🇬🇧 Hello, this is Chikako. I am 25 years old from Japan. What made me decide to take this interior design course? It all started when I left the company last year. Originally, when I was 18, I went to an interior design vocational school for three years. I got a job at a jewelry company and had a gap of 2-3 years at my previous job. I was looking for a school where I could study abroad because I wanted to learn how to use colors and how to use interiors in a culture that is completely different from Japan. Then I found the Accademia Riaci website, saved up a year, and took a summer course. For a few weeks, I want to find a different perspective in Italy, the city of art.

🇯🇵 こんにちは、ちかこです。日本出身の25歳です。 私がこのインテリアデザインのコースを学ぶ事になったきっかけは 去年、会社を退職したことがきっかけです。元々18歳の時にインテリアデザインの専門学校に3年間通っていたのですがジュエリー会社に就職し前職で2〜3年ブランクが空いてしまった為転職活動の幅を広げるためにも勉強しなおそうとした事がきっかけです。日本とは全く違った文化での色の使い方やインテリアの使い方などを吸収したいと思い海外で学べる学校を探していました。そしてアカデミアリアチのサイトを見つけ一年貯金をしサマーコースを受けます。数週間ですが芸術の街イタリアで変わった視点を見つけていきたいです。

Interior Design Summer Course (n.3)

🇬🇧 In the third week, I launched the drawing in 3D. The Vectorworks I’m using is written in Italian, so I think it’s progressing slowly but steadily with the help of the interpreter and the extent of my understanding.
🇯🇵 三週目は図面を3Dで立ち上げました。使っているベクターワークスはイタリア語で記載されているので、なんとなく自分で把握している範囲と通訳さんの力を借りてゆっくりではありますが順調に進められているかなと思います。

🇬🇧 A free night theater was open for a limited time in a place like the square in front of the Uffizi Gallery. When I went there, a video that looked like a documentary film about nature was being shown. It seems that different movies are released depending on the day.
🇯🇵 現在期間限定でウフィツィ美術館前の広場のようなところで無料のナイトシアターが公開されていました。私が行ったときは自然のドキュメンタリー映画のような映像が公開されていました。日によって違う映画が公開されているようです。

🇬🇧 I spent the night in Florence with a friend. It was fun just walking around and seeing people singing opera along the way.
🇯🇵 夜のフィレンツェは友人と過ごしました。道中オペラを歌っている人がいたり歩いているだけで楽しかったです。

🇬🇧 The Duomo at night was beautiful and the whole city was beautiful with a different atmosphere from the daytime. It’s too hot during the day to see the scenery, so it’s nice to take a walk from the evening to the night.
🇯🇵 夜のドュオーモは日中とはまた変わった雰囲気で美しく街全体も綺麗でした。日中は暑すぎて景色どころでは無いので夕方から夜の散歩が気持ちいいです。

🇬🇧 I ate a “Fiorentina” at Trattoria Antichi Cancelli. The meat was tender and very delicious. The store clerk also had a nice smile.
🇯🇵 Trattoria Antichi Cancelliで食べてみたかったフィオレンティーナを食べてきました。お肉が柔らかくとっても美味しかったです。お店の店員さんも笑顔が素敵でした。

🇬🇧 When I was taking a walk in Florence, I found a mask shop with a very atmosphere. I looked it up and it seems that there is a mask festival in Venice from the end of February to March. If there is an opportunity to come to Italy next time, I would like to go at that time.
🇯🇵 フィレンツェを散歩していたらとっても雰囲気のある仮面のお店を見つけました。調べてみたらヴェネツィアで二月末から三月にかけて仮面フェスティバルがあるようです。次イタリアに来る機会があったらそのタイミングで行きたいなと思います。

🇬🇧 I went to a restaurant near my school that I had been interested in for a long time without researching anything and it happened to be vacant. The inside was very stylish and the staff was all very nice and pleasant. Also, all the food was delicious.
🇯🇵 ずっと気になっていた学校近くのレストランへ何も調べず予約無しで行ったらたまたま空いていました。中はとてもおしゃれで店員さんも皆さんとても素敵な笑顔で気持ちよかったです。また食事が全てとっても美味しかったです。

🇬🇧 Over the weekend, I went to the beach in Pisa with the girls from my apartment. The sea was very beautiful and spacious and it was very easy to spend. The bus from the beach to the station never came and we missed the return train, so we all had to wait until the first train. I’m glad I’m not alone, so I try to get home as early as possible when I travel alone.
🇯🇵 週末はアパートの女の子たちとピサのビーチに行ってきました。海はとても綺麗で広々としていてすごく過ごしやすかったです。帰りビーチから駅までのバスが全く来ず帰りの電車を逃してしまい、みんなで始発まで待つことになりました。一人じゃなくて良かったなと、一人旅行はなるべく早めの帰宅を心がけようと思いました。

🇬🇧 I stayed in Florence and finally went to see the birth of Venus. I had reserved a ticket to enter from 9:00 in the morning, so I could enter without queuing at all. It seems that it will start to get crowded around noon, so it was the correct answer to go in the morning. The inside is so big that even though I went to see it alone, it took me two hours. The fine carvings were so beautiful that I wanted to go again.
🇯🇵 フィレンツェに滞在してようやくヴィーナスの誕生を見に行ってきました。私は朝の9時から入場のチケットを予約していたので全く並ばずに入れました。お昼頃から混み始めるようなので朝に行って正解でした。中はとっても広く一人で見に行った私でも2時間はかかりました。細かな彫刻がとても綺麗でまた行きたいなと思いました。
