This year, I had the opportunity to travel with my students in an Erasmus+ project. In addition to the actual project activities, there were other intercultural activities related to VET professional domains of study.

One of these was a visit to stakeholder which helps local practice training for students. The four international team of students had an innovative way to learn how to make italian traditional pasta. These students learned how to work with special flour for pastas and exercised the special kneading techniques for dough. Furthermore, the students were guided on how to shape and cut the little cavatelli traditional faimous pasta.

As a food technology teacher, I was happy for my students' new learning acquisition and improving their skills during the mobility in Italy. In our country, our domain of study is also food technology for making different products as beer, bread, processing meat, milk or diary products.This was a nice experience for me and my students and I think that abroad exchange experience is the most powerful chance to learn, enrich ones knowledge, to see, feel and change the perspectives about directions for future career for youngters.
