Ion Rezusta’s Success Story

Ion Rezusta’s Erasmus experience

  • Name and Surname: Ion Rezusta
  • Company: CSCS

Why did you choose Pistoia?

Coming to Pistoia for an Erasmus exchange programme was one of the wisest decision of my life, because Pistoia is a quiet and beautiful town and you immediately feel like being home. It is very interesting sitting around the city and finding a lot of Erasmus students to share tips about life in Italy, where to go and what to visit during the weekend. If you want to do a traineeship abroad, Pistoia is the best place, because companies are quite small, very family-based and you have the possibility to learn some basics in italian.

Why did you choose ITALYMOBILITY ?

The Italymobility staff is located in Pistoia and the support they give to people from other countries to their work experience in Italy is magnificent! The staff helped me filling all the documents requested by my school and was always helpful when I needed some extra information! They offer good accommodations in shared apartments and if you have an emergency, they will respond as soon as possible.

What to do in free time?

The best thing to do in your free time is …sightseeing! You can visit places like Cinque Terre, Montecatini Alto, Florence, Verona, Rome quite easily, thanks to the very good geographical position of Pistoia!!
You have great cities, beaches and mountains at such a short distance! Then, I will suggest to go to eat Italian food and enjoy Tuscany products!

Why did you choose Erasmus?

It is a unique experience in life because you meet many new people, you have the possibility to learn a foreign culture and to visit “exotic” places. You get one of the best memories of your life.

How was your company?

My colleagues were all very nice and I have learned a lot, especially how I should behave in a office and how to use new IT applications and programmes.

Subjec t: Coronavirus – exceptional measures with regard to Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps projects

In the context of the measures taken by the Italian Government to contain the spread of the Coronavirus infection in Northern Italy, I would like to inform you that the measures announced in our note of 31 January 2020 (ref. Ares(2020)619972) shall be considered fully applicable to any mobility in affected areas of programme and partner countries where the virus is detected and which are considered at risk. In line with the abovementioned note, National Agencies are requested to inform the participating organisations concerned and instruct them to contact the individual participants who already are in, or are planning to leave for the affected areas within the coming days or weeks. Participants should also be reminded of the assistance that can be provided by embassies, consulates and honorary consulates in the country of their stay. It is for the participating organisations and individuals to decide on the course of action to take in the light of national travel advice and repatriation schemes. The National Agencies should however monitor closely, in cooperation with the participating organisation, if the area of the planned mobility can be considered safe by the time of travel for the entire duration of the mobility or project activity. Please be reminded that National Agencies may apply the force majeure clause to activities taking place in any affected area as well as to incoming mobility from these areas, as foreseen in the template of the grant agreement between National Agencies and the beneficiaries and as defined in the programme guide and other contractual documents. National Agencies may thereby cancel, postpone or move activities planned in such regions in the most flexible way, notwithstanding the respect of the general legal framework applying to Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps. Given the exceptional circumstances, the same principles can be applied also to any incoming mobility from affected regions. However, when assessing additional costs linked to a case of force majeure, the National Agencies should apply the provisions established in section 3.16 of the Guide for National Agencies. Justified repatriation costs will be accepted as exceptional costs, whereas normal reporting requirements apply.
