Hi everybody and welcome to the first UniversityBlog of SSML!

We are pleased to present to you this great initiative which has been created by the talented, one and only, Prof. Jones. I’m sure you all know her very well…how could you not?

So, this project basically consists in inviting the readers to discover more and more about our dear Apulia, our territory, beautiful Italy in general and everything you can discover here. Of course, as we are a “languages” University, we write all our articles in English and we do comparisons with other countries too; habits, holidays and so much more!

But, hey, stay tuned because we have looots of wonderful ideas coming, so always keep an eye on our dedicated “Magazine” section on the University website (

We wanted to start as soon as possible and what better time than the so beloved and eagerly-awaited festive season? A little note for all the Grinches out there: don’t go crazy, we will give you some non-Christmassy articles soon.

That’s it! I really hope you all are going to support and enjoy this project as much as we do. Let us know what you think (we accept compliments and positive feedback only, obviously …only joking!) Thank you for your attention and enjoy reading!
