Welcome to my profile! 

I'm Stefano, a native Italian speaker, and I'm an editorial and journalistic translator from German into my mother tongue. I studied for a long time (13 years) in order to make translating the focus of my professional life. I'm meant to work on it and I will very briefly try to show you why! Where did my passion for German arise from?

When I was a child, my family and I used to spend our summer holidays in Trentino. Because of its geographical proximity to Austria, Switzerland and Southern Germany, we had many opportunities to explore this vast natural zone as well. The wild and healthy atmosphere I breathed there, made up 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 of those lands spoke, an interior and irresistible impulse moved me to take possession of those magical and incomprehensible speech sounds and words. It was at that time that I unconsciously decided I would enjoy my life through German.

Now I'm 35 years old and until this moment not a day has passed without improving and cultivating my translation skills! Through my German studies (high school, Bachelor, Master, PhD), I gained a theoretical background and competence for translating in the fields of literature, art history (painting, sculpture and architecture), history and philosophy. Over time, I additionally discovered my aptitude for the exciting world of political, investigative and environmental journalism.
