Svedesi Dentro, translated into English becomes “Swedish Inside”, was born one year ago as a little blog with the idea of collecting Italian people who do not feel good about living in Italy nowadays. People who feel like strangers in their own country, due to a general seniority of the Italian system, that include politics, society and human behaviours. Italy is old right now; it is old concerning values, human freedoms and innovative thinking.
To begin with, when the website was opened, the purpose was to make a virtual connection between Italian people who love Swedes, appreciating Swedish easy way of life and their ethical behaviours. That is why we choose the name Svedesi Dentro: to be a Swede for us means being a better person.
Today, our little blog has become a real community, with more than 230 members and more than 13,000 visitors. On the community website people can participate in writing stories, articles, about experiences of life all around the world; people can even send pictures and videos. The community is a sort of land where people can feel a part of a new world, made of people who live in an ethical way and behave with other people and at work with colleagues, who live their lives respecting others. A place to discuss about everything: society, politics, technology, culture and friendship.
After one year of life our community has focused on two main themes: the first theme is to keep in contact with Italian people living in Italy and Italian people living and working in Sweden. They can describe experiences of life and funny episodes that make sense of the differences about living outside Italy. The second theme is to offer good advice to Italian students who are expecting a student exchange in Sweden: they search practical information such as accommodation, food, bank, health & doctors – anything concerning daily life.
We are now also working on creating a Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) database where people can find useful answers to their most common questions about Sweden, practical procedures for daily Swedish dues.
This is in short Svedesi Dentro – a sort of SOCIAL EXPERIMENT. Our dream is to become a meeting point for all those people who want to learn all the positive and negative aspects of living and working in Sweden and try to bring all those aspects to Italian life, trying to transform Italy into a better country.
