Deeply interested in Latin American politics, I graduated from my home University in Rome and now I am studying abroad in order to enrich my academic knowledge of energy and how it affects international relations.

My final disseration for my BA covers the relations between military issues and contemporary Latin American foreign policy, with a case study covering Argentina, from Kirchner to Macri's Presidency. My dream is to work for an important energy corporation or become a professor. Apart from that, I am an enthusiast radio speaker from my university and a passionate reader.

Argentina: A Dream Fulfilled

Argentina. A land of many ecosystems and one of the largest countries in South America. As a young adult, I dreamt of visiting Argentina, especially after reading Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara’s, “The Motorcycle Diaries,” and seeing the movie thereafter. Although the story and book focused on Che Guevara’s life, images of the Argentine landscape could not escape my mind. So, I decided to learn more about Argentina’s ecosystems and communities in various parts of the country via my studies.

Los Pibes: La Boca beyond Instagram and Gangster films

‘Los pibes’ in Rioplatense Spanish means the kids, and that, unsurprisingly, is what this movement is dedicated to. To the children of now, but also those of the future, a future that will hopefully look different for those in the famous and infamous neighbourhood of La Boca.

What's it like to come to Buenos Aires as a volunteer?

When I first considered my exchange year abroad, and which Spanish-speaking country I wanted to be in, I thought initially of a continent, and then of a specific country. I’d studied some Latin American, and specifically Argentinian literature last year and I’d heard really good things about the country, so, after a bit more research, I knew Argentina would be the place for me.

'Ecology without a social fight is simply gardening': Kasia's experience at Comunidad Milpa

Over the weekend, Neil, Milena, and I visited Comunidad Milpa, a project outside of Buenos Aires city towards Tigre. Having got up early to get the bus from Plaza Italia, what struck me on arrival was how industrial the area is. I was told that this part of town was home to several factories, among them the Ford production plant. With the backdrop of this industrial landscape, Comunidad Milpa felt somewhat out of place, which is perhaps exactly why it makes perfect sense that it is situated here.
