About Me


I started my career in journalism over 20 years ago, after graduating in Foreign Languages and Literature. 

I published two photographic books about Naples, my hometown, in southern Italy, and started writing for local newspapers, weekly and monthly magazines.


I founded and directed my own weekly arts magazine (La Voce dello Spettacolo) until in 2001 I was hired by the Reuters News Agency to contribute to the launch of their first online general news service.

After being promoted as deputy head of the Reuters general news service, I moved to the agency's international desk in 2010 as fashion, retail and consumer goods correspondent.


I wrote features and produced multimedia news packages for Reuters, which have been published by primary newspapers including the New York Times, The Guardian, Liberation and several others. 

After working on secondments in Paris, Dublin, London and Washington DC, I decided to move to the US to seek more exciting life and work opportunities. 


I currently live and work in Washington, DC, although I often travel back to Italy. I write, edit and translate news articles for international media on topics ranging from business & finance to politics and lifestyle. I produce and edit news and corporate videos.
