As a cultural manager and an active global citizen, I believe that culture, arts and education are a major force for growth, development and change globally.

I live my professional commitment as a mission at the service of the community, seeing my career as a path of growth, sharing and participation, which allows me to project myself into a global and multicultural dimension.
My guiding principles
Excellence, innovation, internationalism, sustainability
My areas of work
There are two main areas of work that I focus on in pursuing my professional, academic and civic responsibilities: cultural management and cultural diplomacy.
Being a cultural manager
A cultural manager is a professional who has the ability of developing strategies, planning initiatives, managing organizational processes, overseeing operational activities, administering resources, acting with competence and awareness between the humanistic, artistic, creative and intellectual dimension and the economic, legal, productive and social dimension.
Culture and the creative industries are a particularly vast, diversified and articulated sector which includes cultural heritage, the visual arts, the performing arts, music, theatre, dance, cinema, photography and all the others forms of artistic expression.
In this broad and complex dimension, the cultural manager can be active in both the public and private spheres, operating within foundations, companies, associations and other entities with or without legal status, as well as within local administrations, national institutions and international organizations.
Therefore, there are numerous areas of competence and functions to be fulfilled by the experts of cultural management, from the protection and enhancement of the artistic and cultural heritage to innovation and development, from the management of organizational, productive and economic aspects, to communication, marketing and fundraising.
Promoting cultural diplomacy
The encounter between the cultures of the world through the sharing and exchange of ideas, values, languages and artistic practices, is one of the founding social phenomena of civilization itself. Encouraging, strengthening and enhancing human relations at this level represents one of the most advanced and articulated forms of soft power: cultural diplomacy.
Through this form of positive and inclusive interaction, the promotion of dialogue, respect for diversity and mutual understanding between peoples and nations is encouraged, as an essential factor for strengthening intercultural dialogue, sustainable development and peace, in support of a broader action of political and economic cooperation at the international level.
International organizations, national governments and civil society organizations are therefore increasingly promoting a strategic approach to international cultural relations, encouraging cooperation and the co-creation of shared actions and programs, thus involving the cultural and artistic global community to build the society of tomorrow.
