Antonio Fatone: his American dream and desire to learn

The Luiss student talkes about his experiences abroad and the importance of internationalization


Luiss student Antonio Fatone is leaving for New York to work as an International Legal Intern at Dunnington Bartholow & Miller, LLP. “There is always something to study because mechanisms are not always the same, the United States has a different legal system. And this is what makes it a great challenge.”

Antonio is registered for the single-cycle master’s degree program in Law and chose to major in International Law, which first brought him to study in Singapore and then at Fordham University.

“The six months I spent in Singapore were the best. I had the chance to live in a place I had never even seen: more than an academic experience, I would say it was a life experience,” says Antonio of his time at Singapore Management University. Then, just before going on an exploration of the Indonesian jungle, Antonio learned he had been selected for the Double Degree with Fordham University.

During his final academic year, Antonio obtained an LL.M with honors while in New York. “It was a dream that I could have never imagined would come true, not even during orientation day my first year!”

Antonio has fond memories of his years at Luiss, especially “the atmosphere of the rugby team that allowed me to earn the Ludovico Bruschini scholarship for academic and athletic merit, and my first exam, Constitutional Law with Professor Raffaele Bifulco, that gave me the motivation to keep going and give my best.”

Antonio advises students interested in a similar career path to “take advantage of all the international opportunities that Luiss offers. Don’t be afraid to travel and put yourself to the test.”

Antonio is currently writing his thesis on Antitrust Law with Professor Daniele Gallo, comparing laws in Singapore, the United States and the European Union.

“Within the next year, I plan on taking the bar exam to be able to practice in the United States. My personal goal is to keep growing and improving both personally and professionally. One of my dreams is also to learn Chinese.”
