Vice president, Europe project office director
Graduated in International Relations, I also have a master in History, Economic, Policies of the European Union. European for sincere vocation and sense of belonging, I am in charge of designing, writing and managing social projects, coordinating GEA’s project office and developing relations and networking with organizations and networks that operates in the social field in Europe.
I strongly believe that contributing to everyone’ rights and equality is the only key to a better society that goes beyond social and geographical borders and diversities. Even if the action of a single person is very important, networking among public institutions and other parties is fundamental.
Vice president, Italy project office director
Carpenter by birth and vocation, the migration in the far 1990 from Central Italy to the North-East led me to become a professional in what were the experiences of welcoming and sharing, the passion for human relations and between peoples, the vision of a fraternal world.
Since then until today in GEA – of which I am co-founder – I deal with the integration and social inclusion of migrants, in all their articulated events and phases of life, whether they are single workers or families, victims of trafficking or applicants for international protection.
The degree in Religious Sciences, the specializations in Counselling and Systemic Mediation, the memberships of national and international associations that deal with issues dear to me – Oxfam Italia, Società Italiana Medicina delle Migrazioni and others – are “only” useful tools in the path.

Contact person for educational projects with schools and educational institutions, also taking care of anti-discrimination projects, managing relations with regional anti-discrimination observatory. Responsible for the welcoming service for foreign citizens seeking international protection.
Social worker, project manager
With a background in Social Work, a Master’s degree in Local Development and a Master’s degree in Europlanning, I work as a social worker in the management and follow-up of activities with asylum seekers and victims of trafficking welcomed in Extraordinary Reception Centres.
I am also involved in the design and development of tourist, social, artistic and theatrical activities in Italy and across Europe within the framework of European programmes, including the Europe for Citizens programme; Erasmus+ KA2-KA3, Erasmus+ Western Balkans, Erasmus+ Sport, AMIF.
I believe in a social change that starts from people, who, through innovative and creative tools, become once again the protagonists of their processes of empowerment and autonomy.
Psychologist, project assistant
Clinical psychologist, I collaborate with GEA in the management of FAMI projects.
I like finding myself on the side of those who are looking for resources to make a change on the critical aspects of the context in which we are living, choosing to roll up your sleeves instead of complaining.
I dream of moving the office on the top of a mountain or by the sea, combining my love for nature with my job.
Business degree, project manager
I graduated in Economics in Rome in 2016. Since then, I started my career path that eventually led me to Gea where I have to deal with the management and reporting of FAMI and Erasmus + projects.
I get genuine enthusiasm in seeing how each project can have a very strong impact in our community making me a changemaker. This is for me the greatest achievement.
When I get back from the office, time flies between running, cycling, climbing and yoga. Yes, I also love doing sports.
Social worker, project assistant
Graduated in Science in Social Work I am also trained as a criminal mediator and I strongly believe in the Restorative Justice paradigm, not only on a criminal level but extended 360° as a way of life.
We live in a society and we thrive on the sociality and networks we create in both our personal and professional lives. We inevitably share the same land and since those who guard it most often tend not to be inclusive and welcoming, I feel the need to help those who have the most difficulty in building relationships and resolving conflicts.
