In this first article of the ImaginApulia’s blog you’ll find out what is ImaginApulia, which is our history starting from the experience we lived abroad and why you must follow us if you’re planning a trip to Puglia.
So, let’s start!
Here is Daria and Roberto, crew chiefs of this vessel named ImaginApulia.
For those of you who are wondering what is ImaginApulia, you must know that this first page of our logbook is just about that, answering to all (almost) the questions you may have on us and our project.
First of all: when ImaginApulia’s idea was born and who we are?
Daria is a Visual Designer and Roberto is a Video Maker. Both we are apulians with a past in the field of art and culture and an amazing experience abroad in our hearths, which has written our future in Puglia. In 2015 we landed, as European Volunteers, in the frozen country of Finland.
We have been one year in a small, rural, but very typical town called Kärsämäki, around 200 km far from the polar circle. There, in a place where there are more trees than people, where nature is still the wisper of souls, there, we have understood a lot.
After that we moved to a bigger city in southern Finland, Turku. Even if we loved Turku, for the first time, we started thinking about coming back to Italy.
We suddenly started to be aware about our origins, our native land and all we left. Living in our own little 35square meters flat we began every day more and more melancholic, and we also started thinking on how to direct all those feelings to an idea, a simple idea that was growing up in our minds.
Living abroad could be hard, also gives you a lot of different emotions and rewarding experiences, but coming back to Italy was probably the most difficult proof we faced, and then we had that idea which needed to be perfectly designed.
But life is full of surprises and one day, a normal boring day like any other, we found the answer to our question: how to realize our idea and finally come back to Italy.
The story continues with a lot of studies, bureaucracy and waitings, despite everything ImaginApulia was born on 25th of September 2017.
