Welcome to my profile! 

I'm Stefano, a native Italian speaker, and I have a very big passion for European languages, especially for German. I have been studying for a lot of time (13 years) in order to make foreign languages the focus of my professional life. I'm meant to work with them. I will very briefly try to show you why! Where did my passion, especially for German, arise from? From the age of five to ten my family and I used to travel every August from the South of Italy (where I was born and I spent my childhood) to Trentino. I remember I liked so much to try to repeat as best as possible the specific accent of that area, which sounds completly different from my native region's ones. I got it almost perfectly only after two days of practice. And I can assure you, Italian dialects can be defined as different languages. 

Because of geographic proximity of that region to Austria, Switzerland and Southern Germany, we had many opportunities to explore this vast natural zone. The wild and healthy atmosphere I breathed there, made of mountains, little rivers and castles, left a mark on me for life. I wanted to feel as part of it mastering the language which the inhabitants spoke. It was at that time that I unconsciously decided I would enjoy my life through German and foreign languages. 

Today I'm 34 years old and until now not a day has passed without improving my translation skills! Through my linguistic and literary studies (high school, Bachelor, Master, PhD) I gained competence in the fields of literature, arts (painting), history and philosophy. Over time, additionally, I discovered my passion for the exciting world of political and investigative journalism.
