Who I am

Benedetta Pisani – Journalist

I always find it very difficult to write about myself. Every time I try to jot down a few interesting lines about myself, I get lost. I don’t know how many hours I’ve wasted waiting for inspiration, between cover letters, emails to Professors and secret diaries. I decided, therefore, to tell a story, a very short but happy one.

In autumun of 2017, I had one of the most mind-blowing and wonderful experiences of my life [at least until I was 21 years old]: six months as an Erasmus student in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The friendships cultivated with care and enthusiasm, the people I met by chance, the scents of the city, the small and cozy streets, the squares lit up by Christmas lights, the hot spiced wine and chocolate with cream, the dormitory [rather decadent, actually] that was home. There, I realized who I wanted to be and what I wanted to do…. Listening to people and telling their stories.

My story goes on, but I won’t elaborate. Three years ago, I moved from Naples to Turin to study International Sciences and, after a few weeks, I already felt I was in the right place. Then, when I started to collaborate with the Centro Studi Sereno Regis, that feeling became more and more alive and real. I was home. Here I developed a passion for peace journalism, learning how to put my critical thinking into practice and transfer it to paper.
