I’ve been a freelance Italian translator since January 2014. Born to French parents and raised in the enchanting Dolomites of Trentino (which I admit I often miss), in 2015 – after 9 years living in Bologna – I moved to Barcelona, a multicultural city which first captured my heart as an Erasmus student in 2008 and has enchanted me ever since.
More recently, however, the desire to live in the mountains again, in a peaceful and natural environment, is becoming stronger. There is no doubt in my mind that, one day, I will leave the city to reconnect with nature.
My passions include, of course, nature in all its forms, as well as sport, foreign languages, music, piano, food, cooking and natural nutrition, IT, technology and personal growth, to mention just a few.
Alongside my work as a translator for sustainability, climate and social justice, health and wellness, I volunteer on ecology and degrowth activism projects, as a member of the Italian degrowth movement (MDF). I am also a restarter (volunteer fixer) for Restarters Barcelona, an association that works within the Restart Project to tackle planned obsolescence (contributing to the reduction of electronic waste) and to encourage people to improve their relationship with the appliances and technological devices they own.
Over the last few years, I’ve become increasingly interested in nutrition as a cornerstone of wellness and health. Driven by some long-term symptoms which I had struggled to treat with tangible results through conventional medicine, I began eagerly investigating them for myself. I was highly motivated to discover the cause of my troubles and how they could be resolved naturally. Through this study, I gradually started to understand how crucial nutrition and lifestyle are for the state of our health and how easy it is, in our society, to undermine our well-being, as we constantly eat foods that are inflammatory and harmful. The awareness that I’ve developed on the subject over the last few years has shown me how passionate I am about this area, to the point that I’m considering undertaking studies in the healthy sector with a holistic approach.
