User Bio

I am a producer, director and author of short-films, documentaries and videos in the field of culture and science.
I have being working in audiovisuals since 1997. After having graduated in International and Diplomatic Sciences at the University of Trieste, and having specialized in Risk Management in Padova, I moved to Rome where I started to collaborate as news producer with foreign broadcasters and news agencies (ARD, BBC, Reuters, AP, WTN, etc.). I collaborated for many years as researcher and First Assistant Director to a number of series for Channel 4, HBO, PBS, Discovery Channel UK and US. Since 2005 I live in Trieste, Italy.
As director and author, I realized many documentary works - among them: "The weak current", a long-feature film broadcasted in France on Histoire-TF1 and in Italy on RAI 3, "Eutopia" , a documentary series broadcasted on ARTE in France and Germany, "Seeds of science" and "Unwired", documentaries broadcasted on RAI 3 in Italy.
Recently I started to collaborate with international scientific institutions based in my home town Trieste. Among them: The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) and the Organization for Women in Science (OWSD).
I teach multimedia and documentary film at SISSA - the International School for Advanced Studies.
