Paolo participated in the September 2009 MediaStorm Storytelling Workshop
. He had the following to say about his experience:
I have just been given the most wonderful opportunity to become - for just seven days - part of a far-sighted and committed multimedia workshop with MediaStorm producers. Their creativity and enthusiasm are an inspiration. Their compelling vision in anticipating the global changes in multimedia storytelling put them at the forefront of their craft. Their high quality product is thought-provoking independent journalism at its best. I'm very grateful to have worked among them, however briefly, and I will bring much learning back to my own multimedia storytelling. Oh...by the way...it was seriously great fun.
