About me
I am a native Italian speaker, normally residing in Turin (Italy). For the last four years I have been living and working near Portland, Oregon (USA). I have a degree in Modern Languages and Literatures - Spanish and English (University of Turin - 110/110 cum laude; dissertation on Chicano Literature and "Spanglish").
I began translating excerpts of pedagogical texts for my colleagues as a school teacher employed by the Italian Foreign Ministry in the "European School" in Brussels (Belgium), then in the "Centro Culturale Italiano" in Buenos Aires (Argentina), and later in the "Italian School" in Madrid (Spain).
My experience in the field of education includes conducting numerous workshops to update primary schools teachers on the contents and methods of language teaching, creative writing, art and photography. In 2005 I published a manual of creative writing, "Scrivere di sé" (Edizioni Sonda).
I am a translator and editor for the following organizations: Traduttori per la Pace (ES,EN>IT), Radio Mundo Real (EN, ES>IT), and IAI (International Alliance of Inhabitants)(EN, FR, ES>IT). I also translate for ICDL (International Children's Digital Library) (EN, ES, FR>IT) and for several Turin-based professionals and advertising agencies (see Curriculum).
