No matter where we are and what we do, daily affair is always a substantial aspect of our life. One more glance at the people or things that we happen to see in our daily routine will show the meaning and atmosphere this place has to offer. We wouldn’t like to show you a plate of pasta which you could see everywhere around the world; we’d like to show you how food and drinks are served and present themselves in a small corner of Friuli Venezia Giulia..

  • Finding your own coffee shop in Italy is the first thing to do when you arrive! Yaling (Udine)
  • One of the things I want to enjoy as much as possible before leaving. Marion (Trieste)
  • Fresh sea food weirdly makes me remember that the sea is not so far. Marion (Udine)
  • I took this picture because I could not believe Italians put Nutella on pizza...even though both things are very Italian. Mona (Trieste)
  • What a strange feeling, when you have never heard of a language before and it looks unfamiliar, but you somewhat understand it at the same time. Mona (Udine)
  • When I was a child, my family was often on vacation in Tuscany. Close to my house in Udine, this was a welcome reminder of these childhood memories in the otherwise mountainous and for me unfamiliar surroundings. Mona (Udine)
  • It’s not about money. It’s about sharing what you love with your audience. Other people enjoying your passion is the most valuable currency. Thomas Jespers (Udine)
  • Some music and a nice pair of shoes, you don’t need anything else for a good evening. These people started dancing in the middle of Udine and didn’t care about someone taking a picture. Thomas Jespers (Udine)
  • Buying delicious and fresh fruit products on the market is typical for Mediterranean countries, but in Udine, the canvas blinds protect the vegetables from rain, not sun. (Udine)
  • I am surprised at the class and taste with which elderly Italian men and women dress. Is taking care of oneself and each other the secret of this couples relationship? Lena Berndes (Udine)
  • A typical view in FVG, but not in many other places - people drinking local wine or the typical Spritz outside in their winter jackets. Lena Berndes (Udine)
  • Friendship is about doing things together, but also about doing nothing together. No worries, only laughs. Thomas Jespers (Udine)
  • The fishermen from Grado take a day off on Sunday, but in the evening, they prepare everything for the upcoming week of fishing. It’s a tough job. Thomas Jespers (Grado)
  • Hot, lazy sunday afternoon. What better place to be than Udine Castle for a little rest? And what better place to sleep well than – say – next to a well? Don't forget to bring a magazine to ward off the sun! Abhichoke (Udine)
  • Although it is not the most beautiful sunrise, it’s our original daily experience. Sunrise marks the beginning of each day - each single, special, or ordinary, or tedious day for everyone in Udine or in any other place around the world. Jingyang (Udine)
  • Seen or not, some certain sort of beauty is always there, at every time and in every corner of the world. Jingyang (Udine)

Wanderer’s Glimpse is part of the bigger project called“La RicercaVisuale 2.0 in FVG”, a project on visual research about Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
Our aim is not to promote the region by showing what people want to see but what we felt as worse presenting you : a bottom up vision of Friuli Venezia-Gulia. Therefore, it seemed necessary to us to involve as many as possible other wanderers arriving to the region. With the hashtag #Wanderersglimpse, you are invited to share your pictures of the region through instagam or facebook.
The photos shown in “Wanderer’s glimpse” were collected from students from different departments, countries and backgrounds. They provide a new perspective on the region as they enhances the way in which FVG is perceived by outsiders and therefore challenges how locals see their homeland. With those pictures, we want to show a new point of view on the region, an ingenuous, refreshing and genuine one. We want to express, through pictures, how we feel here and show what is representative of the region to us. The photos provide a new perspective on the region as they enhances the way in which FVG is perceived by outsiders and therefore challenges how locals see their homeland.

Eurocompetence II
Euroculture is a two-year, multi-university master programme focused on the study of modern European society, culture and politics in a global context. We focus on questions of cultural identities and social values that play a vital role in today’s debates about Europe and its place in the world.
The main focus of Eurocompetence II is on developing a specific ‘Euroculture’ competence of inter- and transcultural communication. This is done by means of working on European cultural project management and the study of group-dynamics. For this part of the programme students are required to set up and conduct a cultural project of their own … and this is our students’ final project!
