my name is Emiliano. I’m italian and I live in Palestrina, a little city near Rome. I think that my life was and is a little bit crazy and unpredictable. In the past I stopped my studies after the period of military. Because I thought that was useless to study… I did all types of work: laborer, mason, painter, driver, worker… but in the summer of the 2000 I had a terrible incident with my truck and so I had serious problem with my leg. After 6 months the problemes were altmost solved… but I yet haven’t the power to work as a worker. I had difficult because I had few strenght… and so I decided that it was the time to start again to study very well… and so I start to study the HTML 4.0 and Dynamic. After one year I was writing in the university of comunication of Rome - Cooperation and development and Relationship between the people. And so during this years that I decided to change my life…
I become also the Vice Presidente of Amnesty International of the Region Lazio. I spoke with many people about the situation of the Uman Right in Europe and in the World. I worked as voluntary in the “Protezione Civile”, I fighted a hard battle to found the money for “Cristina”, a child that she need help to have an operation in USA (200.000 Euro). Then I founded a my association to help the poor people. The name is “La Fenice” and with this association we helped the people of the eartquake of Aquila, poor and homeless and other similar dramaci events.
I’m very happy but I had fear that there was something I missed. I speak with many people and friends in my country, in the my Region and with other people in the Social Network, and I understood that I wasn’t lliving but I was surviving and with me there were a lot of people that was as me…
So I decided that I had to work not only for the social but also to contribute to improve the politic and the istitutions conditions. I started to interest me of the italian politic situation. Study new proposals, work to joined all the people and young to work all together so to have a good life in every city. During these years I worked in a famous Multinational: TNTLOGISTICS. And I was the coordinator about 60 persons. I had a good contract but I understood after some years that this wasn’t my work for my life!!
After I receveid a proposal to work in a segretary of the President of the Board of the Region Lazio. For me was a good opportunity and so I had to deal a no sample decision, but at the end I accepted and so started for me a new and unexpected new life. After one year the president become MEP and so I left for the Europe and Bruxelles.
About this moment start for me another life…
I discovered the habits of another country. Political habits, cultural babits, istitution habits, and so and so…!!!
I undertood immediatly the opportunity of the europe and there understood that this was the time of my work… of my activity. I decided that I had a responsability: to bring this mentality and best practice in Italy. So the following year I went in every italian istitution to understand why the italian had not European identity!!! Why the italians don’t work as the other european people. Why the italians wasn’t able to take the European founding.
So my work, as european assistant was, and also now is, to bring the political news and work in Italy at the political italians but when I finisced at about 6.00 P.M. I went in the others istitutions to study and to understand the situation and how improve the italian situation. So this was a dream and a very ambitious, but step by step I was able to explain my projects and I was able to involve some actors to work all together.
At the beginning I tried to work with the official istitutions, because I would have like to increase the possibility to get founding in the right way! In the european way. Work with the lobby and built the italians relations as reliable… But this work was impossible. Becase I tried to work with the ANCI (is an istitution of the italian Commons) but they thought only at the political relations and at the money to share… and not at the work as know how and to understand the system!
So I with all my frustration, decided to take the private way and so in september of this year I founded the EDS Association- European Development Service. I’m the presidente and other persons are my members, all with two objectives: 1) of course try to gain something… 2) to improve the italian situation with the others country of europe about the political and economical situation of the little italian city but also the big city if is possible… My association is Belgian and the start is not very sample… Now we presented 3 projects: two progress and one tender (kind of projects).
I hope that we will succeeed to work very well and we could to improve the situation. We would educate the city as to work with other european city and so for this reason we have in the EDS a scientific Committee to have also course and learn the best way to work well.
Now for me this is all!
If is possible to built a partecipate system to increase the contacts, to improve the possibility to live better and not to survive… so it would be fantastic
