August 2017

Patricia Michetti is an accountant for Mitsubishi Electric Europe in Italy. She belongs to the Finance and Administration Department and, in her role as an accountant specialist, deals with supplier accounts and expenses reports.

Today Patricia had lunch with her colleagues at a restaurant in the Offices Centre nearby the Italian Branch. This restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes, from Mediterranean cuisine to fish and vegan foods. She ordered the fish skewer, as fish dishes are some of her favourites. "Sometimes I bring packed lunches from home (like a salad with tomato and tuna or cheese) but on Tuesdays and Fridays especially I like going out with my colleagues to eat fish, sushi etc. in nearby restaurants", she comments.

The Italian Branch office is located in Agrate Brianza, near Milan. Milan is home to the Duomo, one of Italy's most famous symbols. The Duomo is right in the heart of Milan, and is dedicated to St. Mary of the Nativity (Santa Maria Nascente). It is the third largest Catholic church in the world by surface area, after Saint Peter's Basilica in the Vatican and the Seville Cathedral.
