I obtained a Degree in Economics at the University of Bocconi and I started my career in mass-market companies like Nestlé, Reckitt&Colman and Danone. In 1998 I joined “Go” as sales and marketing manager and I managed the launch of the first low cost airline company in Italy, and afterwards its acquisition on the part of EasyJet. In 2003 I became Italy country manager of Hapag-Lloyd Express, a low cost airline company of the group Tui, which became TUIfly in 2007. When TUIfly was acquired from AirBerlin, I became Business manager of the German company in Italy. Recently I’ve worked for the LetsBonus Italy start-up as country manager.

I came in contact with tourism in my small family travel agency. I grew up amongst travel catalogues and customers looking for the perfect holiday, and from a game it bacame a passion. A passion that has kept me browsing and discovering new places, through specialized magazines, internet or travelling, always looking for the peculiarity in each location. I began to work in the travel agency right after graduating high school. There I enjoyed guiding groups of tourists and selling flights to the Caribbeans. I worked as a desk travel agent for ten years. Then I landed in Cisalpina Tours as the Sales and Account Manager for tourist services for big enterprises. After that I was promoted as the area manager for all travel agencies of the Cisalpina Vivere e Viaggiare Group in Norht Eastern Italy. In 2006 I began a new and exciting challange with Boscolo Tours Group as the Gift Box Project Managaer and as chief of the Individual Travel section.

Since October 2008 I have been working in the corporate field, civil law and consumers’ rights in the law firm R&P Legal in Milan.
I started working in the “viral” world both for fun and for vocation. Keen on everything has to do with the fantastic world of technology, computer science and innovation, I never disconnect from the web and I always carry with me my ultimate generation pc and mobile, my personal virtual lab. I love to hack all the computer systems and in most of the cases I cause many troubles…but I am always able to fix it all. I live between Bologna and Basilicata and thanks to it I can satisfy my passion for travel. I administrate some personal websites and a blog about Basilicata. In 2010 I started to follow the Scontrinando.it project, managing the prototyping, launching, operational and technological phases. Then I decided to continue dedicating myself to the passion for web and marketing by approaching and studying seo&sem techniques. I finally arrived at Weekend Company and I still can say that it is possible to have fun by turning your passions into a job, especially if you have to deal with a crazy and genius team. Oh, I forgot…among all these things, I graduated in Business and Marketing at Alma Mater Studiorum di Bologna.
