Why this blog?

by felicitamodna82

I got the idea from a friend, an Italian journalist. He noticed I am plenty of ideas but I have no fix job at the University and I am not a journalist or a politician…so I would risk that many people could scream their ideas – no matter if good, average or bad -, covering my good ones. (hope this does not sound that arrogant…I think many of us have good ideas and don’t even get to try to share them!)
We discussed a lot about promoting valuable or beautiful things which are not well known and supported, starting from our homeland – the Provincia di Modena, from Dogana Nuova to Mirandola, from Marzaglia to Cavazzona. We went on discussing stereotypes, mistakes, misunderstandings…
Although he is convinced I should start a professional journalist career together with my current historian career, he advised me to open a blog: an informal way to share my ideas that don’t suit strict scientific publications and don’t need to involve myself as a practising journalist.
So here it is…I will start writing about “my little world”, my microcosm, and I will try to relate it to the macrocosm (Europe or the whole world, it depends). This does not mean I want to write extreme intellectual things. There are many wonderful aspects anybody can appreciate without stressing his/herself or without getting a sudden headache, but just relaxing and opening his/her mind and my blog.

I find this idea great, since many people often see me only as a researcher, or as an Italian, as a stupid football fan or anything else I sometimes show as my appearance. I am first of all a human being, I am simply a woman. I am very shy and complicated and many people are only able to see the instant appearance of myself instead of my person. I hope this blog idea turns out well, showing more sides of me!

Many thanks to the friend, Gabriele Testi, who made me think about blogging.
