroom, Second Edition

Half a Classroom, Second Edition: a new adventure has started!

The Second Edition of HALF A CLASSROOM (HC) |Building Open Works, for the a.y. 2019-2020, begun on October 9, 2019 with a fascinating seminar dedicated to the labyrinth myth. Silvia Paris, coordinator of the meeting, carried out both the theoretical part, focusing on the relation between philosophy and poetry, and the performative part, an astute commingling of poetic texts chant and of literary readings that accompanied us in the meanders of this complex and dense theme. The program, revolving around ten monthly meetings, covers different artistic fields: singing and theater; sculpture and photography; museum house and poetry; dancing, painting and storytelling. Thanks to the double format envisioned by HC, each encounter foresees a theoretical report and a performative art workshop. These artistic practices offer inedited perspectives, illuminating the underlying theoretical dimension, whereas the theoretical part feeds, in a way, on these, acquiring a concrete meaning by dialoguing with the artistic exemplification.

Festival della Diplomazia (Diplomacy Festival), is a not-for-profit association funded by high level Italian representatives of economic, social, political and institutional sectors. The objective of the festival is to organize yearly events focusing on the analysis and understanding of European and global phenomena under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Representation in Italy of the European Commission and the European Parliament. In the framework of the 2019 edition, Università degli Studi Guglielmo Marconi (USGM) joined the event Malaysia: Industry 4.0 & Start-up Initiatives, hosted by the Embassy of Malaysia in Rome on October 24, 2019. The meeting presented “Industry4wrd”, the new Industry 4.0 Malaysian national plan launched in 2018, along with the governmental initiatives favoring investments in start-ups and innovative companies in the Southeastern country.
