I am an NCTJ qualified senior reporter in the South of England.

Born and raised in Italy, I moved to Southampton in 2014 to learn English.

I currently work as a Local Democracy Reporter in Hampshire as part of the scheme funded by the BBC and in partnership with local newspapers.

I mainly write about local politics and my stories are used by a number of organisations including local newspapers across Hampshire, the BCC and ITV.

Over the past year I interviewed several politicians including Sir Keir Starmer and  Prime Minister Boris Johnson – both on his visit to Southampton in December and more recently during the Downing Street media briefings broadcast by media including  the BBC and Sky.

I was Highly Commended in the Local Democracy Reporting Service Award 2020 for the Best Broadcast category.

In 2018 I worked as London correspondent for the RAI programme Tv Talk.


My journey in the UK began in 2014 and after spending two and a half years working in hospitality and retail, I started working  as a trainee reporter at The Southern Daily Echo.

I studied as a distance learner to complete the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism while continuing to study English. 

During my time at the Echo I covered  breaking news, court cases, inquests and public events. I ran live blogs during the elections and produced weekly newspapers.

In December 2019 I passed the NCTJ Level 6 National Qualification in Journalism and became a senior reporter.

Previously, First-Class Honours BA in Classics and First-Class Honours MA in Modern Literature, both from the University of Siena in Italy.

I love travelling, writing, dancing,  books, yoga, food, art and taking pictures.

I speak Italian, English, Spanish and I am currently learning Portuguese.

My motto: “No-one knows enough to be a pessimist.”
