(Brantabee實習生 鄭同學 東海大學會計碩二)
這次的實習計畫，我來到Brantabee公司，認識了許多熱情的同事，也因為這些同事的緣故，更加瞭解義大利。我在Brantabee這家工業設計公司負責收集台灣及中國市場的3D印表機製造商及工業設計公司資料，並替公司找出合適的合作夥伴。過程中，Tutor會藉機跟我們講解實務的運作以及企業形象識別系統（Corporate Identity System, CIS）的概念，讓我對品牌的建立有更深的一層認識。
TIP (Taiwan Italy International Internship Program) makes us more realize the habit, culture, food and lifestyle of Europe. It gives us more opportunity to experience the lifestyle and the local famous restaurant than other short-term Europe travel.
I experienced the journey and build my horizon by myself rather than just tried the popular restaurant that blogger suggested on the Internet. It will help us to build our taste and confident.
You will learn more if you keep observe and be curious on detail in Europe. Living in Europe, you will feel different lifestyle, something is more convenient than Taiwan, but something is not. However, if you feel something inconvenient, just ask your colleague or local people, you will find that the reason is they have their own traditional and habit. I realized that when we met some problem in different place, we can’t just solve it in the same way. Localization is an important concept on business.
In TIP, I had an internship in Brantabee and met many friendly colleagues who taught me a lot of knowledge about culture, food and wine. My job is to search the market of 3D printer manufacture and industrial design companies in Taiwan and China and to find out the partner for brantabee. In the process of the internship, my tutor told us the practice on business and the concept of CIS ( Corporate Identity System) by chance. It made me deeply know how to build a brand.
The Italian food culture is the most impressive experience in my internship. Because my colleague has good taste at “food” and we followed him to taste Italian food. Italian pay much attention to the original taste of ingredients and they are good at making fantasy taste by a few of ingredient. They don’t have many different kinds of way to present food and strong taste, but if you taste delicately, you will find that Italian food is harmonious and multilevel flavor. This is the most different part from Taiwan.
Italian have sensitive taste buds and I think it is relate to their life background and the culture of red wine. Italy is different from my thought. I always think that the price of Europe is higher than Taiwan, but when I lived in Italy, I found the price of ingredient in the supermarket is not always expensive than Taiwan, sometimes even cheaper. With cheap but high quality ingredient, it makes Italian have a conception of ingredients at young age; with the quality certification of various regions, it is easy for customers to identify the level of products; with the culture of drinking red wine and the various region of red wine with different taste style, it makes Italian’s taste more delicate. I think that is why Italian have sensitive taste buds. The journey is not only full of memories, but also full of harvest. I think that is my international perspective to deeply understand the cultural of Europe in the five months. I am willing to share the experience with my friend when I back to Taiwan.
