Professional journalist and presenter with a keen curiosity about the world of nature and art.
I have a decade of experience as an author, TV format host and event moderator (Italian/English).
From 2011 to 2021, I collaborated permanently with the editorial staffs of TeleArena, TeleMantova and RadioVerona.
Among others, I was the hostess of the Veronese TV service rotogravure “Sei a casa” where, for five years, I reported daily live on current events, character and solidarity stories, customs and traditions.
I also have a great passion for the pet world, which I expressed by leading the program “Noah’s Arena” dedicated to the world of animals for four seasons (2016 – 2020).
Also on green themes, I hosted from 2018 to June 2021 “Vieverdi,” a weekly appointment with the world of agriculture, food and wine, and typical traditions of Northern Italy.
Since 2016, for three summers, I have been a correspondent of the TV format “A place in the front row” for interviews, reviews, trivia and behind-the-scenes coverage of shows in Verona.
I am now multimedia journalistic communication consultant, public speaking and stage direction for Coldiretti Veneto, CLEF Veneto, CSV Verona.
I follow integrated communication projects, conduct ad hoc broadcasts on several TV stations, create working groups for complex video productions, curate ongoing (ANCE Verona, Teatro Salieri) or project-based (Internazionali Tennis Verona, Festa Grande a Santa Viola, Fondazione Barbieri, Belluzzo International Partners) press offices.
I speak English, modern Hebrew and Yiddish.
I love working in teams and turning obstacles into opportunities.
