Academic programs

 I came to study at the MPES in order to fill my life with things that had previously been lacking: dynamism, variety, resistance to stereotypes, activation of my intellectual and spiritual growth. I took what I myself was then open towards. However, I will always be grateful for the start I dared to make: to work on something that did not yet have a system of developed algorhythms – that is a hope for the victory of Good. To work on myself and for the people
