Biography Letter

I have always been very interested in cross-cultural confrontation and mediation even though, as you can see from my curriculum, my chosen field of study and research is hard-science. On the other end, my field of professional intervention concerns not only the applicative aspects of research but also the area of cultural "absorption" of scientific notions. In other words, I deal with social representations and cultural mediation. Moreover, being involved in EU funded project I work every day with colleagues from all over Europe, with different backgrounds and interests, that I have to meet. A situation that is replicated in my associative life that places me in a series of international and intercultural relations that in fact requires mediation skills.

The added value of my associative life is precisely this: striving to combine differences and make them into resources: personal, relational, and community.

Primary Language: Italian

Field of Mediation: International

Professional Background

In 2019 I attended a two-week program on ADR in Berlin, deemed to satisfy the basic mediation training requirements for court appointment as a mediator pursuant to many American states' statutory and court rule standards. Since 2020 I collaborate with ADRpoint one of the largest private mediation centers in Europe registered in the ODR platform of the European Commission. Since 2020 I am a volunteer for International Academy of Dispute Resolution. In 2021 while being a Trainee Lawyer, I qualified as mediator under current italian legislation. Thanks to all the above I gained experience with different types of mediation: ODR and consumers’ rights, family mediation when minors are involved, intercultural mediation and migrants’ rights, international transactions and commercial disputes.

Biography Letter

Italian mediator, I enjoy using Italian, English and German to communicate with people from every walk of life. I have always fostered values of integrity, diversity, professionalism and worked to spread them around, while also raising awareness on the importance of people’s emotions.
I strive to create a community based on all the above-mentioned values and, as Mediation and the environment where I grew up have taught me, where the people are more empathetic towards one another.
I can help clients facing difficulties in communication; that need to overcome language barriers with other parties such as commercial partners, relatives, or the administrative system; in tense situation where legal breaches happened; when they seek rationality and calm.
