Letizia Ialini is responsible for coordinating aspects of student life from housing to volunteering to internships. She liaises with local housing providers to ensure quality accommodation and services to all CEA Florence students, and serves as a resource for students for all housing issues.
Letizia's experience allows her to provide expert support to colleagues in creating the student event calendar and in identifying fruitful opportunities for students, both as volunteers through the CEA C'È initiative, or as interns as requested by Florence's returning Faculty-Led programs.
Letizia studied Economics at the University of Florence. During her university career, she moved to Bournemouth, England where she worked as a trainee in the financial department of an industrial company. This first experience abroad sparked her interest in traveling and learning, leading her to continue her studies for an academic year in Australia. Letizia greatly appreciated the opportunity to learn a new language, travel, and make friends around the world.
Prior to joining CEA in 2009, Letizia gained employment experience managing the technical office of PratoTrade, a branch of the Industrial Union of Prato, organizing expositions for national and international trade fairs. She also worked for a Florentine cooking school, and has worked with American students in study abroad schools in Florence for over three years. In her spare time, Letizia enjoys cooking, reading, and traveling.
Letizia loves to help students connect with Italian culture. She thinks that overcoming the challenge of being immersed in a new and different culture and learning diverse ways of living results in personal growth and enhanced flexibility that will help students in their professional and personal lives.
