Headline, July 14 2020/ ITALY : ''' '' STUDENTS ! JOBS SURPRIZES '' '''



BRILLIANT THINKING AND GIRL POWER : In the Developing World - say, Proud Pakistan, the students best wake up and start considering some very new options.

SPILLOVER EFFECT : Lexicon makes a master point. Impact that seemingly unrelated events in one nation can have on other economies, will be very, very long in coming, if it ever does.

In just one year, Peduzzi now owns some 20 donkeys -15 of which are pregnant - as well as about 10 cows, five calves and five heifers.

From million malls to meadows : A growing number of young Italians are choosing the farm life and building innovative businesses. For all students in the Developing World : that's something to think about.

THE NUMBER OF YOUNG PEOPLE / STUDENTS choosing a life in the countryside is on the rise in Italy.

Despite the hard work and early starts, they say farming is no longer an undesirable way to make a living.

While her friends sleep off hangovers, a 23-year-old Vanessa Peduzzi, for instance, is doing a dawn check on her livestock, one of a growing number of Italian youths ditching the fast lane for a farmer's life.

''It's a tiring, demanding job but I like it,'' she told AFP as she walked through the wood-lined pastures high above Lake Como in northern Italy to show off the building she is slowly restoring and transforming into a farmhouse. ''I choose this life. This is where I want to be, surrounded by nature and animals.''

Peduzzi is a trained chef but choose to become a donkey and cow breeder instead of Alpe Bedolo, some 813 meters [2,600 feet] above sea level, near the border with Switzerland. ''I started last year with two little donkeys. I didn't have any land or a stable so I had a friend lend me a meadow but the situation has got a bit out of hand,'' she laughed.

Peduzzi now owns some 20 donkeys - 15 of which are pregnant - as well as about 10 cows, five calves and five heifers.

''Not an easy choice''
The youngster is among a growing number of urban Italians now choosing to run agricultural businesses., Jacopo Fontaneto, of Italy's main agriculture union Voldiretti, said after years mountain life being out of favor among Italians, ''we have seen a good return of young people in last 10 to 20 years.''

There has been a 12% rise in the number of people under 35 at the helm of agricultural businesses in the past five years, Coldiretti said in a study of data from last year.

It said women make up almost a third of the total new entries to farming. The sector was seen as ''ripe for innovation'' and working that land ''is no longer considered the last resort of the uneducated'' but something parents would be proud of.

Nonetheless, Fontaneto admits, ''It's not an easy choice.'' Instead of computer screens or checkout tills, those on remote pastures spend their days looking at the ''the most beautiful countryside you can dream of'' but it is also ''a life of sacrifice,'' with little opportunity for wild nights on the town, he said.

But younger people can also help modernize the profession by bringing in new technologies or investing in online sales.

Though it can be a lonely existence, Peduzzi has made friends on the job : all of her donkeys and cows have names, she said fondly, as she introduced Beatrice, Silvana, Giulla, Tom and Jerry.

Wearing a colourful bandana and striding through the long grass. she said her father was not pleased with her new career choice at first because he knew the challenges involved but he has since come around.

Peduzzi rises early. From 6.30 am, she is with her animals, checking that they are well and giving them water.

''It's not a walk in the park. Sometimes, you have to call the vet, help the animals to give birth,'' she said. ''When people my age are getting ready on a Saturday to go out for drinks, I/m getting ready to go to the barn.''

But Peduzzi said she would much prefer to spend any day of the year in the fields than to have to face a shopping trip in town filled with noise, traffic and smog. ''Here, I feel like a goddess,'' she said smiling.

For now, she sells animals and meat, but is hoping to expand soon to milking her cows and donkeys to make cheese.
