Degree in Anthropology from La Sapienza University of Rome.

Master’s Degree in “Religion and Cultural Mediation” from La Sapienza University of Rome.

Master’s Degree in Historic – Religious Studies.





After my degree in Anthropology from the Sapienza University of Rome I went on to obtain a Master’s Degree with honors in Religion and Cultural Mediation with a dissertation on the teaching of religion in the public education system. Subsequently I specialized in Historic – Religious Studies by completing another Master’s Degree.

During the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy I was part of the editorial board of the “ Roma per il Giubileo – Jubilee of Rome” website. My activities included journalism and reportage.

My previous experiences include: working as a middle and secondary school educator; conducting a course, as part of the “Incontri – Encounters” project, on the main religious identities present in Italy at the Centro Astalli Foundation;  conducting a course entitled “Portholes – Refugee Stories” aimed at encouraging a reflection on the issue of exile through direct contact with refugees and listening to their first hand experiences.

I have been involved with training and integration with the UVA – universolaltro association where I was able to put my knowledge and skills on interreligious dialogue to use. In particular, I planned and coordinated intervention and training strategies to promote social cohesion in multi-religious and multicultural contexts.

I thus decided to deepen my knowledge regarding immigration, asylum and the right to social and cultural integration by attending the course “Protection, integration and vulnerability of migrants and refugees” at the Sapienza University of Rome.
