Relazione progetto C.H.A.GALL
20-day stay in Salamanca
I was in Spain from the 23th of April to the 14th of May with some other students of my school, a group of 20. We all were selected for an Erasmus project called C.H.A.GALL.
The place we stayed in was Salamanca, a small town three hours away from Madrid.
This has been an amazing opportunity given us by our school Liceo Majorana in Latina.
The project is about the role of the Art Gallery Manager (AGM) and has allowed students to learn about it. What an AGM basically does is to organize an exposition, and that is what we have learnt to do during our 20-day stay in Salamanca.
The lessons were in Spanish, in a private art gallery, whose owner, commissioner and photographer, Eduardo Nuca was sometimes our professor.
The rest of the time the lessons were held by Andrea Ruano, who is Eduardo’s assistant and also an artist and model. They have explained everything about this new job.
The experience included guided tours in Salamanca and in other Spanish cities such as Toledo, Leon and Madrid.
Something I was pretty happy about was that we had our free time in which we could do whatever we liked. I had shopping, I slept when I was very tired, I went around finding cool places to see.
Moreover I’ll never forget how kind the woman who hosted us was. She literally said we could consider her house, our own.
What this experience has left in me is a strong sense of independence and confidence I would have never had if I had not taken this chance, and also the desire to travel a lot during my life.
