Cecilia (aged 33) left Argentina in 2017 to Italy.
Cecilia left Argentina to join her Argentinian boyfriend who won a scholarship in Italy. She is an artist (ceramist) and she babysits as well. She comes from a small city in the North-West of Argentina where she was teaching ceramic and she migrated for love.
During her interview, she declares that « every time you go out of your comfort zone it’s a change » and she says that she feels more mature each time she goes back home, which is what she calls a « good transformation ».
For her, the object that best represents her migration experience is the handmade necklace that she made and whose green color recalls her grandmother’s eyes: she is particularly close to her grandmother.
