Roma Tre University

I came to Ingenio for the first time last year, during the PhD days. There, I discovered a very active, young and captivating research environment, where everybody tried, with success, to make people coming from other institutes feel at home. Mindful of that experience, I decided to come back in Ingenio for a visiting period of three months. I am very grateful for the warm hospitality I received from every single member of Ingenio. It took me just a few days to feel the sense of belonging that characterizes the Ingenio community, also favoured by the organization of leisure activities outside work time. These events allow to both forge closer friendship relations and find a common research ground to collaborate among people coming from very different nationalities, experiences and backgrounds. Of course, being located within the wonderful frame of Valencia is of great help, too. It was a very positive experience for me, in all of its aspects, that I will hardly forget.
