Profile

Board Member at Mises Institute Italia, graduate in Political Science with a solid competence in international affairs, political theory and public policy. After having gained the chance of living, studying and working in the multicultural and global environments of Florence, New York and London, today my main interest lies in taking opportunities to spread the ethics of business and free market. I am particularly keen to develop public policies and to work in the private sector, both with the purpose to enhance individuals to fully express themselves through their ideas, improving society overall.
