About me

I have always believed that the understanding of the world can be made through the understanding of Languages and Arts, and can be used to help connect people. My passion for culture led to a great deal of travelling and, after my Double Degree in History of Art and Archeology and Political Science, I lived in Rome for one year and have now resided in London for almost five years. Thus, I am fluent in both French and Italian. My passion for organising events, meeting new people and developing new projects, led me to participate within lots of organisations. Being aware of Arts and History being everywhere around us, I am always thinking of new ways to make it more accessible. All these experiences have given me the opportunity to work with different audiences, different institutions, and inspiring people. They gave me the opportunity and trained me to work in a busy environment whilst maintaining a good atmosphere, discipline and relationships with both the public and colleagues.

    • Founded as an experimental academic centre in Vincennes in 1969, Université Paris 8 moved to Saint-Denis in 1980. Our university has become a major teaching and research centre for humanities in the Île-de-France region. The main objective of Université Paris 8 - with its focus on humanities, human sciences, arts and social scienceshas always been to give students a better understanding of the modern world while enabling them, at the same time, to achieve a long-term integration into society. In this third year of Political Science I specialised in Sociology. For my dissertation I questioned the access of art. "Is Art accessible for everyone?" I did a sociological study of artistic squats in Paris and I show how they tried to answer to these question in alternative ways.
