According to the World Happiness Report, a yearly survey of the state of global happiness, commissioned by the United Nations, Denmark is often ranked as the “happiest country in the world”. While studying photography in Denmark in 2014, Italian Giulia Mangione had to work on a final project. Most of her classmates went to far away
countries. Giulia decided to stay to understand what made Denmark the happiest country in the world. “People often ask me if the Danes are really the happiest people in the world. I still don’t have an answer to this. But I know what I like about the Danes. I like that they use cemeteries as places to celebrate life more
than death. I like their innate sense of freedom in being what they want
to be. I like the fact that Danes go to ‘højskole’ (High School) to learn
something for life, to be aware of what they are good at and what makes
them happy.
