Last meeting, with @pistillostefano, was a good surprise to me. I really appreciated how he spoke about his life and his choices. His aim wasn’t to suggest a way of living, or studying, or working, but he managed to inspire us with his sincerity. He didn’t propose himself as a model, but to be honest it’s probably been one of the most interesting meetings I’ve ever been to: I feel like we had a real conversation, it was really effective.
I always demand the best from me, in everything I do, and that’s why I’ve always tried to get the best results as possible, for example the best marks at school (and now at University), but I hope I can have in my life the same contagious passion and love for his work (and his life) that he has.
I also totally agree with him when he says that at University his idea was to try to catch as many opportunities as he could as personal growth, and I’m sure this project is the perfect example.
As many of you said, it’s highly important to keep our mind and our body active, in order to stimulate them. I’m a black belt in Judo, I was part of a Ski Club during Middle School and High School and I played tennis for a few years (even though my biggest passion has always been football, which I play whenever I can).
@desa The Idiot by Dostoevsky is probably one of my favourite books, together with The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov (I highly recommend it, especially if you like Russian literature).
Looking forward to next meeting!

I’m Paolo, born in Milan but raised in Turin, where I attended the Liceo Classico Cavour and the Politecnico. I graduated in Mechanical Engineering, and this is my second semester of the Master’s Degree in the same field.
I’ve always been attracted by challenges, and everything that could broaden my mind and improve my knowledge and skills. I find stimulating to be under pressure, and in a competitive environment, and that’s why I chose what at time was probably the best High School in Turin and almost certainly the most difficult one: I couldn’t have made a better decision, since it made me love Greek lyric, discover Physics but most of all understand and learn, no matter the topic. After that, following the same process had made me decide to go to Liceo Cavour, I chose Politecnico, and especially what it was told me that was the most difficult field, Mechanical Engineering, and after the past three years and a half I can say for sure I made the right decision again. Looking for new challenges, in 2018 I spent a semester in the USA, thanks to the SEC-U project promoted by Politecnico, and there I found the same ambition and the love for competition as I have, and really motivated teachers.
This initiative seems to me to be the perfect way to interact with other smart and determined people, and at the same time a great opportunity to go where all the things that I love (passion, hardworking, innovation) actually live.
Really looking forward to attending the first meeting!
