I work as a conference interpreter in both technical and general fields. I have received important and challenging assignments that gave me the possibility to work for important representatives of Italy's public and private sector, politicians, VIPs, athletes, scientists, EU representatives and commissioners and others. I also receive assignments from US. British, Malaysian, and French translation agencies.

I have an extensive experience as chef d'équipe, managing up to 6 interpreting teams, and organiser of interpreting services for direct clients. E.g. I was involved in the organisation of the interpreting teams for some events organised during the Italian EU presidency (2003).
