I was born and grew up in Milan, Italy. I completed an undergraduate degree at King’s College London (KCL) in International Politics with a study abroad programme at The University of Hong Kong (HKU), and a master’s degree at University College London (UCL) in Political Theory. I subsequently attended a journalism training programme at the Press Association, acquiring the National Council for the Training of Journalists (NCTJ) Diploma in the UK. I also acquired the journalist certification required by the government in Italy, where I became formally registered as a professional journalist at the Order of Journalists of Lombardy. During this time, I worked as a freelance journalist focusing on North Africa, Italy, the United States of America, and more recently China and Hong Kong. My work is mostly based on in-depth reporting with voices on the ground, trying to provide an authentic view to readers. I write in both Italian and English. I first started working in North Africa for local newspapers; the Tunisian newspaper Tunisia Live and then the Libyan newspaper Libya Herald. I also reported for regional Arab newspapers, which include Middle East Eye, The New Arab, Al-Monitor, and Al Bawaba. After a year in North Africa, I moved back to Italy, where I reported for American and Italian think tanks and outlets, including Jamestown foundation, First Things Magazine, Spectator USA, The Spectator (UK version), Washington Examiner, The American Conservative, The Wall Street Journal, and National Review; the Italian ones include il Foglio, Gli occhi della Guerra, il Giornale, La Verità and Formiche. I’m an incoming fellow at The Wall Street Journal’s Editorial Page, where I will start working in September. I created this website as a portfolio.
