When I entered the College, from the thousands of proposals (conferences, sports, language courses…)  I would have chosen… all of them! Only with the passing of time I learnt to choose: choose the activities to take part in and also choose whom to spend time with, to assess when and the people to study with, which exam marks to accept and, from the thousands of courses… prepared by the cook, choose the favourite one: a choice, this latter, which turned out to be particularly difficult! Who knows me knows very well how many wrong choices I made – not least the choice to take “all” the cook’s dishes! – nevertheless it is exactly for this reason that I thank my College. You gave me the opportunity to experiment adult’s life and to be mistaken, but always without letting “too much” harm come to me.

College life allowed me also to learn to live alone, to schedule my priority list, College life gave me dearest friends with whom I shared much more than only study commitment: I learnt from them the words of pain, emotion and of debate, the laughter and the silence, I learnt to keep quiet when I disagreed and to stand up when my dissent originated from experience. I believe I had the best occasion to get close to freedom without misusing it.
