I was born in 1984 in Molise, a small mountain region, in southern Italy. I grew up in a small family farm working since I was a child. My father is the tenth generation of our family to have worked the land. I'm the first one who had the chance to choose my path. After my master graduation in contemporary history at the University of Siena, I'm about to earn my PhD in social history at Ca’Foscari University of Venice.
