10:00:05 Soundbite by Matilde Marchesi, an Italian citizen (in ENGLISH): I think these debates are really useful to interact with citizens, I think maybe there should be great number of them, but I appreciate them. I appreciate the interaction. 00:00:10
10:00:15 Soundbite by Duccio Mazzarese, an Italian citizen (in ENGLISH): I think it is actually very useful. The perception is that the citizens think that Europe is a bit far from their daily life; I think that this kind of involvement helps Europe to be promoted as a concept, and the citizens can understand what Europe can do for them. 00:00:25
10:00:40 Soundbite by Mirejia Mari, an Italian citizen (in ENGLISH): I hope that this debate rises more awareness in Italian citizen about more of the concept of Europe in general, and I hope that people start to realize that Italy is a part of a whole organization, it’s not Italy but Europe all together, and we need to stay together as a country, as Europe. 00:00:24
10:01:05 Soundbite by Matilde Marchesi, an Italian citizen (in ENGLISH): I expect to this debate to be comprehensive of citizen’s problems and supportive. I expect Commissioners listen to what we have to say. 00:00:11
10:01:17 Soundbite by Mirejia Mari, an Italian citizen (in ENGLISH): What I want to ask her is if she thinks that the different language in each country in Europe it’s going to be a big problem about Europe as a confederation all together. If she thinks that with the language difference if we ever going to be united within any different culture, if it’s going to change or if it is going to stay as it is now. 00:00:22
10:01:39 Soundbite by Matilde Marchesi, an Italian citizen (in ENGLISH): I think that interaction should also start from schools, and my question is how to enhance this interaction in schools and between kids also. 00:00:11
10:01:50 Soundbite by Mirejia Mari, an Italian citizen (in ENGLISH): Before I was told about this debates I never thought about Europe as a country all together I only though about Italy. If somebody asked me "Where are you from?" I never said “Europe” I always said “Italy”. So to me it raises more awareness and I just hope that this debate raises more awareness all together. 00:00:17
