About me

fields of expertise

Communication management of creative industries, such as cinema, fashion and food; Classic Languages and Culture Studies (Greek and Latin). I'm an eclectic and creative person: I love writing and screenwriting, and art and fashion design, as well as photography and videomaking. Social sciences, such as philosophy and sociology, are at the core of my academic research; and my interdisciplinary studies embrace anthropology and comparative literatures also. Both Italian and Polish are my mothertongues, and I speak English and Spanish as well. As I've been studying and practicing acting for ten years, my projects often make references to theater and cinema, and to pluralistic implications of intercultural comparisons between both classic and contemporary movies, plays and musicals.

I´m constantly looking for

I'm constantly looking for constructive collaboration and dialogue with people belonging to different socio-cultural contexts: I believe that every day I can broaden my horizons and my knowledge through active participation into international cross-cultural projects and initiatives. Being a curious and eclectic person, I love creating connections between different fields of expertise, and, as I am sociable and eager to learn, I'm looking forward to collaborating with people with a strong entrepreneurial vocation. I believe in Humanity in the broader and deepest meaning of the word, and I want to improve our societies and our future, by promoting inclusive projects and ideas, as well as making people more and more aware of discrimination, inequalities and violation of human rights within different geo-political contexts and fields of expertise. I'm constantly looking for people who share my social and cultural commitment and can enrich my worldview, helping me become the best version of myself.
