In addition, the "Primo Approdo"section of the consulate's home page contains a "PracticalHandbook of orientation to life in England/Wales", compiled bythe consulate with the help of experts, which addresses many ofthe issues covered at the meetings and is an indispensable aidfor orientation upon arrival in the country. The project,symbolically dedicated to the memory of Joele Leotta, a youngItalian murdered in Kent, aims to help Italians to operate inEngland with greater awareness and effectiveness, also with thehope that in the future they may return to Italy and make themost of the human and professional assets acquired. "PrimoApprodo" was conceived by the consulate general on theinspiration of Italian ambassador to London, PasqualeTerracciano. The idea emerged from the fact that increasingnumbers of young Italians move to England and Wales, especiallyto London, hoping to gain professional and linguisticexperience or to search out different job opportunities tothose currently offered by the continental labour market.However, young people often arrive in the country without localknowledge and sometimes without a solid grounding in thelanguage. Added to this is the huge amount of information onthe Internet, not always reliable, which often involves fraudsand scams, perpetrated by Italians as well as some unscrupulouslocal businessmen, quick to exploit eagerness andprofessionalism. vel.
