I was born and grew up in Milan, Italy. I completed an undergraduate degree at King’s College London in International Politics with a study abroad programme at The University of Hong Kong, and a Master’s degree at University College London in Legal and Political Theory. I attended a journalism training programme at the Press Association, acquiring the National Council for the Training of Journalists diploma in the UK. I proceeded to acquire the journalistic certification required to practice in Italy, where I became formally registered as a professional journalist at the National Order of Journalists. I worked as a freelance journalist from the Arab world, Europe, the U.S., and Hong Kong. My work is based on in-depth reporting with voices on the ground to provide an authentic view to my readers. I write in both Italian and English. I first started working in North Africa for local newspapers; the Tunisian newspaper Tunisia Live and the Libyan newspaper Libya Herald. I also freelanced for regional Arab newspapers, including Middle East Eye, The New Arab, and Al-Monitor. After a year in North Africa I moved back to Italy, where I reported for American think tanks and outlets, including the Jamestown foundation, First Things Magazine, The Spectator, The Wall Street Journal, National Review, and others. The Italian newspapers include il Foglio, Gli Occhi della Guerra, and il Giornale. I received the Joseph Rago Fellowship for Excellence in Journalism at The Wall Street Journal’s Editorial page, where I worked for a year before deciding to become an independent journalist. I created this website as a portfolio.
