SOCIAL LIFE IN PRILEP vs MY ITALIAN CITY

SOCIAL LIFE IN PRILEP vs MY ITALIAN CITY

SOCIAL LIFE IN PRILEP vs MY ITALIAN CITY: first impressions and simple thoughts

Hello everyone, I am Beatrice, and I am from Italy. More precisely, from Cernusco sul Naviglio, a city next to Milan.

Cernusco has about 35,000 inhabitants, so it is not so big. The fact that it is in the metropolitan area of Milan makes it really connected and well served. This is also why when my friends and I are away, we say that we come from Milan. Because we feel Milanese in some way, and most of us also go to high school and university there. We are extremely near to Milan, like twenty minutes by car and fifteen by metro.

The point is that all the young people I have already met in my first days in Prilep have said to me that here there is not an interesting nightlife or something really exiting to do. It was like the fact that I come from Italy makes me automatically a person with a great and exiting social life.

Now, I would like to downsize this idea. Not because it is wrong, but it is also not totally right.

In my city, people grow in a small and healthy environment, where almost everyone knows each other. As a child, you have a lot of places to go, like parks and play areas. As in every city in the world, also in Cernusco there are some neighbourhoods and areas where life is more difficult, and people are poorer and live in different conditions. But in general, it is a rich city where I grew up safely and happily, with all the things I needed. And it is the same for most people in my city. In the last years Cernusco has grown more and a lot of new families are settling in Cernusco to build a new, safe, and peaceful life.

In this context of well-being also the nightlife has became more interesting. But it is still a small city with just a few bars, some nightclubs, and places where to go to take a beer or drink whatever you want. So, a lot of people prefer to go out in the Milan city centre, where the nightlife is really exciting and offers really different types of activities, and the streets are full of people. My friends and I go out in Milan just sometimes. We started do to it more in the last years because now we all have the drive license and a car to use. But going out in Milan has also some difficulties: It is more expensive; we have to organize how to move and decide where to go; if you want to go more in the centre of Milan it’s really difficult to go by car, and if you go by metro you can’t come back home whenever you want. So, actually, we continue to hang out in Cernusco or in some bar in Milan but not in the real downtown. Just occasionally, we try to go out and live the real Milanese nightlife. For all these reasons, it is more common for me and my friends to organize home parties or to meet friends at someone’s house. It is easier for us and a desirable alternative to bars or Milan, and most of all it is cheaper. However, evenings and nights at a friend's house are a common thing for young people all around Italy, wherever you live and whoever you are.

So, here in Prilep, from this nightlife point of view, it is not like Milan but also not like Cernusco. Prilep is bigger than my city, there are more bars where you can go at night. Maybe not so much more, but certainly there are many more people in the weekend’s nights.

Yes, for me, it is a different life here, but more because it is a different culture and country, with distinct characteristics and problems than in my country. Of course, here I cannot have the same life that I could have at home, but I do not think that one of the main differences is the night and social life. That is because I come from Cernusco sul Naviglio, but it is the same in all the city in Italy that are not the big cities. Some small towns are even worst from this point of view, because there is really nothing for young people.

Perhaps, one of the main differences between Prilep and my Italian city, is that we are in the metropolitan area of Milan, so it is easy for us to move almost wherever and whenever we want, since in Cernusco there is not much to do. In almost all the north of Italy It is easy to move, because we are well-connected with an excellent road network and public transport. Here in Prilep It is maybe more complicated to go out in other cities. In addition, it is already the biggest city in the area, so you have to settle for what the city offers you (this seems to think the young people I have met so far here in Prilep). But for me, it is enough what I can find here! Yes, it is not Milan, but it depends also on what you like!

Finally, these are still my first days, and my impressions can change. I just wanted to specify how it is not so obvious that the social and nightlife here for me, a foreign, an Italian citizen and a Milanese, is boring or not interesting. So far, I am really enjoying it!

I hope to continue to meet people and know more about life in Prilep and in Macedonia. I’ m so curious and excited.

 

 

The meaning of volunteering

The meaning of volunteering

THE MEANING OF VOLUNTEERING

In history, in Europe, and in my personal experience

Volunteering is now a well-known activity, since in the last years the number of volunteers all over the world have been constantly increasing. In general, volunteering could be considered “a voluntary act of an individual or group freely giving time and labour for community service”. But some aspects and aims, as well as also the structures and forms of organisation are changed throughout the decades.

In the Middle Ages, there was a great welfarism, most of all connected with religious organisation. The word ‘volunteering’ started being used in the 18th century when people were willingly joining the military service. It started to be more organized with the great wars when young people, and especially women, helped wounded soldiers and collected supplies. The officially organized volunteering started in the 19th, and some organisations are active even today. In the European context, the reality of volunteering is now strong, organized and developed: Europe institutions want to improve the volunteering system and to sensibilize young people about volunteering. Now, we have so many platforms and opportunity that it is not easy to choose one!

A turning point for European volunteering has been the crisis of the welfare state. With the growing difficulties of public authorities to respond to the needs of society, a new wave of organisations appeared on the scene. The volunteering organisation started to have a leading role in humanitarian intervention and social support, thus compensating for the shortcomings of the state system. This is a negative aspect of volunteering because it means that something is not working in that country and people need a help or an opportunity that their governments is not interested or able to give to them. At the same time, for this very reason volunteering is an extremely important phenomenon, because where there are a lot of volunteers it means that people want to be proactive in their society. Indeed, volunteering offers many social, economic, and cultural benefits, because allow people to improve their skills and so their self-esteem, reduce the risk of social isolation, create a people network, and facilitate the integration of socially disadvantaged individuals, etc.

For what concern the number of young volunteers, in recent years there has been a revival. The youngest generation is more aware of the importance of volunteering, is really interested in being useful for others and for the society, and is generally open-minded and politically active. Personally, I have always believed in the strength of volunteering. One of the first benefit for me is the sense of usefulness, which responds to my desire to help other people. But with volunteering I also learned many things, I met different and wonderful people, I broadened my horizons and learned to look at the world with different eyes. To date, it has also become an opportunity to sensitise young people to become responsible citizens. This has an enormous influence on local and European communities, because create active citizens aware of their environment and so able to contribute to find solutions to the challenges faced by their countries.

I really believe in the wonderful opportunity that volunteering can be for young people. We must be stimulated to volunteer, because I think it is one of the best ways to learn more about life and other culture, to find our own way and to achieve new skills, being at the same time useful for others and for the entire community. We can achieve more awareness of our world and learn how to act to try to make it better. Young people have fresh energies and ideas that must be used. And volunteering is a good way to use them. For our own personal growth and for our world community.

PHOTOJOURNALISM

PHOTOJOURNALISM

Letizia Battaglia and the importance of reporters in documenting reality

Suggestions for young people

 

On 13th of April 2022, an important Italian female photojournalist died at the age of 87. Her name is Letizia Battaglia, and she is one of the most important photographers in Italy, mostly known for documenting mafia crimes and its victims in Sicily, specifically in the city of Palermo, her hometown.

She started photographing in 1969, working for a Palermitan newspaper. She was the only woman among male colleagues, and the first female photographer hired by an Italian newspaper. In the 70s, Italy was in the middle of the Years of Lead, a period of social and political turmoil marked by a wave of both far-left and far-right terrorism acts. And Battaglia documented that period in Palermo, always trying to inform the public opinion about those crimes, not only the mafia ones. On 6th of January 1980, she is the first photojournalist to arrive at the place where Piersanti Mattarella, the brother of the current President of Italy, was killed in a mafia attack.

She became famous all around the world, till obtaining some international acknowledgments and awards: she was the first European woman receiving the Eugene Smith Prize in New York in 1985. She is still remembered for being “the mafia photographer”, to the point that some of her photos were also used as fundamental evidence during the mafia trials; but she is also known for her great work as a reporter documenting and narrating her city, Palermo, with its contradictions and its people, observing deeply and with a smart and original look the whole of Palermo society.

It is commonly recognized that Letizia Battaglia succeeded in being a professional photojournalist. This is not an easy profession, in particular nowadays with the whole picture culture that increased with social network, where everyone everywhere can be in some way a photographer, taking picture and publishing them. But photojournalism is not just taking pictures. It is a type of journalism, and for this reason it must have the aim of informing in an objective and well-founded way. A photojournalist’s job is to tell a story with pictures. The goal is to convey the truth through the images. Through photographs of some scenarios (war, conflicts, critical social situation, crimes etc.), viewers are able to get a glimpse of what is going on in other places, and to be more aware of society’s ills.

Nowadays, photojournalism is in a period of great change and evolution. Golden Age of photojournalism have gone, but the field still remains vital and even more apt to be timely and relevant with the exponential technological advances that are occurring every day. A lot of young people are being interested and passionate in the photography world, in different ways and for different aim. One of them is the documentary field, the one of reporters, of movie making, or also the one connected with travelling and exploring. These types of job and occupation could have a great future and they are already starting to being more recognised. Young people all over the world want to explore and being informed about what is happening around them, they want to see with their own eyes and try to understand. This is, I think, a really good thing that means that the youth generation is active and involved. And where it isn’t, it should be motivated to be. And one of the most powerful instruments we have, in addition to our voice and knowledge, is photography. It is something that can be done also just with the mobile phone, that is truly a powerful tool. But be careful! Inform and discover throughout photography, is complicated and need awareness, rules and knowledge about not just the instruments used but also about the object to be documented.

Anyways, this can be an important field to explore for young people that want to fight for something, for example for social justice, or it could be a powerful way to exploring and document the climate change, one of the main battles waged by young people. It is not the only one interesting field existing, but it is the one I am personally interested in right now. The news about the death of Letizia Battaglia made me remember about this, and so I wanted to share this reflection with my generation and all the young people around me.
