A “Law” and “Science of Communication” graduate, and an “Economics” Ph.D. candidate  at LUMSA of Rome, I also hold a Master of Arts in Public Management. After my studies at Harvard (American constitutional Law) and University of Massachusetts (Negotiations), I’ve spent one year as a parliamentary assistant at the Massachusetts State House. Returning from the US, I worked in public affairs for the trade association Confcooperative, and starting from 2003 I led the lobbying office of the consulting firm Reti Spa (while being the link for the European network of Public Policy Fipra). I was later hired by Microsoft for the Italy Government Affairs Manager role. At the end of 2008, I set up Open Gate Italia with other two partners, bringing it on the podium of top public affairs companies in Italy in less than 5 years.
