My first love is radio. In 2004, I started as a contributor to a show broadcasted on a local radio in Bologna, called Radio Città del Capo. At the time I was studying science communication at the University of Padua and I wanted to put in practice what I was studying. I then contributed to a programme called Pigreco Party for 8 years. I was then invited by the editor of the radio station to devise a show focused on technology and innovation, which is called Pensatech and is still running. Over the year, I have contributed to Italian radio science shows, such as Moebius on Radio24, IlSole24Ore and Radio3Scienza on the Italian national public radio RAI.
In parallel, I started working as a freelance science writer and journalist. I have contributed to several Italian and international media outlets. For example, I write for the Italian edition of Scientific American, Le Scienze, the Italian edition of Wired and Linkiesta.it.
My areas of interest have changed over time, progressively shifting from general scientific issues to more focused themes. Today, I like to write about nutrition, obesity-related diseases, epidemiology and environmental sciences. With a degree in history of science, I like to write about XIX century natural philosophy—my main area of interest at university—and scientific explorations.
