Inside/out: Carlotta Zanzottera

Carlotta Zanzottera is an anthropology student and works behind the bar in EKKO.

“I was completely alone when I came to Utrecht. My only friend here said to me: if you want to meet some new people, you should to come to EKKO with me. So I applied for a job behind the bar and I’m currently combining my study anthropology with volunteering here. Before I started, I had never worked behind a bar. I was like: I’m so lost! What is this drink, a BACO? But the people at EKKO are great to me. Now, I’m at the point where I can take orders in Dutch, because I start to understand it. Sometimes I listen to people talking Dutch, start thinking in Italian and respond to my colleagues in English. In front of the ‘kassa’ I often go ‘uno, due, tre…’ At the end of the evening, I don’t even know which language I’m speaking.”
