Hello everyone! My name is Samuele Raponi. I am from Rome and I attended Liceo Linguistico Catullo, where I studied Spanish, English and German. During my high school years I had the opportunity to be part of several Erasmus+ projects that allowed me to live very enriching experiences. My academic career has always been in the first place, but I have not given up on other interests. Practicing a sport has always been important for me, in fact I have been playing in a volleyball team for the last six years. Being part of a team has shown me the importance of collaboration and support while facing challenges. Moreover I am interested in politics and economics, so this course seems the perfect path for me to take.
