During the Spring of 2018, I had the chance to intern with the non-profit organization Nove Onlus. From the first interview, I knew that the tasks I was going to carry out were very closely related to my course of study in International Relations.

In April 2018, I began my internship at Romeing, an English-language magazine for expats and tourists in Rome. Romeing updates locals and visitors on a wide range of activities in Rome, from restaurant openings, to concerts, to museum exhibitions.

The Agriturismo Diacceroni is an organic farm in Peccioli, Italy located between Pisa, Siena, and Florence. It consists of a bed and breakfast, three farms, six ‘glamping’ tents, and one villa. Diacceroni is larger than your typical Agriturismo, hosting about 200 guests during its high season.

In the spring of 2018, I was fortunate enough to complete an internship at a company in northeast Rome. App to you is an agency that builds apps for businesses and has recently expanded into doing consultancy work in the Digital Marketing, website creation and traditional marketing fields.

Last summer, I was lucky enough to land an amazing internship at the company BasicNet, which is headquartered in Turin and publicly quoted in Italy.

The Balkans, in particular the turbulent ex-Yugoslav territory, have been among the most important world regions in Noam Chomsky’s political reflections and activism for decades. His articles, public talks, and correspondence have provided a critical voice on political and social issues crucial not only to the region but the entire international community, including "humanitarian intervention," the relevance of international law in today’s politics, media manipulations, and economic crisis as a means of political control.

On July 4th 2018 Prof. Sottilotta  was interviewed by Al Jazeera English on the tensions emerging within Italy's coalition government due to disagreement on how to manage the flow of asylum seekers trying to reach Italy's shores by boat via the central Mediterranean route. While anti-immigration minister of interiors Salvini is successfully monopolizing the attention of the public acting as a de facto prime minister, the Five Star Movement appears to be divided:  its leader Di Maio is officially supporting Salvini's hard line, but other leading figures within the Five Star Movement, especially  Roberto Fico (speaker of the Chamber of Deputies) are expressing opposite views and praising the work of NGOs which are rescuing asylum seekers  in the Mediterranean.
