Museum internship for two students
This gave me an insight into the history of a prestigious Italian motoring brand and a well-established company, the Fratelli Cozzi dealership. The museum was born thanks to the initiative of Dr. Pietro Cozzi, the current owner, who, in order to indulge his passion for the Alfa Romeo brand, decided to collect, from the 1950s onwards, a model chosen from among the brand's most prestigious, thus reaching a collection of 60 cars, which allowed the museum, currently managed by his daughter Elisabetta, to be opened in 2015.
Before starting the internship, I had many fears that I would be destined to do boring and unrewarding work. These fears turned out to be unfounded as, with the help of Dr Elisabetta Cozzi, I attended interesting meetings and events. In addition, I had the opportunity to carry out filing tasks and telephone and direct contacts with clients, which enabled me to overcome my natural shyness. Another important moment for me was when I was invited to write a PowerPoint presentation on the topic of female stereotypes.
I can therefore say that the experience was useful for my personal and cultural growth, and for all this I thank the people who made this experience possible: Dr. Pietro Cozzi, Dr. Elisabetta Cozzi, Dr. Laura Defendi and all the staff at the dealership.
Before starting the three-week period at the Fratelli Cozzi Museum, I thought I would have a not so interesting experience.
This period of school-to-work alternation was useful to learn about the world of work and especially the history of how the museum was born and developed. I have never been a car enthusiast, but seeing the passion of Dr Elisabetta Cozzi and Dr Pietro Cozzi, allowed me to get to know such an important Italian brand as Alfa Romeo.
During this time, my partner and I worked on the creation of a power point presentation, did archiving work on images and books in the museum's collection and, thanks to Dr Elisabetta Cozzi, took part in meetings and events.
