I was born in Sinalunga, in the Siena province, May the 17th 1985. After countless geographic adventures and a course of studies in medicine prematurely put aside, I end up in Siena at the faculty of Lettere and Filosofia. There I enrol in "Foreign languages, literatures and cultures" graduating in English and Russian. My graduation thesis is about the "comparison" of two different Italian translations of the same English source text. My deep passion for translation came up this way, almost by chance...

I have completed a Master in translation and editing of literary texts at the Siena University and just started a PhD in Translation Studies at the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.

My heart and brains are equally shared between Italian and English, but I always save some room for the man I love.
