Marco Simoncelli

Adventurer born in Rome, in 1988. Crazily in love with Africa and its peoples, but also interested in the discovery of all that concerns developing countries in general. Freelance journalist by choice. I love that type of journalism in which the reporter doesn’t seek personal glory but remains blurred in the background. Just a witness trying to interpret the world’s complexity through human beings. The only real protagonists.
