Antonio Gianvito PALLOTTA


I’m Antonio Pallotta, from Italy. I studied Linguistic mediation for the UE and International Cooperation. I got my bachelor and master’s degrees at Bari University. My first thesis focuses on the analysis of the language in the representation of the asylum seekers in British newspapers, my second research work focuses on a new idea of European citizenship. I undertook an internship in the “Prefettura di Bari” (Bari department of territorial and internal affairs), at the Single Desk for Immigration where I helped immigrants to follow the administrative procedure for “family reunification”. My desire is to enter the world of work having as my first aim the development cooperation and not to separate my work from a social commitment. This is way I choose Mesci program and I’m sure it will provide me the means to achieve my goals.
