Foreign languages and Italian are my great passion. Since I was in high school, I have always strived to achieve my goals with determination. I have always believed that my linguistic skills can provide me with soft skills that are applicable in different contexts, including those unrelated to interpreting and translation.

Interpreting and translating require considerable cognitive effort and a selective and rigorous learning process. Interpreting does not only mean mastering a foreign language but also knowing a set of specialised knowledge outside linguistics and practical language learning.

For this reason, during my university years I have always cultivated my curiosity about marketing, economic and institutional subjects. I have always stepped out of my comfort zone to enter into the thoughts of experts. I got in contact with various topics and sources of my areas of specialisation both with specific courses and independently.

La mia passione per le lingue sta supportando la mia integrazione a Ginevra (CH) dove vivo da ottobre 2023.



On 11th-13th October the 19° EFNIL annual conference - European Federation of National Institutions for Language - was held.

I won EFNIL Master's Thesis Award. My Swiss colleague Chiara Ceppi is also co-winner.

La premiazione si è svolta a Vilnius, Lituania al Courtyard by Marriot City Center Hotel. La seconda giornata è stata tenuta al Parlamento Lituano (Seimas). Il premio è stato conferito da Dr. Sabine Kirchmeier, Presidente di EFNIL.

An article based on my thesis will be published. My work can be downloaded freely on the EFNIL website. We were awarded a scolarship.

Interpretazione di trattativa EN<>IT online settore Lighting Design e Energy Efficiency
Desidero congratularmi con te per la professionalità con cui hai trattato, nelle vesti di interprete, la call tenutasi oggi. Hai saputo gestire in modo ottimale una riunione caratterizzata da alcune difficoltà tecniche (tipiche dei meeting online) non banali. La tua traduzione è sempre stata puntuale e precisa e hai trasmesso in modo chiaro alcuni concetti del nostro settore particolarmente insidiosi. La figura dell'interprete, come ben so, è fondamentale per la buona riuscita di un appuntamento e di certo oggi hai fatto fare una bella figura alla Teel Srl e ai suoi Partner. Di certo avremo ancora bisogno del tuo supporto e non esiteremo a contattarti. Grazie ancora.
