Summary

Bachelor Course in International Communication Sciences (title of
my dissertation: "The Alluring Attitude of Advertising").
I have a special interest on writing and, as a result, I have created
two Blogs: The Wind Rose Blog

needing to come out and
also a glance at things. Then I have also created VerdeTiffany

Responsible for communicating with customers, assisting them in selecting the right product, performing financial transaction, check stock for items that are not on the shelf, labelling of items,windows fitting.
During my professional experience I have acquired important skills, such as mediation and listening skills, attention to details to activate and stimulate the sense sphere.
I was charged of the "perfect fitting" of the shop window: this was a crucial assignement, considering the high-impact of communication which is conveyed by the peculiar use of shop windows, a brilliant way to shake potential consumers. I have used some special hints and information aquired during my studies at University, regarding Communication, Marketing and Advertising.
Accordingly, for my Bachelor course I have written a final dissertation connected to the subject, "The Alluring Attitude of Advertising".

Bachelor Course in International Communication Sciences

Università degli Studi di Catania, Faculty of Foreign Languages

The Bachelor Course was mainly devoted to the study of Foreign languages (English, French), Italian literature, IT, different subjects connected to communication (journalism, cinema, marketing, advertising, etc).For my final dissertation I have chose a personal topic according my inclinations, titled "The Alluring Attitude of Advertising": the dissertation is a sort of journey inside and around the world of advertising, presenting an analysis of some advertising campaigns to enlighten this process and its fascinating language. In the dissertation I have also inquired some interesting studies, both in the past and in more recent years, to underline the manipulating aspect of advertising which is also the link to another important background of the work: the emotional side.             The emotive dimension, in fact, is really stimulated and also emphasized in advertising, such as the brand image itself, another subject of research, where values and identities are articulated and spread.

Job-related skills

During my professional experience as a saleswoman I have acquired important skills, such as mediation and listening skills, attention to details to activate and stimulate the sense sphere.
As a result of my interest on writing, I have created a blog named The Wind Rose Blog (http://thewindroseblog.wordpress.com/): it is a inner voice needing to come out , the auspice to follow the inspiration route and also a glance at things. The Wind Rose Blog is the euphoria of writing, a shiver of chaotic words finding their place. Some of the articles of the blog has also been included on an online Magazine (for example: http://www.passaparola.info/2014/08/18/sicilia-etn... ). Recently I have also created a new Blog, VerdeTiffany (https://verdetiffany.wordpress.com/), with articles related to fashion, life stories and wellness.
