Sarita Agerman, from the UK, chose Bologna on a whim for her Erasmus placement and never imagined she'd return after graduating. She speaks to The Local about being a Muslim in Italy and becoming a permanent resident.
What made you decide to return to Bologna after university?
I'd love to have a unique answer but I'm afraid I have to churn out the age-old cliché of returning to Italy for love.
I met a man while I was studying in Italy as an Erasmus student and came back after I'd graduated to be with him and to explore my interest in being an English teacher.
