Would you like to discover one of the most attractive place in Italy? If yes, follow me in this little trip across the Lazio region. But first, where is exactly Lazio?
Lazio is an Italian region located in the center of the country, the second most populated after Lombardia, and home to Rome. Capital city and center of Italy's political life due to the presence of the government and the Parliament. It is also the Catholic world center due to the presence of Vatican.
Le Marche is a quite unknown region located between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine mountains in the centre of Italy. I wish you could feel the same excitement that I feel while I am writing about it. That I can let you smell, taste and feel the sensation of this magnificent area. Our virtual trip throughout the Le Marche region starts with the question: what can we see there?
Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world. However, its region Île-de-France is not as well-known as most people assume that the region is just Paris its suburb, when actually there are forest and unique historical sites. The best example of this are the castles and parks of the region as they reflect the historical importance and richness of the region.
Without further ado, here are my most see castles and parks of Île-de-France:
With around 3.6 million inhabitants, the Northern Region of Portugal accounts for almost 35% of Portugal's resident population, 39% of national exports and about 29% of the national economy's GDP. The North region is the most industrialised in Portugal, originating 43 percent of the Portuguese exports. It is no longer just traditional sectors that show an exporting vocation. Wood, electrical and electronic products are beginning to discover the foreign markets and the advantages of internationalisation.
Equipped with good communication and internationalisation infrastructures, (such as roads, motorways, an international airport and the second biggest Port terminal of Portugal) and having a qualified network of science and technology equipment, the North of Portugal lives with open doors to the world and with an eye to the future.
The Italian region Veneto is composite and multifaceted: it discloses a picturesque patchwork of landscapes, traditions, cultures and flavours. Surrounded by the Adriatic Sea, the Po Valley and the Alps, the Veneto displays some major subregions, each of them characterised by its own environment, landscape and urban development.
The mountainous Northern area features social and economic characteristics that are typical of the area around the Alps, that is, a low population density, lands not particularly suited for agriculture and slow industrialisation; however, in the Northern part of the Veneto region many important holiday resorts are to be found.

Francesco Foglia, Italian journalist and FEDRA Young Regional Ambassador for Calabria region, submitted a petition on fighting the spread of the pine processionary moth to the European Parliament calling for the development of a European plan to tackle and prevent this problem.
The pine processionary, a defoliating moth commonly found in southern Europe, is a highly destructive species for pine trees, and is considered to be one of the biggest dangers facing Mediterranean pine forests. Moreover, national and regional provisions are not sufficient to tackle the problem, as they focus on short-term measures.

Kosovo, located in the Balkans region of Europe, has experienced tremendous economic growth over the last decade and the government is working to strengthen the market economy through a clear European perspective.
FEDRA met with Ambassador Bernard Nikaj, Kosovo’s Ambassador in Brussels, to discuss about regional development, priority sectors and
EU funding opportunities.
Overview of Kosovo:
Kosovo is composed of 38 municipalities and is one of the most decentralized country in the Western Balkans. Most of the functions related to the every-day life of the citizens are under the competence of the municipalities. And thus, a lot of work is being done on the professionalization of the municipal administrations so that the foreign investors can easily interact with the local level. A big step towards a more modern administration system has been made when business registration offices were opened in all the municipalities over the past few years. The outcome of this progress is that it is now possible for companies to register a business in only 1 day.
