Ten Italian students visit the brand new RAI UK studios

LONDON – The headquarters of the Italian television channel RAI have just moved to a fancy building at Four Millbank that also holds the SKY studios and the BBC Parliament channel. They are now situated very close to Westminster. The new RAI UK offices have not been inaugurated yet, the group was the first to unofficially visit them. The students were in London on an internship of journalism. They had the chance to interview Marco Varvello, the chief correspondent of RAI in the UK.

Mr Varvello said: “We make from two to eight news spots a day. The crew of the newsroom is made up of myself and my collegue, plus two cameramen and the computer technicians”.

Journalists now have a new role: they don’t belong to a single channel anymore, but to the whole company. Thanks to new digital technologies, the newsmaking process takes less time (also due to the spending review that RAI has recently launched).

The students asked Mr Varvello about Primo Approdo, the project created by the Italian Embassy in London that helps young Italians to settle down and find a good job without being exploited. He has made a news spot about the project and explained that more than 200,000 Italians ask the Embassy for help every year.
