Hi, now that's a tricky question.
I'm 18 and I live in Italy, where I'm finishing to attend the high school. In my life I think I want to become an armourer, living shaping metal to make armours or other items (iron gates, widows, etc..).
My mom is trying to oblige me to attend to a university and so I'm looking for any european university that can provide the adequate knowledge (be it theorical and/or preferibly practical).
My level of english is quite fair (Cambridge FCE) and I think that I can attend most of the lessons in egnlish laguage.
Let's put it in the rough way: I want to work metals by hand and I'm searching someone that coild teach me to do that =).
I appreciate any suggestion (be it a university or an armourer looking for an apprentice).
