Bio
I love writing as I am a journalist, I love learning as I’m a teacher and I love reading as I’m a good reader. But there’s another thing I love: translating.

I’m a journalist and I write on several magazines and newspapers. I’m the lead editor of an online newspaper, Punto a Capo Online, published by the no profit organization where I work as volunteer.

I worked for 10 years as Press Agent for an important Italian Trade Union, writing press releases, organizing press conferences and occasionally I still work for the above-mentioned no-profit organization Press Agency.

I teach English and French in an Informal Learning School and I like it very much. My students are adults who want to improve their language skills and there they can do it meeting new friends and having fun.

I teach Italian for Foreign people, too. Usually I have English, Irish and American students, even if I’ve taught East Europe and Indian people, too.

I’ve studied 5 foreign languages first at school and later at the university: English, Spanish, French, German and Japanese. I’ve studied Chinese and Arabic, yet, but I never speak or use these two languages.

As well as literature and poetry translations, I work as English to Italian translator on touristic, marketing, legal, IT and web or software jobs.

I think Italian grammar is very important but I believe the literary style is important as well. The style is something you create reading, and in my life there is always a book to read on the night stand.

That’s the reason why I write not only newspaper articles, but short stories, plays and sometimes poems. I’ve got many incomplete novels waiting for my attention and sooner or later I’ll take up my works again. That’s the reason why I hold conferences about Literature and Writing and every year they are attended by more and more people.
