sil-unterwegsPassionate about meeting with the Other, traveling,
discovering diversity and telling stories through words and images

I studied journalism and human rights, with a focus on multimedia and visual journalism. I was born in the mountainous North Italy and grew up with a constant curiosity and yen for adventures. Studying in Italy, Germany, Poland and the USA, and visiting Nepal, India and other European countries has encouraged me to keep wandering in the world and telling the stories of the people I meet on the way. I pursued a Master degree in Human Rights at the University of Padova (Italy), and I spent a semester abroad at Boston University, with a focus on photojournalism, online journalism, investigative journalism and narrative journalism. I interned as a photojournalist for the Harvard Gazette, Harvard’s official newspaper, and shot photos for the online magazine BU News Service. Previously I collaborated and wrote for IlViviPadova and CafèBabel. I am particularly interested in diversity, intercultural dialogue, cities, urban regeneration, community projects and local traditions and cultural expressions. After the university, I traveled to Lebanon to work in communication in the humanitarian and development field, contributing especially as a photographer and video-maker… and I have not left thus far.
