Francesco Pestrin

Hello everybody! My name is Francesco Pestrin and I’m 17 years old. I currently reside in a town near Udine, a small city in the north-eastern part of Italy. I’m attending the fourth year at “C. Percoto High School”, specifically called “Scienze Umane (opz. economico-sociale)”: this means that its main subjects are politics, economics, anthropology, and sociology. This is my first year in the Dual Diploma Program and choosing to complete it only in a couple years was not simple: I knew I would have worked hard, and I immediately understood that the word “easy” needed to be erased from my dictionary. But I felt I could make it, I was enthusiastic. And I’m retaining this enthusiasm now, too. Being part of all this is fabulous and inspiring.
I’ve been playing the piano since I was 7, first in a music school and then in the “J. Tomadini” Conservatory: this is one of my primary passions and I’m not interested in playing classical music only, but I like also blues and jazz. I usually give a hand to the local church playing either the harmonium or the organ. Another passion I share with a few friends is filmmaking, and I’m aspiring to become a movie director and/or screenwriter because I guess this is one of the most perfect jobs to express themselves.
