I’m a journalist who focuses on environmental, commercial and labour market issues, exploring the connections between the economic interests of multinational corporations, commercial politics that are influenced by lobbyists and the damaging effects that systems of industrial production and distribution have on the environment as well as the health of workers and consumers.
In the past few years I’ve devoted my attention to new generation free-trade treaties and to the quality of nutrition, with a particular focus on the behaviour of corporations regarding questions of intellectual property and biodiversity conservation.
I’ve worked for the principal Italian media outlets, such as Ansa, Il Messaggero and Il Manifesto, and as a correspondent from New York, Buenos Aires and New Delhi. Additionally, I recently worked for the press office of the Monsanto Tribunal in The Hague, and in the communication departments of several Italian NGOs, as well as for the ILO (International Labour Organisation). I currently work for Navdanya International.
