I'm a blogger, journalist and communication specialist even if I see myself more as a storyteller. My passion for writing emerged slowly over the years at the university.

I started travelling as a teenager to learn foreign languages, and perhaps it was my constant roaming that led me to discover my sense of belonging to Emilia, something I thought I didn’t have. One day, while walking through the fields close to home with my dog, I had the sensation that sooner or later I would be putting pen to paper, expressing my passion in writing.

Through the stories that I write, my wish is to immortalise and share snapshots of life and places that will remain inscribed in the minds of we travellers.
