They say I’m intransigent. They say I’m diplomatic. All this, together with an eternal English aplomb. Probably it’s all true. I am also determined to always give of my best and that is possibly my best quality. At times I can be a little “reckless”; twice I have jumped in with my eyes closed – first time when I joined the Sicily CB and then at the CBI – but they have proved to be the moves which have given me the greatest satisfactions.

Twelve years full of passion in Communication, Great Events and international Festival, related to the cultural field and to the performing arts. My purpose in the MICE sector is to bring to it creativity and originality.

Friendly and empathetic, I have always been fascinated by the magical world of events. Despite a strong passion for technology and computer science, cultivated during my university studies, I experienced the organization of events from two fundamental points of view: from the agency’s and the corporate’s one. During my experience in CBI I understood that the satisfaction that comes from a successful event is peerless.

I was born in Sicily, but, since a very young age, I used to live in many different places. Wherever I go, I always take with me the scent of the sea and the warmth of the Sicilian sun, that makes me feel like home in every place in the world.
Growth with bread, classical culture and ethics of work, I studied Art and Conservation of Cultural Assets. Knowing the importance of communication, I approach the world of the MICE industry with the same enthusiasm and curiosity that I put into every new challenge. I love all the beauty that I can meet on my path.
