Who am I:

An archaeologist working in space and a rugby athlete, reaching for my impossible.

What I do:

I am the managing director of Space Is For You, showing how space benefits life on Earth. I also advocate for space as SGAC National Point of Contact for Italy, connecting the Italian space sector with the young generation and showing them all the possibilities it holds.
As a scientist, I am a visiting scholar at Blue Marble Space Institute of Science, studying the origin of life.

My journey in the space sector has been unusual, starting with my degrees.

And if you’d like a break from space, sometimes I also post about rugby and how sports can teach you to become a team member and never give up on your dreams.

Who I follow on Linkedin

Simonetta di Pippo – she’s an expert on space economy and a role model to me. I follow her mostly to keep up to date with news on space economy and events.

❝For the first time, I’ve told publicly that I’ve failed, multiple times. It was actually great to share it, as this was also a reminder for myself that I cannot stop and give up.❞

❝It is the most successful because of two reasons.

1- I’ve tagged two universities that are followed by a lot of people.

2- I’ve attracted people with my writing style, curious to know what happened next at the summer school.

I know this because I’ve shared my post with my community and this was also their main feedback.❞
