img_6362

Hello everybody, on the blog a special contribution from some high school students, selected for the project Alternanza scuola-lavoro. Every week we will publish our own post and an amusing video, produced at the Language café.

Eleonora Capozi, Language Café Team
What I was doing at Luiss Language Café? I was working at LLC as a tutor of high school students from Alternanza scuola lavoro.

Almost two years ago I graduated on political sciences. I’ve really no idea what I’ll do when I grow up xD, probably I’ll try a competition or probably not. I really like challenges  which is the main reason why I always try to put myself to the test, betting on myself.

Coming back as an employee, I extremely appreciate the multiporpose and multilingual café, it constantly remembers me an incredible Erasmus atmosphere like in Strasbourg, lot’s fun!

“CINEMATIC CALAMITY” by THE MASTER OF MOVIE DISASTER, LUISS Student

FullSizeRender.jpg

Concept: each week, I criticize a very bad, technically inept or ridiculous film, whilst also highlighting its cinematic merit (or the lack of it), and proving that thanks to the magic of “so bad it’s good”, sometimes, there’s a lot of fun to be had in watching a terrible movie.

Who is the Movie Master of Disaster?

The Movie Master of Disaster is a mysterious, reclusive English gentleman who lives in a castle where he spends his time watching films, usually very bad films.  He is an expert in B-movies and often gives scathing criticism of those movies in his reviews, whether it’s the bad story, bad special effects, bad acting, etc.  The Movie Master of Disaster is never seen without his signature mask, which covers half his face: nobody knows who he really is, and he wishes for his identity to be kept a secret.

Review Grade: each film is reviewed and given an algebraic grade, out of 10, with zero being the lowest mark and 10 the highest.  The grade reflects only my appreciation of the film rather than its technical merit, and sometimes, a very bad film or TV series can result in a good mark.  There are no “shit” films as far as this review column is concerned: even if a film is unwatchably bad, the Master will try to find some redeeming qualities in it, and never gives a zero grade.

Whenever possible, an Italian translation of each film title is provided.

“Communication Skill” by Claudia Perillo, LUISS Student

foto-copy

Student of Management, with a major in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. I’m passionate of innovation and communication. During my bachelor degree I was a teaching assistant of Alberto Castelvecchi, a public speaking and communication professor of LUISS Business School. Thanks to him I learn what I know about communication and my interest in this subject began. I’m interested in every creative way to innovate the world and in every way of communication.

I believe in talent, but I think that the keystone for success and leadership is commitment. In order to became a real leader, your commitment should be not only an engagement in skills and capabilities, but a real communication engagement.

“Greener Lifestyle” by Giulia Vitali, LUISS Student

IMG_0480.jpg

After having obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science, here at LUISS, I am know studying Marketing as a double degree student. I wrote my final dissertation with Prof. Di Paola – as part of the “Population, Environment and Sustainability” course – and it was through the researches I did  in order to develop my work, that I had the possibility to deepen my knowledge about circular economy.

I have a real interest for innovation and how it can be applied to sustainable practices in both, everyday life and business.

Here, as a writer for the LLC Blog, I would like to explore with you greener way of life, meaning not only single individual actions that we can put in place, but also taking into consideration what firms can do to deal with the main sustainability issues and threats affecting our planet.

“Beat the Beat” by Lorenzo Leonardi, LUISS Student

2017-03-13-PHOTO-00000109.jpg

Italian, born in ’93. Travelled for most of my life, I’m a vagrant with no home. Passionate computer science nerd, physics enthusiast and obsessive audiophile. Currently finishing my studies at LUISS and dipping my toes into electronic music production. It is a long-lost dream of mine to be able to play and express the sounds I hear in my own head. To that end, we can take this particular journey into the music realm together. Having never played an instrument myself and starting from scratch, I will try to provide tips&tricks neophytes like myself might find useful.

We will start from the very beginning, and see how far we get; so, let’s jump right in!

“Homecoming” by Anonymous 

Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbH

Being asked who I am, as an author of blog section about meditation is really ironic I think. The reason of that is whatever images and concepts come to my mind about my person (persona in Latin originally meant “mask”) are all wrong. You cannot be somebody which you think you are, because who is the one who thinks about it than? Also these images constantly change, sometimes we change them on purpose and sometimes it happens by itself. So I do not want to be attached to an image which tomorrow might not be there anymore. I am only that space where all these projections, thoughts and concepts run through, but it is just a happening it is not my doing 🙂

Giancarlo di Marco, LUISS Student

Collaborated on “Bushcraft” column.

I tried so many activities concerning the wild, and I found what mostly let me live it in Bushcraft. If you are interested in nature things or in finding who you are lets read my articles!

Hope we’ll have fun together!

 

“Insiders Guide To Rome” by Francesca Errico, LUISS Student

16933469_10210359084227803_914863920_n.jpg

I’m 22 years old and I study Economics and Business. I’m mad about Rome, where I’ve been living since I was born. Discovering new hidden places in my city is one of my biggest passions. My friends say that my first quality is empathy because when I meet someone new I try to be in her/his shoes respecting her/his own privacy and interiority. Indeed empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, hearing with the ears of another and feeling with the heart of another.

I think that if people were a little more empathetic the world would be better!

lorenzo basile

21,  born and raised in Rome. I am a bachelor degree student in Business and Management. I love travelling, making new experiences, riding motorbikes and of course I’m very interested in economics; in finance and financial markets to be more precise. However, my first and foremost passion is sport. I love every sport that gives strong emotions, adrenaline and new sensations. I practice alpine skiing, at a competitive level, since I can remember; when I was younger I also practiced tennis and volleyball. However, for three years now, my new frontier is windsurfing: I consider it, along with skiing, the best sport I’ve ever practiced (until now, at least!). I will share news, facts and information, also about extreme sports!

Let’s have fun!

Collaborated on “Postmodernist” column.

22, from Rome, I began my university studies as a physics undergraduate at Imperial College London, before switching to economics at Luiss.

Passionate about mathematics, politics and critical thinking, I dream of making a contribution to the creation of sustainable economic policies for a fairer, farsighted globalisation.

In a world of speakers (but no real listeners) it is essential to be able to ‘think outside the box’, realising that we are unlikely to find all the solutions to society’s issues in our customary approaches to life and technology.

Fascinated by mindfulness and cognitive psychology, I believe these may hold the key to a happier existence.

Blimey, I forgot to mention that I do have a social life!
