BIO: I was born in Italy, in the beautiful city of Turin. Since July 2008, I’m a proud Dutch resident, but I now live in London. My background is in World Politics and Journalism. I have been writing since I was a child, and I gained journalism experience by being editor of my high school paper, founding the college magazine PAX, and then collaborating with various publications across the web and across Europe. I lived in Aarhus, Denmark, for the first year of the Erasmus Mundus MA in Journalism, specialising in Multimedia Business Reporting at City University London in the second year. For the past few months I have been working full-time as a junior reporter for the B2B publication Global Trade Review – I think I can now call myself a journalist.
WHY I’M DOING THIS: I’m not a fan of blogging. I can hardly keep a journal. I need structure and a deadline because, like most writers, I’m lazy. I’m probably too lazy to keep a blog too, that’s why this is mostly my journalism portfolio, with a dedicated “Editorial” section where I publish the things that move me so much I overcome my laziness and start writing.
I like journalism because it keeps people aware of what is going on around us, bearing witness to the main issues affecting the world today. Politics, technology, economics, and women’s rights are some of the many topics I am interested in. This blog is divided in categories to keep everything clear and ordered. The menu on the right “written for” helps you navigate through the different publications I have contributed to, including this blog.
