'All knowledge is connected to all other knowledge. The fun is in making the connections.'
Italian, from various origins, I moved between Italy, France, Brazil, and the United Kingdom before settling in London, UK. I am a sociologist, specialized in international development. I have always been fascinated by human beings and all their cultural shades.
I have been working in the social sector for over 15 years, first as a journalist, and then as a programme designer and evaluator in the international development and humanitarian sector. I like to dig deep into issues, observing and questioning them from various angles, identifying gaps and discovering details, and then connecting it all into new ideas, and I believe in the power of doing this together. I believe that influencing change is possible with good communication, some humour, and a lot of patience! With Nesta Innovation Foundation, and as a freelancer now, I have had the privilege of doing this globally, developing innovative processes and tools across various topics like sexual and reproductive health, mHealth, off-grid refrigerator system, data-driven farming, seed value chain, humanitarian early warning system, cash transfers, and youth self-development and education, amongst others.
Joining the Sonder Collective was truly refreshing to me because I felt we shared a common goal to listen to the others and to challenge ourselves to always add value to deliver the most creative and impactful processes and strategies.
