Program: Internship
Period: Sept 1,2016- Sept 30,2017


I am an intern photographer and assistant at Accademia Riaci.
I quit my job as a photographer in Japan and came here with my husband who wanted to work at a restaurant in Italy. I took a Gelato Internship Course at Accademia Riaci meanwhile.
After my new challenge, however, I began to think that there was more possibility in the photography field in Italy so I decided to go back to my area of expertise and restart.
I love coffee, so I enjoy visiting coffee bars in and around town.
I hope I can let you know useful and helpful Italian daily-life and school information in my reports.

Internship 18-Internship Course 2016


(Penny’s report)
I open my heart to experience everything and then get a lot of enrichment and happiness.
The teachers are always willing to teach us how to make leather bags well.
We usually discuss together and try to make any new possibilities ways. And the secretaries of school always provide solutions for student questions.
I am very enjoy my life to study bag making course in Italy, and a lot of thanks for my teachers and friends.
My dream is to become a leather craft master. Before I arrive here, what I think in my mind is how to enhance my professional ability and improve self-achievement.
But now, I found the reasons that why I make this decision to come in Firenze, because I believe that make beautiful bags can make people more smile and happy.
To become a leather craft master is my mission in life, and I love it.
