it's always better to find information about social life, folklore, costs, welfare, culture shocks, in a national tourist office or at the national embassy

Final comments
Erasmus program is really great, I think that the most important think in this kind of project is share multicultural information and experience. This experience has helped me to act, react, organize, compare myself with an environment completely different. From this point of view, after being in contact with different European and international cultures in a such different context like the Finnish one, I feel really more mature, more independent, flexible, more than stronger. But culture shock’s effect is so strange and unconscious field of life: Values, beliefs, attitudes, history, climate, religions, family type, norms and law, geography, languages, idioms, gender, regional and ethnic habits, gender, social classes, age, profession, cultural background, personal experience… what other adjectives have I to add? And the levels of awareness of culture? We usually don’t take care on it but every second that we pass in our life we get new experiences, from whatever surround us, it’s so incredible. And in a foreign context you have, as I think you know, from your past how many inputs you can receive in your day life! I tried from the first moment I have been in Finland to walk the way of the process of adapting in another culture, made by flexibility, tolerance, compromising, empathy, ethnocentrism, awareness, understanding, acceptance (some time really, really hard), respect, selecting and adapting the experience to my culture and trying to bring part of my culture in front of the other, trying to eliminate my stereotypes and create my own view in a dynamic way. The satakunta polytechnic in Rauma has been more than a single event. it's not important wherever you go in erasmus. The most important think is that you go.

Course recommendations
The Satakunta Polytechnic is not an University , but a polytechnic (emh… well, of course), a kind of higher education introduced not so many years ago in northern European states, that is not present in Italy yet, where teachers try to give a more practical approach to the studies, linked with the local industries. Courses are organized in not only few frontal class, in that kind of lesson where the information are transmitted only by the figure of the professor; but here I tried for the first time the PBL system (Problem Based Learning). PBL is a teaching method where students have to face against a problem and organized in a team, research and individual study, they have to resolve all together it. There is not 1000 pages to study for an exam for every single university credit, but there is a big work on internet research, production of research, small thesis, personal and group presentations. Even if I have to say that I haven't learned so many concept, I have to tell you that all the subject I studied there are very interested and useful for the work's world: how to make public presentations. It is a way of teaching that stimulate in my opinion creativity a makes a person conscious of everything is learned. I really liked it.

The best night spots in Rauma were the Domino, the Nick Havanna, the Studio:they were disco pub with ot disco or live music or karaoke. you can find also a cafe' in new rauma like maffi's or an irish pub. in old rauma there are a lot of small and pictoresque cafes and restaurant. good restaurant are pizzieria la bamba, pizzeria rosso, the restaurant of cumulus hotel, rosso, buena vista. In old rauma there a chinese restaurant, but i think is very expensive for students. There are also several kebab pizzeria like danny's kebab and Antalya. other restaurant are Wanhan Rauman Kellari, Rustilan kartano, Restaurant Pursikasino, Villa Tallbo. Rauma is very famous in finland for some special events, above all during the summer. The most famous one is the RMJ, the Raumanmeri Midsummer Festivals, the most important rock festival in finland where finnish band play for 3 days under the midnight sun! there is also the Rauma jazz, rauma lace (events about traditional laces, festivo (another music event)
